Using Malay transcription services is an effective way to bring you accurate transcripts in the Malay languages for various purposes.

Audio Transcription Services

The Malay language has numerous dialects: Bahasa Malaysia, Sarawakian, Terengganuan, and Kelantanese to name a few. Due to the differences in the sound systems, vocabulary and locations of each dialect, it is highly recommended that you only let professional native Malay transcribers handle your Malay transcription projects.

GTE Media is a media localization agency based in Southeast Asia. With years of experience in the localization industry, we know how to find the best Malay transcribers at the most value-for-money rate for your projects. We guarantee to bring you best-in-class Malay transcription services for all Malay accents.


GTE Media provides 4 transcription services that serve different purposes.

1. Malay Full Transcription

We listen to your audio or video which is spoken in the Malay language, then write down exactly what we hear, even the utterances, and grammar mistakes.

No changes or corrections should be made during this process because this service is for interaction and discourse inspection purposes such as behavioural research or legal proceedings.

2. Malay Clean Transcription

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

Malay Clean Transcription service is suitable for various purposes including education or speeches.

3. Malay Transcription with Timestamping

For this service, our transcribers not only turn spoken audio into written words but also insert the timestamps at the beginning of a sentence or paragraph.

Malay transcripts with timestamps are useful when you need to playback a specific part of an audio or video.

4. Malay Summary Transcription Services

We create a summarized version of your Malay audio for your specific purposes. The full transcript is shortened to the length of your choice (a short paragraph, a page, etc.) and make sure all the key points are included.

We recommend this service when you only need to understand the overview of a video, a conference, or education materials.
