Media Transcription

Transcribing media content makes your audio and video easier to understand, simplifying the editing process and boosting its online visibility. With London Translations’ expert media transcription service, your message and stories can reach a wider audience.

What is media transcription?

Media transcription is the process converting the spoken words from audio-visual content into text. Anything can be transcribed, from TV shows or movies, to transcripts for YouTube videos or radio programmes, as well as podcasts and video games.

Here at London Translations, we are aware of just how much time and effort goes into media projects of all forms. Consequently, we do everything we can to make sure our media transcription service preserves the quality of every piece of content we transcribe.

Our dedicated media transcription team has a wealth of experience in processing audio files for a wide range of top media companies and individuals, including radio stations, media agencies and PR agents. During the transcription process, we make a conscious effort to retain the emotive and descriptive power of each project. We can also differentiate between different dramatic techniques, such as capturing pauses or emotional moments within dialogue, and will reflect this is in the finished transcript in order to aid the editing process.

As well as accessibility and editorial benefits, media transcription can also be advantageous for SEO purposes. Accurate transcription of your audio or video content enables search engines to index them—something that captions alone cannot achieve—and in turn give your content greater online visibility.

Who can benefit from media transcription?

Although voice recognition software has improved markedly in recent times, and is increasingly being used for transcription purposes, it still makes basic mistakes and cannot be relied upon for accurate transcriptions. This makes human transcription services as important as ever for those in the media.

Many media companies or production houses simply do not have the time to transcribe all of their video or audio content, which is another reason why enlisting a media transcription service is so useful. By taking the task of transcribing off your hands, you are free to dedicate your time to more pressing projects. You don’t have to worry about the volume of content you send to us either—our team will work around the clock to make sure that transcripts are ready in time.

Whether you are an individual wanting subtitles for a YouTube video, or a radio station needing a transcript of a broadcast, having an accurate transcription is vital, as well as descriptions of what is happening on-screen. From enabling your video and audio content to reach as wide an audience as possible, or improving the accessibility of your content for the hard of hearing, as well as assisting with the editing process and making your content more visible online, media transcription can be incredibly beneficial for all types of projects.
