Government Transcription Services

Need transcripts of council meetings, interviews, public reports, cabinet minutes, more? Way With Words government transcription services provides the best blend of accuracy, professionalism, confidentiality, security, speed, and price. Way With Words has over a decade of experience transcribing official and highly confidential recordings and documents for government institutions and non-profit organizations. Our dedicated team of professional transcribers serves the unique needs of government departments worldwide.



We are available to transcribe whatever a government department, whether local, regional or national, might require – anything from council meetings, police interviews, public reports, cabinet minutes, and government research into social programs, the environment or correctional institutes. Way With Words will serve your needs.

Confidential And Secure

Government recordings often contain sensitive data, so security is something a transcription company should not overlook when providing services. In fact, security should be among the highest concerns. Providers of Government transcription services must follow the various laws and industry best practice, especially when serving government departments, law firms, police departments or courts.

Transcription security and data protection include maintaining the confidentiality of the data through information security practices such as limiting access with unique logins and passwords and ensuring a secure environment for data as well as timely and appropriate methods of disposal of all materials and deletion of audio and video files. Way With Words staff, management, and transcribers – who are recruited and vetted – are required to sign non-disclosure agreements as part of their employment contract with us, as well as take various oaths regarding confidentiality and accuracy. Many of our transcribers have signed additional privacy terms with us to comply with the highest level of security, such as the Official Secrets Act in the case of our United Kingdom government clients.

Our government transcription services provide a range of turnarounds and special options to suit your timetable and departmental or public budget. If you’re only interested in one speaker in a witness interview, for example, we will transcribe only that speaker and that speaker’s speech is all you will pay for. If you need regular timestamps so that you can mark exactly where in a meeting that someone said a critical phrase or made an allegation, we will happily provide these for you. If you have a particular format of transcription that you’d like to have us follow, we will happily do so, for a small surcharge.

Some of our non-profit work is for the World Health Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross, and Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. We are trusted by the biggest and the best.
