Language Transcription Services

In order to provide our clients with an integrated solution, we have a division specializing in transcription services for audio and visual media. Normally, we provide a time-stamped transcription in the original language and then have this translated for use in legal, law enforcement or medical proceedings. Trusted Translations utilizes all the industry-standard software and has in-depth knowledge of the different formatting requirements of the end product depending on its intended use. We also provide rush services for last minute requests. We regularly work with attorney-general offices at both the state and federal levels.

From highly complex legal content to technical medical recordings, Trusted Translations has certified transcription specialists on-call to provide you with the services you need at the most affordable prices in the industry. We also provide rush transcription services to solve your time sensitive needs. As with all the services we offer, Trusted Translations adheres to strict confidentiality and quality standards.

Captioning/Subtitling Transcription Services

Transcription services are also involved in entertainment media as well as instructional content. These services often go hand-in-hand with the production of multilingual video/audio content. Once the text is transcribed, it can be captioned directly for the hard of hearing (i.e., captioning) or as a tool for those who do not understand the original audio feed’s spoken language (i.e., subtitling). It can even be used for people who prefer to see subtitles in the source language to complement the audio stream.

Trusted Translations has teams dedicated to transcribing audio content for use in final post-production and translation processes.

Transcription and Translation

When translating dialogue from audio recordings into another language, Trusted Translations first assigns native linguists to transcribe the text in the original language. A second team of native speakers of the target language is then used to translate the text. This two-step transcription/translation process helps ensure a significantly higher-quality output than simultaneous audio translation/transcription, which skips the step of transcribing the audio feed in the original language. The two-step approach is especially important when it comes to legal materials, such as court and police records, as this ensures a higher level of quality
