- Easily edit and reuse transcribed content for other purposes such as marketing or further research.
- Help your audience do a quick search for a specific piece of information.
Our Transcription Services
To provide you with the most suitable solutions for your audio and video transcription needs, GTE Media offers 4 types of transcription services for different purposes.
With Full Transcription (also called Strict Verbatim Transcription), we listen and write down exactly what we hear, without making any edits. All spoken words, background noise, utterances (“uh”, “mm-hmm”, “you know”, etc.) or grammar mistakes are transcribed in written format.
We recommend using full transcription for interaction and discourse inspection purposes such as behavioural research or legal proceedings.
After writing down the full transcription, GTE Media’s transcribers remove all filler words, false starts, self-corrected words or half-sentences and edit grammar mistakes. A clean verbatim transcript will only capture relevant spoken words.
With the end result is clean and easy-to-read, clean verbatim transcription is the most widely used for all purposes, especially for education or speeches.
With a team of experienced talents, GTE Media gives you a precise summary or outline of a transcript of any length. We can transform a lengthy transcript into a short, well-structured summary with significant content such as key concepts, implementation summary, concluding proposals, etc.
Summary Transcription is useful to give your end-users an overview of a conference, a podcast, a video or education materials.
Transcription with timestamping
Along with writing down spoken words and sounds, our transcribers insert timestamps at the beginning of a dialogue or a paragraph. Our standard format for timestamps is [HH:MM:SS] with HH, MM, SS are hours, minutes, and seconds where the spoken words start.
Transcription with timestamps is commonly used for legal dispositions, market research or long audio/video, making it easy to playback a specific part.
