Transcription Services for Media
The journalism and reporting sector revolves around up to date information, and with that comes urgency. Journalists and writers for media take on regular work that requires transcription. Within the media sector, transcription services save time, help professionals to meet deadlines and allow accurate referencing for articles and press releases. Capital Captions work regularly with companies and individuals in the media sector.
We work with transcriptionists both in the UK and internationally and provide 24 hour typing services in order to help our clients meet their deadlines. Our transcription services for media include typing out of podcasts, videos, news reports, radio and television broadcasts, interviews, conferences, telephone calls and the like. We work in a number of styles but typically within the journalism sector, our transcripts are intelligent verbatim or verbatim.
Translation Services for Media
Capital Captions employee some of the best translators in the industry. We work alongside our professional translators to offer French, German, Greek, Spanish, Italian and other foreign languages. Our approach to audio and video translation for media is to first provide a foreign transcription service with subsequent document translation. This allows for the highest level of accuracy in the final translation. However, we do also have an option to use translation services direct from audio to text.
Subtitling and Closed Caption Services
In the media industry, accessibility is key. For online and television news coverage and reporting to be available to all audiences, closed captioning is a must. Within broadcast, closed captioning is a legal requirement and overseen by Ofcom. Regulations for video on demand subtitling are fast coming into place following the ‘Subtitle It!’ campaign. It should be fairly safe to assume that online video isn’t far behind.
Adding subtitles to online video greatly increases viewing potential as applying text to video promotes indexing by search engines such as Google. There are so many benefits to using subtitling and closed captioning services for media online. Many companies such as YouTube and Facebook allow automated subtitles for videos. However, with quality being significantly reduced, many viewers are potentially lost.
Capital Captions work with subtitlers and closed caption writers who are flexible and able to work with a range of formats. We are able to add subtitles to YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, broadcast, television and online videos in order to help you attract a greater audience. Like our translation and transcription services, our subtitling services are fast, accurate and great value for money.
