Why So Highly Rated?

Why does the company have so many clients choosing our service? So let’s get to the 4 key reasons we have consistently been told that make us the #1 best transcription company globally (yes, globally).

Outstanding Accuracy

We have exceptional teams.

Our transcribers are known to be outstanding because they are experienced and highly skilled. Furthermore, all our transcribers are native English speakers (as well as other language speakers for specific requests) and many of them have years of transcribing behind them or have recently moved careers.  In addition, our transcribers are all subject specialists and therefore know the speech terms of your industry.

Absolute Confidentiality

A very serious approach to policy and managing data confidentiality.

Way With Words requires absolute confidentiality when it comes to receiving, transcribing, and returning your audio or video recordings. The company follows various protocols for data protection and are fully GDPR and data compliant. That means we adhere to the strictest regulations worldwide when it comes to your privacy.

We know how critical it is to protect your files and keep your transcripts private. We offer a private and secure online account to all our clients, hosted on a secure (SSL) server and only accessible by a unique password. Clients can then upload, manage and pay for files in their account. Files are hosted on the account and 30-60 days after completion of a job (unless you request an even faster deletion or want to retain the files longer) for security.

For access to your files, our transcribers are also required to work from a secure online account that is monitored by us for a certain level of software security. Transcribers have to sign in to access files and all activity related to processing your files is logged.

Transcribers also have been contracted with clauses that specifically cover confidentiality. They are also vetted for security and ID verification.

On Time

We keep to the deadline because your time is your money.

If you need that transcript quickly, we offer a fast transcription service offering an express turnaround that starts and soon as you upload your file. If your budget is tight and you are able to wait a little longer for your transcripts, we have several longer turnaround options for you to choose from.

Custom Formats And Solutions

We are flexible.

We will meet your unique or custom requirements and will transcribe any volume of audio or video hours. Just let us know beforehand of course so we can work on a solution for any need you have. Your transcript layout can include any options you require, so you can have time coding, full verbatim format or even – should you upload a video – text that shows on video.
