Three Things To Look For In a Transcription Service Provider For Research

Market research has rightly evolved as an integral part of business strategy. Its scientific approach in understanding the volatile nature of the market is an attempt by companies to get some direction. Apart from gathering and analyzing information, market research also attempts to shed some light on the customer personality, spending habit, and location.

market researchNeedless to say that accuracy is key for market research to have any value. And that is also one of the first things that you should look for in a transcription company that you hire for transcribing your research material. What should be the other pointers? Read on to find out.

Timeliness: Respecting deadlines is important, no matter what you do. It might become crucial for things that are deadline-driven. Apparently, the process of market research is a long one and it might seem that fast turnaround of transcription is not super-important. But you may be mistaken. Depending upon the stage of the research a fast transcription might be indispensable. For instance, if a particular product is near completion, the business might want to get the market research result in real time rather than wait for weeks for the final report. In such challenging situation, time is of utmost importance.

Quality: This goes hand in hand with accuracy. Look for a transcription service that offers quality check at every step. At Scribie, we do. It is also important that the transcribers have a keen ear that is able to distinguish the voices of various speakers, especially in group interviews, and understand the different accents.

Verbatim Transcription Services

Verbatim transcriptionVerbatim transcription is an in-depth and accurate transcription of an audio file. This means the transcription takes into account not only the spoken words, but also the various sounds, the non-verbal communications, and the likes. Needless to say that this type of transcription needs a keen ear and an immense attention to detail. Depending upon how intensive a transcription is it may be classified as verbatim and true verbatim. Each type is important and serves very specific purpose and business needs.

Verbatim Transcription
Between the two transcription types mentioned above, verbatim transcription is less intensive. The transcriptionist catches every word, but leaves out the fillers (words like umm, er, etc.). The transcriptionist also edits out the ambient sounds and the non-verbal communication. This kind of ‘intelligent transcription’ is generally preferred by authors, bloggers, and reporters who need to know about the subject but are not really in need of the extreme detail.

True Verbatim Transcription
This is the next level of verbatim transcription where the final transcribed material takes into account all the details of the audio file. This includes all the ambient sounds, all the pauses, laughter, and the likes. This kind of transcription is ideal for market research interviews, movie scripts, PhD interviews, or any other research. In other words, true verbatim transcription is important in situations where the ‘what’ of a subject is as important as the ‘how’.
