Here at Capital Captions our aim is to provide our clients with fast and accurate business transcription services. In today’s blog we will be finding out what it takes to get the best out of your transcription services so you don’t end up overspending needlessly.
In general, business transcription can cover anything from transcribing a conference call, a Webinar, a Podcast or any other type of audio recording. Transcribed documents come in very handy as they can be re-purposed in PDF documents, workbooks or E-books depending on what the client would like to achieve from the transcription.
An important factor to consider when recording your interview, press conference or media announcement is recording surroundings. One of the most important elements to this is trying to minimise background noise. A transcriptionist’s worst nightmare! Even with a clear sounding voice, having loud background noise will always make it very difficult to understand and transcribe speech.
Type of Transcription Required
Be sure to keep in mind what type of transcription you require. Transcription comes in many forms, from Verbatim transcription and Intelligent Verbatim to time-coded transcription. Making sure you select the correct format for your transcription in order to save lots of time and money in the long run.
Whilst the standard transcription services prices are based on one or two speakers, it is important to bear in mind that speakers who often over-speak over other speakers. Transcriptions with over speaking or multiple speakers may have compromised quality and can also cost more.
When you are looking into sourcing a transcription company one of the most important aspects is the companies location. Most transcription companies will offer different turnaround times and services based on price. What you have to be aware of is where the company is based, as for multinational companies, this may determine the hours that they can work on your recording.
Plan Ahead to Avoid a Rush
Urgency costs money! Therefore, the more urgent your transcription requirement is, the quicker turnover time you require, the costlier it will be. Transcription companies calculate the cost of transcription based on complexity of work, length of work and turnaround times required. To avoid paying for urgent transcription work unnecessarily, always plan ahead. If you know you require transcription that research project that’s due in two weeks and the audio is ready, don’t wait until the last minute to contact a transcription company.
