CONFERENCE, SEMINAR & DEBATE TRANSCRIPTION SERVICES
Conference transcription services are one of our specialities with experience gained over many years of transcribing a wide variety of corporate events, including lectures, presentations, debates, speeches, breakout sessions, keynote speakers, round table discussions, roadshows, plenary sessions, workshops, seminars and Q&A sessions.
Whatever your length of conference, our experienced conference transcribers can provide a professional, accurate and reliable transcription service for a variety of digital audio and video formats, as well as audio tapes and minidisc transcription. Conferences transmitted as podcasts or webcasts can also be transcribed. We are committed to meeting any post-conference deadlines for prompt turnaround of transcripts to ensure that you are able to produce any delegate packs or conference proceedings within a reasonable timeframe.
Over the years, we have transcribed conferences on a wide variety of topics, including Government and local authority conferences, trade union events, arts and leisure industry seminars, European Commission and panel debates, conferences on refugee crises, policy discussions, marketing workshops, call centre conferences, plus conferences for specialist industries (such as transport, energy, environment), strategy roadshows and academic research conferences, to name but a few. We are pleased to offer a discounted conference transcription service for charities and universities for all digitally recorded conferences.
Please view our Guidelines and Equipment pages which we hope will answer any specific queries you may have about setting up your recordings and facilitating the event. Having spent time and money planning for an event such as this, it's vital to ensure that the recording is of a very high standard in order to capture all the speakers and any other sessions. Most conference venues will be happy to recommend audio visual companies who can take care of this for you, or they may have their own in-house arrangements. If you have a choice, we would strongly recommend choosing a digital recording. This produces a high quality recording which in turn results in reduced transcription costs and turnaround times. Take a look at our comparison between digital and analogue recordings.
That's what we can provide. What we need from you as conference organisers and clients is a list of speakers, an agenda so we can see the speaker order, the title of their presentation and a list of delegates. The latter helps enormously in transcribing Q&A sessions and ensures we have the correct spelling of names and companies.
covers a specialised area with its own terminology and keywords,
together with brand names, companies, scientific terms and individuals
which may only be obvious to anyone inside the industry or organisation.
It helps if clients can provide some of the keywords, but we have the
experience to meticulously research any specific topic to ensure the
minimum of queries.
ALL RECORDINGS are listened to a second time, Internet research is carried out to identify names or terminology, and transcripts proofread by the Director, Irene Boston. There is no extra charge for this service. Not all transcription companies do this, some don't even proofread, so make sure you ask the right questions before choosing a service.
As conferences can be quite lengthy, resulting in a substantial length of recording, we recommend that you contact us as early as possible before the event. This will allow us to reserve space for you in our schedule. Waiting until the conference is completed, and then trying to find an experienced transcriber at short notice to quickly turnaround a day or week long conference could be difficult. Most professional transcription companies have a long list of regular customers and to suddenly find a large block of free space can be difficult. So book your transcription company in advance, the same way you would the venue or speakers.
We provide a free File Upload service for all digital recordings via our website to ensure prompt delivery to our transcription team. We can also download your audio sound files directly from your websiter, or you can post CDs directly to us but that will obviously introduce delays in starting on the transcription. Should your conference have been recorded on standard audio tapes or minidiscs, we can still provide an audio transcription service. Where possible, we always convert any minidisc or analogue recordings into digital format, which cuts out on repeated stops and starts and increased wear on precious original recordings. Subsequently, we can also provide you with that digital re-recording free of charge, provided the originals are clearly audible.
Our default transcript style is Intelligent Verbatim as that is the most cost effective method of transcription. Please read our definitions of Complete Verbatim, Intelligent Verbatim and Edited Transcript to choose which format is most suitable for your needs. We have a standard script style layout for all conferences but we are also happy to work in your house style to save you reformatting work. As with all our transcriptions, we provide a Transcript Code on each document to signify areas which are inaudible or unclear.
We hope this provides you with a thorough overview of our specialist conference transcription services. Feel free to call (01485 543746) or email us for a detailed quote and turnaround times based on our current schedule, or browse our Overview or FAQ pages. We believe our Testimonials page speaks for itself.
