TRANSCRIPTION

Since day one Pronto has been engaged in the transcription of recordings from meetings, interviews and presentations for the purposes of publication. Our large and diverse team of transcribers allows us to produce exactly the sort of copy that you want regardless of sound quality, regional accents or subject matter.

  Our transcribing workforce mainly consists of professional editors, journalists and English teachers from a variety of professional, academic and national backgrounds. Many have particular areas of expertise ranging from energy and engineering to finance and law, which we utilise when allocating work. This ensures that jargon, regional accents and other challenges do not compromise quality, accuracy and turnaround time. Transcripts are proofread and edited to ensure that your own editorial teams receive reliable and ‘clean’ material with which to work. If the client prefers, we can also paraphrase recordings to turn even the roughest recoding into publishable copy without compromising accuracy.

During the course of transcription, particularly while paraphrasing at the same time, it is obviously vital that any potentially important information is not misunderstood. Unfamiliar place names, company names and technical jargon, often accompanied by a heavy accent or bad sound quality, increase the potential for inaccuracies. If there is any question of whether a word or subject has been understood correctly, the time in the recording is noted in the text, marked red, and followed by a phonetic transcription of the offending piece of the recording. This allows editors or teams on the ground to deduce what the word should have been without always having to go back through the recording.

Our rates largely depend on the length of your recordings, the presence of multiple speakers, the quality of the audio and the requested turnaround time.
