Foreign Language Transcription

Net Transcripts can transcribe most recordings, regardless of the language(s) being spoken. Our Foreign Language Transcription service option provides our customers with a transcript that is typed in the language(s) spoken during the recording.

For example, if a recording is spoken in Spanish, you will receive a transcript typed in Spanish only.

Foreign Language Transcription with Translation

In addition to transcribing spoken foreign languages, Net Transcripts can also translate them into English. Given the exacting nature of verbatim translation, the language spoken must first be transcribed in able to produce an accurate, verbatim translation. Our Foreign Language Transcription with Translation option therefore produces a two-column document containing both languages -- the language typed as spoken, along with its translation into English.

For example, if a recording is spoken in Spanish, you will receive a transcript with the Spanish typed as spoken in the left-hand column, and its translation into English mirrored alongside in the right-hand column.

Foreign Language Interpretation

To provide the best value to our customers, Net Transcripts can also Interpret a recording into English. This service option produces a document typed in English only, regardless of the language spoken. Our Foreign Language Interpretation option is generally selected as a cost effective option when an agency wants a simple translation into English, generally for informational purposes. This service option does not contain a transcription of the language as spoken.

For example, if a recording is spoken in Spanish, you will receive a transcript typed in English only.
