The very best multilingual transcription service provider

Language without limits

Veritas has extensive experience providing professional transcription services across all languages enabling us to meet your individual or business needs. Combining transcription services together with award winning professional translation services is in itself an art, but at Veritas this is all part of our excellent service.

The process of transcription involves converting either live or recorded speech into a written or electronic text document. There are two primary methods of transcription: dictation typing of correspondence and reports, and interview transcription. Dictation typing involves just one person dictating, whilst interview transcription includes two or more people.

Veritas’ transcription services are flexible and can cater for your UK or international requirements

Veritas work with over 200 languages and thousands of language pairs, so whatever the language you wish to produce a transcription into or from, we have professional linguists and transcription experts who can produce the perfect transcription document for you.

Although most commonly used for business, legal or medical purposes, we can provide you with transcription services whatever sector or industry you work in. Common examples include court proceedings (in which of course recording devices for audio transcription cannot be used) and medical staff such as physicians recording voice notes.

We can send professional linguists to events like speeches or seminars who will then convert the spoken contents of the event into text. You may require recorded speech on cassette, CD, VHS, or as sound files, in which case we can cater for all your requirements.

Transcription – changing through technological advancements

The introduction of tape cassettes and portable recorders, like walkmans, in the late 1970s, made transcription much easier and new possibilities emerged. Cassettes, as with CDs etc. today, could travel through internal or external mail, which meant that for very the first time the transcriptionists could have the work brought to them in their own office which could be in a different location or business. Transcriptionists could also now work from home for many different businesses at their own convenience, provided they met the deadlines required by their clients.

With the advanced technology of today, people can have almost anything transcribed quickly. An mp3 based dictaphone, for example, can be used to record the sound. The recording can then be uploaded to a PC/laptop and emailed within minutes to someone who could be anywhere in the world. The transcriptionist can then replay the audio an infinite number of times. The sound can also be filtered, equalised or have the tempo adjusted when the clarity is poor.

The completed document can then be emailed back and printed out or incorporated into other documents – all within just a few hours of the original recording being made. The industry standard for transcribing an audio file takes one hour for every 15 minutes of audio. For live usage, real-time text transcription services are available for captioning purposes, including Remote CART, Captioned Telephone, and live closed captioning during live broadcasts.
