Transcription For Documentary Interviews
8th May 2012
"I am working on a documentary about people whose lives have been transformed by faith. I need to transcribe about 25 interviews present in my documentary. Have you handled similar work before? Most recordings contain biblical verses and sayings, and I want it to be accurate. I need a time coded transcript. Please let me know your charges. Many thanks." Julie Hoffman.
This is the gist of the mail we received from Julie. Like every documentary maker she wanted every little thing about her pet project to be perfect. When we gave her a call later that day, she was on tenterhooks and explained to us how important this project was to her. We promised her that TranscriptionStar has assuaged the fears of many a documentary maker, and always provided a perfectly perfect transcript.
We told her that we offer church sermon transcription services to prayer houses and gatherings all over the United States and were thoroughly familiar with biblical sayings. She seemed to glad and more than a little relived and requested for the completed transcripts in a weeks time.
After retrieving her file from our FTP server we set to work on the more than 30 hours of interview recordings. It contained phrases and words that most common people would never have come across in their lives. But our transcribers found it a walk in the park as they are experienced in not only documentary interview transcription services but in transcribing biblical verses as well. Our time coding team inserted time codes at 30 minute intervals, as requested by Julie Hoffman and made sure that they didn't miss a single minute.
When we mailed the completed transcript to Julie she got in touch with us within an hour and thanked us profusely, for our professionalism and timeliness.
