Ournon-verbatim transriberswill provide a basic overview ofyour conversation
Language Linx is your one stop shop for all audio, digital and video transcription, if you only require basic transcription, we offer a range of non-verbatim transcription services where only essential points and ordinary content is transcribed.
Useful when only a basic summary or overview of a conversation, meeting or recording is needed. Only the core information is transcribed with our transcribers typically listening to your file just a few times to capture the essence of what it’s about. Similar to draft transcription, summary transcription can be handy when you are limited by time constraints and need an immediate transcription of your conversation.
It’s important to note that we never consider summary transcriptions to be a cheap alternative to other types of transcription as they simply fulfil a need where high level content and accuracy is not an absolute requirement or to provide a stop gap to a more detailed transcription.
More detailed than summary transcription, we will transcribe the core or backbone of what has been said without making any changes to style, grammar or referencing the way in which words have been expressed. For e.g. a typical basic transcription may read as follows:
Full, verbatim transcript
I went to see my doctor Mr Smith, erm, I think it was last Friday. He said (cough) (surprised tone) I should come back to see him again (sneeze), erm let’s see, in a fortnight for the results of my blood test. Then I was called, I was called by the nurse the following Friday who said they’d got my results back early and that they needed to see me (pause) right, right away.

The transcript is edited for smoothness, clarity and grammatical accuracy. Our transcribers edit your material as they go along, making any necessary grammatical corrections, eliminating any utterances, interruptions, pauses, slang or emotional inflections. This ensures that your end transcript is free of any glitches, unnecessary details or misleading comments, providing the overall gist of the recording.
