Project Description

Financial Times

The Financial Times (FT) is an English-language international daily newspaper with a special emphasis on business and economic news and has an average daily readership of 2.2 million people worldwide. The online version has 4.5 million registered users and over 285,000 digital subscribers, as well as 600,000 paying users and has more than 1.7 million registered users.


The Financial Times holds industry round table meetings, attended by experts and industry insiders, on a range of topics. Such roundtables are attended by up to 15 people. They require accurate reporting of discussions, which can then be used to produce articles for the FT’s monthly industry magazines.

Approach / Solution

  • Global Lingo expert writers attended one of the FT’s roundtables to take notes and audio recordings of the proceedings.
  • A tidied-up transcript was produced, attributing all speakers and their discussion points in a clear format, with subheadings for ease of reference and readability.
  • The completed transcript was delivered within 3 days, and consequently used by the FT journalists to create the final published article.


  • Expert focus could remain on the meeting rather than the required notes.
  • A high quality tidied-up transcript was produced in a short amount of time, enabling FT writers to use this as the basis for their published article.
