What is Transcription?

web localizations

Transcription can take one of two forms as described below:

  • Straight Transcription:  through this service, what is said (in whatever language) is written down, word for word. So if it is spoken in Arabic, a transcriber will write word for word what is said, in this case in Arabic.
  • Transcription & Translation: through this service, a transcriber has two options:

a) to write down word for word what is said (as per above) and then translate the text;

b) translate the recording directly therefore omitting the original language that is used.

Creative Word offer both services depending on if you require the original language transcription or not.
