The current post-production landscape in television programming is much different from what it was 5 years ago. Television shows are now being recorded and presented for viewing at a record pace, and competition from online-only vendors such as Netflix, Amazon Prime video, etc. has further made the industry competitive. In such a place, high-quality television transcription can be the basis for different materials, including open or closed captioning, web extras, out-takes, interview transcripts, subtitling, etc.
Transcribing television footage is much harder than it seems, as transcription for dialogue is as important as shot descriptions, music cues, IDs, TCs, and more. At Outsource2india, we understand the value of television shows transcription services and have ably supported the television and motion picture industry over the past 15 years.
Our Television Transcription Services
At O2I, we provide our television transcription services keeping our clients' requirements in mind, and our in-depth knowledge of scripting requirements varying from children's shows, to light entertainment, comedy, sports, news, educational programs, etc. has allowed us to carve a niche for ourselves in the television broadcasting sector.
Our in-house team of professional transcriptionists guides our clients on the latest styles of transcription that can be adopted for their needs. Leading Hollywood and foreign studios including news studios have relied on our services for efficient time-coded stamping, working on B-roll footage, and captioning while in post-production.
Our services include -
TV Series Transcription
We have worked on tv shows and sitcoms for various national and regional broadcasters in the US, Europe, and Australia. Our transcriptionists have enough experience working on a variety of different programs, such as soap operas, episodic content, etc. We also can add separate audio tracks and transcribe director commentaries to be included the DVDs or Blu-Rays for the same TV show.
Reality Show Transcription
Nowadays, reality shows rule the chart-waves and garner a lot of TRPs for broadcasting channels. Often, such shows are totally unscripted and have unstructured audio. With our experience, we can easily convert all the audible parts of the sounds into text by identifying each speaker and adding brief descriptions of the happenings if so required. Based on your requirements, we transcribe only the relevant audio.
Podcasts today are on the rise as people prefer to travel and listen to them during their work commute. By providing accurate transcriptions for your podcasts, we help you widen your subscriber base and reach out to a whole different dimension of users.
Talk Shows Transcription
Talk shows usually follow a set pattern, with a single host and multiple guests conversing. Lately, though, this set format is changing, sometimes interspersed with live music and sometimes with skits. Our experienced transcriptionists can easily convert the entire talk show audio to text within 12-24 hours, ensuring complete correctness.
Commentary Transcription for Sports
As a television reports transcription company, we also offer our services for the transcription of sports commentary for high profile matches in American football, soccer, cricket etc. Sports commentary is one of the hardest to do transcription for and requires a lot of skill to understand which parts need to be converted into written form properly.
YouTube Video Transcription
Outsourcing television reports transcription services to us means we have all your requirements covered, however, niche they may be. YouTube videos today allow content creators to reach out to a wide audience, and with our television transcription services, you can ensure you can reach out to people from multiple countries who might not understand your language but can see the transcripts as subtitles. Our pricing further ensures you are always satisfied with the budget options we have especially for content creators such as you.
Our Proficiency in Television Transcription Services
At O2I, we believe that a good transcript can serve as the basis for everything from closed-captions to subtitles, web extras, etc. At the same time, it requires extreme dedication and skill, notwithstanding the generous amount of time too. Modern television programming further complicates such things with the addition of music cues, TCs, shot descriptions, etc. Our proficiency and the reason why we are considered one of the most well-regarded television reports transcription service providers is because we know our basics right and have set processes.
Here's a look at how our services differ based on the material at hand -
Raw Footage Transcription
Broadcasters often find it troublesome to edit a piece together, especially when it is a series of lengthy interviews or meetings that need to be captured well. By transcribing your raw footage, we ensure you can search based on key phrases and therefore keep the best material within the final cut. By transcribing your raw footage, we help you save time during editing since you know exactly which parts to skip to and how to weave the story together.
Based upon your requirements, we can either create transcripts verbatim for the entire raw footage or with cuttings and pastings based upon segments. You can trust our transcripts to even come up with a list of the entire dialogue chain.
Distribution and Post-production Transcription
Before a television show is due for release or is during the post-production stage, you might need to provide the broadcasters and distributors with entire transcripts since they have their own formats in which they need to align the show. These requirements can be simple, or quite complex, and usually, require dialogue lists with speaker IDs and time codes. The final produced transcript should reflect the ultimate cut, including scene breakdowns, continuity breaks, act breaks, and descriptions. We also offer custom post-production transcripts with word-accurate dialogues.
Our knowledge and experience in this domain allow us to work on complicated post-production transcripts such as a combined continuity and spotting list, where each shot needs to be numbered to provide an accurate time reference.
As per a recently concluded research conducted by the Gallaudet University, almost 22 out of every 1,000 people in the US itself have a hearing deficiency or are completely deaf. That is a large number of people who might never have access to your television shows if they are not accompanied by closed captions. Also, people who watch a lot of video while commuting, in noisy environments, or for whom English is a second language also benefit from captions.
As your partner for offshore television reports transcription services, we provide you with 100% accurate subtitles and captions, which can introduce your work to the masses. Further, you also gain the possibility to get the English transcript translated into other languages such as Chinese, Russian, etc. by our in-house translation team as well.

Now to other business, I am going to suggest a payment schedule for the outstanding monies that is due. One, can you pay the balance of the license agreement as soon as possible? Two, I suggest we setup or you suggest, what you can pay on the back royalties, would you feel comfortable with paying every two weeks?
