I used UK transcription for processing data from an academic research project on the recommendation of a colleague. We had lots of recorded interviews and focus groups and it was great to be able to use UK Transcription for processing this data.
- Dr Mary Stevens, University College London
The quality of this transcript is first class; congratulations to the audio-typist who transcribed quite technical financial language with great accuracy and with no 'unclears' in the text.
- Paul Nicholson, Thomson Reuters
I was amazed at the speed of return of the transcripts and how well presented they were. I am looking forward to working with them again.
- Noelle Keating,
Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development
Thank you, I am very impressed, the transcriber has done a great job with paragraphs and punctuation, and also at intelligently guessing the sense, the technical vocabulary, and the proper names, with queries given a helpful temporal index in case I want to double-check them. But in fact there are literally no errors for me to fix.
- University of Cambridge
As an evidence based charity, we undertake a large amount of research to support our work. Their prices were incredibly competitive, and the transcriptions were right on time, great quality (particularly given quiet sound recordings, with lots of background noise) and hassle-free.
- Lucy Hawkins, National Literacy Trust
WOW, I am so impressed, from the first phone call I made I have had nothing but helpful and timely communications with UK Transcription. I have used transcription companies before but UK Transcription is so far better than the others. I will definitely be doing more work with them and would highly recommend! Thank you UK Transcription team!
