Why should you use Khmer transcription services from an experienced transcription agency? The reason is actually quite simple.

Audio Transcription Services

The Khmer language has numerous dialects such as Northern Khmer, Western Khmer, or Phnom Penh Khmer. These dialects are different from each other to some extent in terms of their sound systems and vocabulary as well as locations. Thus, to guarantee the accuracy of the transcripts, you should only let qualified native KHMER transcribers who have insights into the dialect handle your Khmer transcription services.

At GTE Media, we have a huge pool of native Khmer transcribers who have long experience in transcribing Khmer audio and video in different dialects, guaranteeing to bring you best-in-class Khmer transcripts at a competitive rate.


GTE Media offer 4 transcription services to meet your diverse demands.

1. Khmer Full Transcription

We listen to your Khmer audio or video, then write down exactly what we hear, without making any changes or edits. We keep all the utterances (e.g. um, mm-hmm, and uh), grammar mistakes, background noise, etc.

You should use Khmer Full Transcription for interaction and discourse inspection purposes such as behavioural research or legal proceedings.

2. Khmer Clean Transcription

Our transcribers review the full Khmer transcript they have transcribed and remove filler words, self-corrected words from the transcript and correct grammar mistakes.

Khmer Clean Transcription can be used for numerous purposes such as education or speeches.

3. Khmer Transcription with Timestamping

Besides writing down spoken words in your Khmer audio, our transcribers also insert timestamps at the beginning of dialogues or paragraphs.

Khmer transcription with Timestamping is useful for playing back a specific part of an audio or video.

4. Khmer Summary Transcription Services

We create a summarized version of your Khmer audio for your specific purposes. We convert the full transcript into short and a well-structured summary with key points at the length of your choice.

Khmer Summary Transcription should be used in case you only need to understand the overview of a video, a conference, or education materials.
