Transcription services basically involve the conversion of an audio feed to text. These services are often a necessary element involved with the production of any multilingual video/audio content. One the text is transcribed, it can be captioned directly for the hearing impaired or as a tool for those who do not understand the original audio feed’s spoken version of the language or those who prefer to see subtitles in the source language to complement the audio stream.
This transcribed material may also be used as the basis for subsequent translations into different languages. Crystal Translations has teams dedicated to transcribing audio content for use in the final post-production and translation process.
Transcription and Translation
When translating dialogue from audio recordings into another language, Crystal Translations first assigns native linguists to transcribe the text in the original language. A second team of native speakers of the target language is then used to translate the text. This two-phase transcription/translation process helps ensure a significantly higher-quality output than simultaneous audio translation/transcription, which skips the step of transcribing the audio feed to the original language. The two-phase approach is especially important for legal materials such as court and police records, as it ensures a higher level of quality.
All Type of Transcriptions
Our goal at Crystal Translations is to provide transcription service of all types and in all languages to provide you with a one-stop solution for all your transcription needs.
