Types of Transcriptions

At The Language Room we offer two types of transcriptions: verbatim and non-verbatim.

What are Verbatim Transcriptions?

The verbatim version is word-for-word, including any stutters, pauses, repetitions and
hesitations from the original recording. Verbatim transcriptions are the closest type of
transcription, but they are also the most time-consuming to produce and not necessary what
you need. This type of transcription is perfect for creating subtitles for videos or captions for

What are Non-Verbatim Transcriptions?

The non-verbatim version is a natural language summary of the content excluding any
hesitations (hmm, um, er, etc.), repetitions, stutters from the recording. Non-verbatim
transcripts are not as detailed as verbatim transcripts but can be easier to read and still
convey the same message. This type of transcript may omit some words or phrases from the
original recording but maintains its meaning accurately enough for most purposes such as
research papers or product reviews.

Transcription case study:

Bordeaux Hospital

In June 2017, Bordeaux Hospital (France), contacted us to have a 44 minutes and 35 seconds recording transcribed in English and translated into French. The recording was a meeting involving 7 people from the UK, Australia and the United States as part of a medical and healthcare study.

Before starting the project, we requested that the client provide the topic, along with any other information that could be useful for the typist. We assessed the client’s needs (i.e. timecodes, verbatim, etc.) and agreed on the deadline. Careful attention to detail was required as the recording concerned a study on surgery and MDT for patients suffering from rectal cancer.

A first typist with experience in medicine created the initial draft transcription. We then passed this to a second experienced typist to ensure that everything was included and the transcription was accurate. The end result was a high-quality and accurate finished transcription of 9,986 words in total, and a perfectly readable French translation.
