Video Transcription Expertise
In terms of our video transcription services, we specialise in sectors including:
- And more…
Our video transcriptionists are required to have at least two years experience working within transcription, alongside two years experience within their chosen specialism.
In addition, we hire writers who are fluent in their transcription language and who possess high levels of accuracy in spelling, punctuation and grammar. All typing work carried out is proofread by the transcriptionist prior to delivery and we perform regular spot checks and feedback as and when required to ensure ongoing development. Where possible, we aim to allocate work to one transcriptionist in order to ensure writing consistency. We also highly value client feedback and on request, can allocate a dedicated video transcriptionist to take on all ongoing work where possible.
Video Transcription for Subtitling and Closed Captioning Purposes
At Capital Captions, we specialise in transcription as well as high quality closed captioning and subtitling services. Before a video can be subtitled in any language, there first needs to be a transcript available to work with. In addition, to produce the highest quality captioning, transcription and subtitle formatting need to work seamlessly together.
We can work with client transcripts to create subtitles, but recommend our services for the best results. For closed captioning, there are more requirements than just the inclusion of speech. For this reason, our video transcriptionists are experienced and trained to include sound effects, speaker identifications and vocalisations in their writing.
Capital Captions provide foreign video transcription services to clients worldwide, covering the following languages:
- French video transcription
- German video transcription
- Italian video transcription
- Dutch video transcription
- Spanish video transcription
- Chinese video transcription
- Portuguese video transcription
- And more…

Receipt and Delivery of Video Files
We work with large video files on a regular basis and are therefore happy to accept media via a range of different methods.
Because we want to make things as simple as possible for our clients, our website allows direct video upload to our dedicated DropBox. DropBox is a highly secure FTP site, and due to its widespread use, is easy to access for most clients, even via mobile apps!
For customers who prefer to send video files by other methods, we accept links to online video (including YouTube or Vimeo), WeTransfer or YouSendIt and can also work with traditional hard copies of USB sticks, discs, DVDs or Blu-Ray. We can accept video files via email but do not recommend this method for large files.
