Professional, flexible and cost effective audio and digital transcription services
for businesses, organisations and individuals provided
by a team of highly experienced UK transcribers

We specialise in digital transcription services of audio sound files and video formats (including dss transcription, wav transcription, mp3 transcription, wma transcription and many more) whether via FTP, or on CD or DVD. We transcribe from mini tapes, micro cassettes as well as providing standard audio tape transcription services, and are equipped for European format video tapes and minidisc conversion and transcribing.

We undertake transcription of university research interviews and one-to-one interview transcription, conference transcription, telephone interviews, vox pops, webcasts and podcast transcription for everything from correspondence dictation , lectures, forums, seminars, meetings, speeches, focus groups, manuscripts and reports to oral history interview transcription and teleconferences.

We are committed to supporting a range of transcription clients including academic researchers, organisations, hospitals, individuals, small businesses, authors, advertising agencies, consultants, market researchers and film makers. We are pleased to offer a discounted transcription service to all charities, universities and students. Our professionalism is of paramount importance to us and we respect all clients' confidentiality and privacy. We are the preferred transcription supplier to a wide range of companies and institutions and we believe our Testimonial page speaks for itself, with comments from a long line of satisfied clients.

Online since 1998, we use only highly experienced, reliable transcribers based in the UK with a wide range of expertise in a variety of markets. We never outsource to overseas agencies and English is our first language. We pride ourselves on delivering accurate transcripts, where attention to detail and presentation is crucial and to whatever deadline suits our clients.

All recordings are listened to a second time, research is carried out where necessary and all transcripts are proofread - all at no extra cost to the client by the Director, Irene Boston to ensure that our high quality standards are maintained. We never compromise those standards by taking on more transcription than we have the capacity to deal with. We do not restrict ourselves to 'normal' office hours and, if your project is urgent, we are pleased to offer a flexible service to meet your needs, not our convenience.

Whatever the size of your transcription project, whether it's a one off lecture or a lengthy interview project or series of conferences, we are committed to providing a personalised, professional service, tailored to your specifications. If your transcription project is on a large scale such as ongoing university research interviews, a series of focus groups or regular podcasts, we have extensive experience in project management. Email us or call us direct on 01485 543746 and we will be pleased to provide a quote based on your individual requirements and our current schedule.

Our website contains a wealth of information which we have compiled over many years in the transcription services industry. Please feel free to read our pages for free advice on the different types of transcription available, guidelines for facilitation and recording tips, a FAQs section, information on the factors which influence transcription times, how our pricing structure works, plus general information on the benefits of digital as opposed to analogue recordings. We offer a free digital re-recording service for all analogue recordings, and can provide advice on the appropriate equipment to use for whatever recording situation.

New to all this? Not sure how to conduct an interview, let alone effectively facilitate and record a meeting or focus group? Please review our Transcription Guidelines on everything from oral history interviews, teleconferences and webcasts to focus groups, workshops and conferences.
