What Is Academic Transcription?

Simply put, academic transcription is a service for academics (professors, students, researchers, etc.) that saves precious time converting audio and video sources to useable text.

“Usability” is an important point to underline. Most research needs written documentation to support a thesis or a research topic. Links to online videos or including audio files normally don’t cut it.

Academic transcription services are extremely useful because they allow you to focus on what you do best: research. You collect the information in the form of recorded sessions (audio or video). Then, upload your files to Elite’s secure server. Our professional transcriptionists will get to work converting that source material to written documents that you can add in support of your thesis, dissertation, research paper, or whatever academic materials you are writing. Our services can also help you convert secondary sources including documentaries and lectures that may be available to you online or in a video/audio file.

Spend More Time Researching and Less Time Administering

Many academics and researchers including students and faculty find typing out their own notes to be tedious. It’s worse if they can’t type very quickly. Hunting and pecking those interviews can take hours!

On the other hand, that same snippet of audio might take a professional academic transcriptionist minutes to complete.

Plus, academic research is among the most rigorous – especially if you are defending a thesis or submitting your research for peer review. Academic transcription services can provide added benefits to meet those higher standards:

  • Speed up the transcription process – not only are professional academic transcriptionists likely faster than you at transcribing, they can generate your transcripts while you are doing other things to prepare your research
  • Improve spelling and grammar (if these are not your strong suits)
  • Give you professional formatting – Elite can format your final transcripts to your specs including layout on the page and file type
  • Provide you with ready-made text for your thesis, dissertation, research reports, essays, articles, etc. Rather than search out rough quotes from your notes, get verbatim transcripts that you can cut and paste directly to your document

Don’t forget – if you’re applying for a grant for your research project, you can include academic transcription services into your grant budget. Contact us and we can help you estimate your transcription costs based on your expected workload.
