We transcribe your audio at a reduced price, tailored to your needs

What is audio and video transcription?:

The transcription service corresponds to the conversion of audiovisual content into text and has several purposes, such as the following:

  • Transcription for further translation and subtitling for people who:
  • Do not understand the language of the original audio
  • Have hearing impairment
  • They prefer to read the subtitles in the source language, facilitating the understanding exposed by the audio and image
  • Adaptation
  • To be used in judgments and arbitration, plenary sessions and commissions, etc.

We perform 2 types of transcription, natural and literal:

audio and video transcription

  • Natural transcription: it is the most common transcription, simple and adapted for reading. This type of transcription provides a clearer and more natural text, since non-relevant information is not transcribed, such as interjections, interruptions, disconnected and/or repeated sentences, as well as errors and speech defects.
  • literal transcription: everything heard from the audio is transcribed (unfinished, repeated words, errors, sounds, etc.).

Our transcriptions are performed by transcribers native in the language of the original audio and with extensive experience in transcription.

You will be able to choose the format in which you want to receive the text and request the option of time record of each speech.

If you already have the transcript but are not sure of its quality, you can request the transcription review service.

Once the transcription is finished, if the client so wishes, we can provide other related services:

  • Audiovisual Translation: performed by another experienced translator, native in the target language of the translation. This will rely on both transcription and audio and video materials and will have access to information such as tone of voice, facial expression, intonation, etc.
  • Subtitling:
    • From the transcription, in the same original language as the audiovisual file.
    • Translating audiovisual content into different languages.

Types of videos that are often transcribed:

  • Institutional and educational videos
  • Project presentation
  • Disclosure of services
  • Informative video
  • Translation of interviews
  • Telephone conversations
  • Meetings
  • Seminars, conferences, lectures and classes

Why should transcription be performed by professional native-speaking transcribers?

Contrary to what many people think, transcription is not an easy task and should not be done by anyone or automatic tools.

The document transcription service presents several difficulties, such as: poor recording quality, diction and pronunciation problems of the people who are speaking, background noise or any interferences, the number of people who are speaking, the lack of context and non-verbal language.

Considering all these difficulties and fulfilling our mission to excel in the quality of our services, at NearU we select our best native transcribers to carry out the transcription of your content.
