Verbatim Transcription Services

Isabel’s Typing Services offer two types of transcription service, “Unabridged Verbatim” and “Intelligent Verbatim”. The most common style used for interview transcription services and focus group transcription services is intelligent verbatim. However, we can accommodate for any variations of these two styles as per your request.

Intelligent Verbatim Transcription

Intelligent verbatim ensures a full, accurate transcript, but omits all the ‘ums’, ‘ahs’, repetitions, pauses and verbal habits such as excessive use of ‘you know what I mean’ and ‘kind of’ unless this is obviously relevant to the content of the audio. In effect, we take out the clutter that has no relevance to the conversation and adds nothing to the context of the transcript.

We can even clean up the transcript further by excluding unfinished sentences, contractions and even correct the grammar. We leave the rest exactly as spoken.

Unabridged Verbatim Transcription

The unabridged verbatim transcription service offers a transcript of absolutely everything said on a recording. Perfect for interviews for legal purposes or for university qualitative analysis. Unabridged Verbatim includes every repetition, ‘ums’, ‘ahs’, ‘uh-huh’ and instances where people drift off in mid comment with no obvious end to the sentence. We will also include all expressions of emotion such as laughter, crying and outbursts.

The different speakers speech styles, dialects and accent patterns will also be included where possible. Added emphasis, such as a shout, cough, or banging on the desk, as well as examples of speakers over stressing a word can also be included in the transcript. This provides the reader with as much information as possible and relates in words what was being said non-verbally as well as the conversational style of the recording.

We aim to provide a fast, friendly and affordable transcription service where the needs of our clients come first and are always met. If you have any questions about or verbatim transcription service, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
