What is Transcription?

Transcription in its basic form is the process of representing oral text in a written text format. The oral text usually comes in the form of various audio and video files. Textual files can include word documents, PDF or simple text (.TXT). Usually businesses indulge in transcribing audio and video recordings of various activities of their company into textual archives. Some of these activities include seminars, conferences, meetings, interviews, brainstorming sessions etc.

A few advantages of transcribing include creating a permanent record, wider reach and ability to review documents quickly. A typical example of creating online transcripts might include a seminar session where the particular speech by a speaker is recorded either on audio or video. This is then reviewed by a transcriptionist who converts this speech into a text based transcript. This transcript can later be distributed to attendees for a review or for further action.

Initially transcription services were largely prevalent in the healthcare industry where doctors' notes and operative procedures were transcribed as part of patient care. It can now be seen across various business and academic functions as well.

Outsourcing transcription services – what are the benefits?

Transcription was one of the oldest services to be outsourced. India remains the leader in terms of quality, cost and the turnaround time of transcriptions when compared to others. With its pool of qualified personnel combined with the right infrastructure, you can be assured of error-free transcription services.

Some of the other direct benefits of outsourcing transcription include:

Cost benefits: Transcription is often a volume driven industry and the cost per transcript adds to the final cost of a transcription assignment. Outsourcing your transcription needs makes for substantial cost savings sometimes up to 50% of the local costs.

Time zone difference: The difference in time zone between India and the West (including Europe) means that you could send the files at the end of your business day and the have them delivered to you the next morning.

Skilled teams: The availability of skilled resources in the west for transcription work is scarce. However, Outsource2india leverages India's availability of highly skilled professionals who can handle large volumes of online transcription services.
