Ready made transcription
Due to the various needs of our clients, we offer different transcription formats. The most commonly used format is clean verbatim, but in addition, we also offer full verbatim and edited transcription. Transcription can be made in spoken language (including umms, errs, repetition, etc.) or in standard language (no repetition, etc.). Clients also have varying demands when it comes to expletives.
Spoken is specialised in transcription formats presented below. If you have more specific needs, contact us and we will figure out a way for your project to be realised.
This format is the most common and is widely used in all disciplines.
This format is used for inspecting interaction and discourse e.g. in legal proceedings.
This type of transcription is usually used for speeches, classes and seminars.
When research is done in the interviewee’s second language, it is worth considering translated transcription. This is because by interviewing the interviewee in his/her native language, you are able to get more context or more accurate answers.
Translated transcription requires more effort, therefore the price of translated transcription is naturally higher. Price of translated transcription is defined individually for each project.
