International Languages Services, Inc. can provide an accurate printed text of who said what during your meeting, conference, deposition, interview, or conversation in more than 125 languages We provide professional transcription from audiotape, videotape, and digital media for government agencies, law firms, corporations, and individuals.
Types of transcription offered:
Verbatim Transcript: A very precise record of every word spoken in the source language. The record includes false starts, as well as speech and grammatical errors. This service is used by government agencies for evidentiary purposes.
Edited Transcript: A polished, accurate rendition of the content of the conversation in the source language. This type of transcription ignores false starts (“um” and “ah”) and corrects speech and grammatical errors to provide a smooth flow. It is most appropriate for corporate histories and media interviews for publication.
