Our Transcription Services

Our UK transcription professionals are based in the United Kingdom and can understand the accents that are common throughout the country. We have no problem understanding different accents and dialects. Because of this, our UK transcription service is extremely accurate. Native English speakers understand all the different nuances of the language and can deliver great results.

How Our Transcription Service Can Help You

Whilst a company’s in-house team can prepare business transcripts, they won’t be able to match the speed, efficiency and eye for detail like the trained transcriptionists at Alphabet. Our impeccable accuracy, cost-effectiveness and dedication to creating correct copy makes us one of the leading transcription services providers in the UK.

Our transcription services are trusted by some of the largest companies and organisations in the UK and worldwide. Why settle for less when you can choose the best transcription services available? Our client testimonials speak volumes.

Full Verbatim Transcription

Our team can carry out full verbatim transcription. This is where we transcribe word-for-word what has been spoken. We include “filler words” in our transcription documents like “um” and “err”. We will also transcribe incomplete sentences, false starts, stutters and stammers, along with sounds of coughing or laughing.

Intelligent Transcription

Our team can also transcribe in our intelligent format. Think of this as a filter. Our focus here is to concentrate on the meaning of what is being said rather than exact word-for-word duplication of what has been spoken.

Client Testimonials

Manager Chatham House

“I’ve come back to try a second couple of transcripts as the first one we received back was about as near to perfect as you could get. This compared incredibly favourably with another service which sent us back a transcript riddled with the most appalling errors.”

Chatham House
Communications Manager Guernsey

“We’ve utilised the services of Alphabet on a number of occasions and have always been impressed with the quality of the transcriptions, the quick turnaround times and the easy uploading process.”

Communications Manager
Director Chilli Consultancy

“Chilli Consultancy have been supported by Alphabet’s transcription services since 2016. The efficiency of service is second-to-none. In particular, the system for uploading the audio files securely is smooth and efficient. The turnaround time for transcription has always been quicker than the agreed timeframe. The transcriptions are of very high quality, despite working from audio recordings of people with a wide range of accents from across the world. Chilli Consultancy will continue to use Alphabet for many years to come because of this high level of service.”

“Alphabet have consistently provided an excellent level of service, from day one. Transcripts have been returned quickly and completed with superb accuracy, regardless of recording length or number of speakers. All communication has been extremely friendly and helpful, and, as with the turnaround for the transcripts, responses to any query are always very quick. I would 100% recommend Alphabet based on their speed, accuracy, and customer service.”

Director Cherry

“As a healthcare specialist agency, we rely on accurate transcriptions and often at short notice. We have been working with Alphabet for over three years across multiple projects and they never fail to deliver on time, with excellent accurate and medically correct transcriptions.”

Fraud Investigator Thurrock Council

“We are using Alphabet for all our transcription needs and we are extremely happy with their service. Their transcription is very high quality, leading to a high level of trust and confidence in their work. The team are extremely good with ‘problem’ recordings, such as difficult accents, quiet speech and constant interruptions. All in all we are very happy with Alphabet and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone in this line of work.”

Researcher University of Reading

“Transcribing interviews is a time consuming art, which needs a subtle blend of linguistic and technical skills. Alphabet provided a combination of these abilities. They provided a fast turnaround, great quality documents, and a friendly and personal experience. It was like having my own in-house transcribing team. They offered me a clear, refreshing and honest consultative approach to my needs. I would recommend Alphabet to any persons or organisations that require a professional and friendly transcribing service.”
