Formatting and verbatim transcription

Port13bWhether you choose to use our own in-house templates or prefer us to work with your university’s formatting guides, you can be assured that our work is always professionally presented and consistent both in terms of layout and linguistics. All our work is thoroughly proofread and we can provide either strict verbatim, intelligent verbatim or ‘clean transcripts’ as necessary. If you require time stamps or line numbers for ease of reference, this is not a problem and we are experienced in dealing with multi-speaker focus groups and a range of accents.

Typically, our academic work includes the following:

  • PhD transcription work
  • Focus group transcription
  • Undergraduate transcription
  • Postgraduate transcription
  • Conference transcription
  • Interview transcription
  • Lecture transcription
  • Transcription of seminars and workshops


From focus group transcription to PhD transcription, we understand the importance of data protection and the necessity that your files remain confidential. We treat all sound files and audio transcripts with the utmost confidentiality and all our transcriptionists have signed a non-disclosure agreement.
