Although English is an international language that billions of people speak daily, you cannot assume any people who can understand the language can transcribe an English file. The use of English transcription services from an experienced transcription agency is highly recommended.

Audio Transcription Services

With about 1.27 billion speakers around the world, it is estimated that English has 160 dialects and a large array of different accents within primarily English speaking countries (such as the US, UK, Australia, and Canada) as well as foreign English accents. These accents and dialects are different from each other to some extent in terms of their pronunciation and vocabulary. Therefore, your project should only be in the good hands of native English transcribers who are familiar with the accents.

At GTE Media, we bring comprehensive English transcription services for various English dialects and content types from best-in-class native English transcribers in the world.


At GTE Localize, we offer four English transcription services that serve distinctive purposes

1. English Full Transcription

English full transcripts serve interaction and discourse inspection purposes such as behavioural research or legal proceedings. Thus, elements such as utterances (e.g. um, mm-hmm, and uh), filler words or grammar mistakes should not be changed or edited.

Interviewer: First, I want to ask you some questions about yourself…How many hours do spend playing computer games?
Interviewee: [Laugh]…um…I guess…um…it’s not too much. I think I play games for like…2…or…maybe 3 hours a day.

2. English Clean Transcription

Elements that do not affect the meanings of the content such as filler words, self-corrected words, and grammar mistakes will be removed or corrected. The final outcome is a clear and easy-to-read script.

English clean transcription services are used for numerous purposes such as education or speeches.

Interviewer: First, I want to ask you some questions about yourself. How many hours do spend playing computer games?
Interviewee: [Laugh] I guess it’s not too much. I think I play games for 2-3 hours a day.

3. English Transcription with Timestamping

The timestamp for each dialogue, sentence, and paragraph is added alongside the written version of the audio. The timestamps help you save time when playing back a specific part of an audio or video or later using the script for doing captioning.

For example:

[02:13] Interviewer: First, I want to ask you some questions about yourself. How many hours do spend playing computer games?
[02:51] Interviewee: [Laugh] I guess it’s not too much. I think I play games for 2-3 hours a day.

4. English Summary Transcription Services

Our transcribers read the full scripts and pick out some key points to make a shorter and well-structured summary. The summary length is of your choice.

English summarized transcript is useful when you need to understand the overview of a video, a conference, or education materials.


The English language has a huge number of dialects in different countries:

Locations Number of Dialects
The UK 29 different ones (not including dialects from Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Man, or the Channel Islands)
The US 27 distinct dialects
Ireland 13 distinct dialects
Australia 9 distinct dialects
India 14 distinct dialects
