What our customers are saying


At a Glance: Transcription

A transcriptionist converts audio recordings, handwritten notes, or other communications into typed documents, with a focus on both efficiency and accuracy. As well as exceptional typing skills, a transcriptionist has a keen ear, an eye for detail, and a firm grasp of the language. Engaging the services of a professional can save you time and hassle on a variety of projects.
Within the world of transcription, there are several specialties. Medical transcription entails converting physicians’ voice recordings or handwritten notes into typed reports; doing so requires knowledge of medical and pharmaceutical terminology. Likewise, legal transcriptionists, who convert recordings of depositions and hearings, need to be versed in legalese. Other transcriptionists may be especially skilled in multiple-speaker recordings, such as those from a recorded conference or roundtable, or in creating documents from non-audio media such as PowerPoint presentations. The professional transcriptionists on Upwork can provide you with verbatim documents or ready-to-read, edited documents, depending on your needs. Just as important, they can proofread the documents for accuracy and flag any queries.
