Transcription Service

Welcome to our transcription service

We transcribe audio and video at a highly competitive rate. Currently we only transcribe English and Afrikaans audio and video files. We pride ourselves on our high level of client service, speed, accuracy, cost efficiency and data security.

Our transcription service rates are calculated per audio or video minute. An audio minute is one minute of recording. Use the formula in the sidebar to calculate what the approximate cost of transcribing your audio/video file will be.
