Television Transcription Services We Offer
We offer a host of services which are incredibly beneficial to our clients while ensuring we stick to the deadlines. Over our 16 years of experience, we have worked on a variety of television content, ranging from educational videos to soap operas, and have streamlined our services to suit the requirements of our international clients. We understand the nuances of transcription and our team of transcriptionists have the required skills to deliver at the highest platform. Our television series transcription services cover a wide area of television programming, and include the following services -
Educational Show Transcription
Educational shows are harder to transcribe as compared to other tv shows, especially because they deal with facts and figures which unless transcribed properly can lead your entire post-production astray. Our television transcription for educational content covers a variety of different educational programming including documentaries, news programs, reality shows, children's educational programs, etc.
Entertainment Television Transcription
Entertainment shows make up the bulk of our work and require strict adherence to deadlines since they follow a seasonal airing routine. This means you need access to high-quality transcripts as soon as possible. Our television series transcription services cover both your captioning and transcription needs and cover a wide variety of entertainment programs such as daily sitcoms, dramas, reality shows, game shows, TV movies, etc.
Sports Television Transcription
Transcripts for sports shows usually contain a lot of mistakes because service providers either run it through software or do not have experienced resources working on them. Sports shows have a large amount of background noise and multiple voice overlays, all of which can be removed easily by our experienced transcriptionists. Over services include live sports transcripts delivered on the same day, recorded events transcription, and highlights transcription.
News Broadcast Transcription
News programming needs transcription to save for a future date and is a great way to release the footage and the transcript early to your sources. Since time is of the essence in this process, we ensure we deliver all your transcripts in as short a time as possible. We cover both general analysis and headlines, as well as lengthy debates.
Television Recordings and Interview Transcription
Most interviews and television recordings need a transcript to be generated as soon as possible in order to give it to the publicist of the celebrity or person who was interviewed. We provide high-quality transcripts for stand-alone interviews, documentaries, etc.
Reality Show Transcription
Reality shows are all the rage nowadays and are one of the main TRP earners for television broadcasters around the world. Our experienced transcriptionists can easily convert all the audible parts of the reality show into an easy-to-read transcript while identifying each speaker. We can also add brief descriptions of the scene if required.
Talk Show Transcription
While most talk shows stick to a pre-defined pattern, they also involve multiple guests and a host conversing with each other. Unlike other TV shows, the format is quite casual and there is heavy use of slang. Once again our team of transcriptionists leverages their prowess to transcribe each and every element of the talk show while retaining the slang vocabulary.
Television Transcription Services - Our Key Differentiators
As a premier television transcription company, we believe that a high-quality, perfect transcript can serve you not only in post-production and distribution but also over your requirements for subtitles, extras, etc. Our team consists of exceptional talent in the field of transcription and our ability to support multiple clients across the world at the same time without ever dropping the ball is a big reason why we have so many repeat clients. Some of the main reasons which set us apart from our competitors include -
Support for Post-production Transcription
Ask any broadcaster and they will tell you that the post-production stage is one of the most nerve-wracking things about getting a show on TV. There are different cuts that need to get approval from the publishers and the broadcasters, and they need entire show transcripts so that they can skim through the dialogs lists consisting of dialogue IDs, speaker IDs, and specific time codes.
We ensure that the final post-production transcript contains all these details and more, such as scene breakdowns, setup descriptions, act breaks, etc. With our experience and knowledge of this domain, we ensure most of the backend work is taken care of, ensuring a much smoother post-production process.
Transcription of Raw File Footage
When the final edits are being made to a television show, they need to skim through the raw footage continuously so they do not miss out on an important part. Such edits are made easy with a solid transcript, as they can then easily search for the key phrases or context and then work on the final cut. We transcribe such raw footage with ease, helping you edit the tv show in a much better way. Our raw footage transcription techniques make use of proprietary transcription templates which further make it easy for you to work on the final edit as well.
Support for Subtitling and Closed-captioning
Subtitles and closed-captions today are all the more important as most publishers and broadcasters try to reach out to the maximum number of people and attract a wider audience from multiple countries. Adding subtitles or closed-captions for your videos can take them to the next level, opening up new areas for content discovery and audience relations which you never enjoyed before.
As your chosen television transcription service provider we can work on extremely accurate subtitles and captions for your tv content, and also translate the same into multiple languages such as Russian, German, etc.
