Transcription Services

What is transcription?

Transcription services refer to the process of transcribing an audio material into a written script or vice-versa.

A little bit of History

Transcription has always existed, since the Antiquity. At that time, scriveners were the nowadays transcribers. Before the 1970s, secretaries might struggle with transcription and used several means such as shorthand (also called stenography, brachygraphy or tachygraphy) to deal with a transcription.

Professional Transcription Service

In our technological world, it becomes easy to record everything with the introduction of the Dictaphone or the smart phone in the late 1970s. Writing becomes a burden that people would rather leave behind. Courts, doctors and businesses often use transcription in order to have a written evidence of their data. Therefore, at BTA, we provide a professional and qualified transcription service which offer certified transcriptions of your meetings, audio and video recordings.

Our services include the following areas:

  • Interview transcriptions

Accurate and Professional Transcription Services

Transcription seems easy to do when you read the definition. However, it requires accuracy, professionalism, attention, and excellent writing skills. Indeed, no speech is clear and noiseless. A transcriber has to stay focus on the main speaker and not on the side speakers who might talk with each other. Everybody also has a different way of speaking. Some of them have foreign or native – accent, some of them might be sick, some others even might mispronounce or stumble over words.

A professional transcriber should be able to deal each of these difficulties and transcribe with utmost accuracy and impartiality the materials he/she is in charge of. A transcriber should also know how to type with utmost rapidity. Speakers will not stop to wait for the transcriber to write down every word they say.

That is the reason why BTA makes sure to provide the most qualified and professional transcribers who will deal with your documents with utmost sense of responsibility.
