Who are we?

The Transcription Guy was founded in 2019 in Bolton, England.

We found that transcription of audio or videos was something our customers found painful, time consuming and costly. They were also finding it difficult to find good quality transcriptionists who were fluent in the English language and able to deliver in a timely manner.

We knew that we were capable of checking all the boxes of our customers.

Remove the pain of transcribing your audio or video files.
Reduce overhead costs of customer transcriptions.
Offer a high-quality transcription service
All staff UK-based
100% on-time guarantee

We then developed a solution that allowed our transcriptionists to delivery a high-quality transcription whilst reducing their man-hours, allowing us to improve significantly our transcription quality and lead time.

Transcription Services FAQ

Our services start at £1.00 per minute (ex VAT).

With our quick, secure and simple online checkout you can send your files across to us for transcription and make payment via several different payment methods.

We have a detailed blog post covering this topic in more detail, however a very simple explanation of this would be:

Copy Typing: Typing up documents that are hand written into a Word document, or replicating documents no longer available in an editable format.

Transcription: A typist types up a document based on audio or video files containing speech.

A verbatim transcription is a word-for-word copy of the speech, written as spoken and includes almost everything said in the audio, removing only ‘filler words’ such as um’s and ah’s, as well as false starts or repetitions.

Verbatim transcripts are ideal for record keeping or research purposes, for example in qualitative research or record keeping for HR departments.

Intelligent verbatim transcriptions essentially offer a ‘cleaned up’ version of what has been said in the audio, giving the reader the key points in a more digestible format. Speech may be paraphrased to remove unnecessary dialogue, making the meaning more succinct. 

Our article on Verbatim Vs. Intelligent Verbatim Transcription can give you more detailed information on the differences.

We accept most digital audio formats, such as:

AAC, ACT, AIFC (Compressed AIFF), AIFF, AMR, APE, AU, CAF (Apple Core Audio Format), DCT (Express Dictate, MSRS, etc.), DSP TrueSpeech, DSS , DVF (Sony recorder), DVS (Royal recorder), FLAC, OGG, M4A, MP2, MP3, MPC, MSV (Sony recorder), QCP, RA / RM (RealAudio), SHN, SPX, VOC, VOX, WAV (Including ADPCM, aLaw, GSM 6.10, PCM, and uLaw codecs) and WMA. 

We also accept direct links from YouTube or Vimeo.

If you are at all unsure, please first Contact Us before placing your order, and one of the team will be happy to help.

Transcripts are emailed to the email address specified in the order form in a Word .docx format, leaving the transcriptions fully editable.

If you require delivery in another format, please let us know by getting in contact with the team.

Yes, we are happy to sign NDAs where appropriate. 

Please attach the NDA along with your order and we will sign and return this prior to commencing work.

Our pricing is always as keen as we can make it, and therefore we do not offer discount on bulk purchases. Instead, we believe in always offering our very best price for a service that is unparalleled in quality. This offers our customers three things;

Yes, please call us on 07715 396228. 

If the line is unavailable, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as possible.

We are happy to issue invoices to eligible organisations, companies, Universities (etc.)

Private clients will not receive an invoice.

No, you can order with us without the need for an account.

The best way to receive accurate transcription of audio is to have high quality audio available. Where this isn’t possible, the quality of the completed transcript will be lower. 

Unfortunately audio cannot be suitably enhanced where recording quality is low, as the data (the sounds) have not been captured initially, and therefore we cannot improve on the audio quality that you provide to us.
