What Transcription is
In Media, transcription is the is a process of converting audio and video files into text format, which can be used as reference tools in the future.
Transcription can be used not just, but it is also used to interviews, lectures, presentations. Media is synonymous with communication and its aim is to spread information to the largest audience possible.
The purpose of transcription is manyfold:
- in Academia, to get the whole or part of an interview, or speech, for research purposes
- in Law, to obtain text documents of statements or interviews with witnesses
- in Media, to crate captions or subtitles for videos, films, and documentaries, or in the case of, podcasts, to preserve written records of each show and share information with a larger group of listeners
- in Marketing, to boost SEO and increase visibility online

Clear or full verbatim transcription
Choosing clear or full verbatim transcription will depend on what the transcription is intended for. For instance, if it is for ethnographic research, clear verbatim would be enough, i.e., without the fillers and false starts (erm, um). However, if we are doing analysis discourse, in Linguistics, where verbal fillers play a key role, a full verbatim transcription may be preferred.
Collating documents into a ‘bound set’ is a great way of reducing the cost of legalising documents, as just one apostille will be issued. This is common with the documents mentioned in group 4 above.
