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

Audio Transcription Services

The Thai language has numerous dialects such as Central Thai, Northern Thai, and Southern Thai. Due to the differences in the sound systems and vocabulary of these dialects, only professional Thai transcribers who are familiar with different accents should be assigned for your project. Otherwise, the accuracy and consistency of the transcripts can not be guaranteed.

As a professional media localization agency in Asia, GTE Media has a pool of best experienced native Thai transcribers who bring you quality Thai transcription services at a value-for-money rate.


GTE Media provides a variety of Thai transcription services to meet your diverse requests for media localization.

1. Thai Full Transcription

Our transcribers listen to the source video/audio in the Thai language and type down exactly what they hear, including utterances (such as um, mm-hmm, and uh), background noise, grammar mistakes, etc. Even if the speakers make mistakes in grammar, transcribers have to keep the original sentences without changing or editing anything.

Thai Full Transcription is suitable for interaction and discourse inspection purposes such as behavioural research or legal proceedings.

2. Thai Clean Transcription

When reviewing the full transcripts, our transcribers remove self-corrected words or filler words from the transcripts as well as correct grammar mistakes.

Clean Transcription for the Thai language can be used for numerous purposes such as education or speeches.

3. Thai Transcription with Timestamping

Alongside writing down the spoken version of your Thai video/audio, our transcribers insert timestamps at the beginning of a sentence, dialogue or paragraph.

This service is useful for playing back a specific part of an audio or video.

4. Thai Summary Transcription Services

We convert your long full transcript into a shorter and well-structured version at the length of your choices. The summary must include all the key points of the full script.

This service is used when you only need to understand the overview of a video, a conference, or education materials.


There are many ways to classify Thai dialects (based on the differences in grammar, accent, phoneme, etc.). Below are some major Thai dialects that we can cover:

Thai Dialects Locations
Central Plains Thai
  • Provines in the vicinity of Bangkok, Trat, Chanthaburi, Sa Kaeo, Prachinburi, Chachoengsao, etc.
Capital Core Thai
  • The core area of the Phra Nakhon side of Bangkok, Mueang Paet Riu, Phanom Sarakham, most upper parts of Chonburi Province, etc.
Upper Central Thai
  • Sukhothai, Phitsanulok, Kamphaeng Phet, Phetchabun and part of Uttaradit Province, Uthai Thani, Nakhon Sawan, etc.

If your transcribers are not familiar with the Thai dialects in your source video/audio, mistakes can be easily made. Thus, you should carefully choose the transcribers who are familiar with the source dialects.

Step 1: Receive files and confirm details

When receiving the source audio or video from you, our team starts analyzing the file to understand your project and requirements better. We will then give you a quotation with the rates and expected deadlines. Once you agree with the quotation, we prepare resources to start the project.

Step 2: Prepare to transcribe

Based on the type of services you choose as well as the dialects and content of the source file, we find the most competent native Thai transcribers to work on your project. Before being able to work on the file, transcribers are required to research the file and related information about the project.

Step 3: Transcribe the files

Our team of Thai transcribers listen and write down what they hear from the audio or video. If you choose Thai transcriptions services with timestamps, our transcribers will perform an extra step of adding the timestamp for each sentence or paragraph.

Step 4: Edit the transcription

A team of editors will review the transcribed file from step 3. This step is to eliminate possible errors to give you an error-free transcript.

Step 5: Export and deliver the final product

After exporting the transcript into the format you requested, our team deliver the final product to you.
