Transcription Transcription

We put the spoken word into writing for you, no matter AI or not, no matter the language or what standards you require.

You send us your audio or video recordings and we transcribe them for you. We’ll follow the transcription standards, data protection requirements and parameters we’ve discussed together precisely.

Whether it’s a one-off interview session or a major ongoing project – we’ll make a plan together with you. Based on the available turnaround time, your quality requirements or your budget, we will be happy to discuss the possibility of using artificial intelligence (AI) for your project.


You decide which transcription guidelines we use, from simple direct typing to detailed Dresing and Pehl or GAT transcription. We can also highlight every third word in red, if you wish.

Large volumes are handled by several team members simultaneously. This way we achieve not only precision and reliability, but we also keep to deadlines, even the tightest ones.

Strong dialects, specialist topics and background noise only serve to pique our interest. Your transcription is carried out by members of our freelance team who really know their stuff. Our transcriptionists work with current transcription software (eg F4) in order to guarantee compatibility with your data analysis software (eg MAXQDA).

Putting “Unclear” dents our pride as transcribers. Your transcription is checked over by us a second, third and fourth time so we can make out unclear passages. Our quality management makes this possible.

With our bilingual transcriptions from one language directly into another you get two services in one – transcription and, at the same time, translation. This way you save time and money.

Your data is safe with us. Send your files securely via our HiDrive or SFTP server, a VPN client or your favoured means of data transfer.
