Our verbatim transcripts will capture everything exactly as spoken, down to the last word, with a focus on accuracy and precision. These transcripts preserve the intent of a speaker’s statements, essential when every detail is of critical importance. We use a light editorial touch to capture hesitation and emphasis on the page.


This is also known as ‘intelligent verbatim’. It is the distinction between the spoken and written word, perfect when the content may be used for publication. By removing the stumbles and pauses that can occur when people speak, a tidied-up transcription gets to the speaker’s core points in detail, while editing out obvious mistakes.

Single stage transcription

Single-stage transcription is the process of translating any audio or video content directly into another language in the written form. It is perfect for webinars, research interviews, marketing videos, TV, film and radio or any video or audio files needing to be transcribed into another language quickly and efficiently.

For example, a 60-minute French film could be transcribed directly into English in one step. This typically requires less time (three times as fast in most cases) and therefore less budget than the traditional two steps (French transcription, followed by French-to-English written translation). 

We use only native speakers, which means monolingual editing of the target language can be used. This is followed by a stage of bilingual editing of the target language against the source audio or video file. This ensures that the transcription and translation are as accurate as possible whilst sounding natural.

Ensure consistency with linguistic sign-off

Linguistic sign-off (LSO) is part of the translation process. After the translation, proofreading, editing and quality assurance steps have been completed, LSO might be a necessary step. If a document requires further manipulation from a file engineer or a designer to reach its final format, our quality assurance process ensures text and formatting appear identical to the original content.

LSO can be used for web and software localisation as well as print collateral. It ensures that no errors are encountered post-delivery when the respective collateral or programmes are in use.
