Research Transcription Choices
Looking at qualitative market research for example? Consider the opinions expressed carefully by what the interviewee says and how its transcribed. Doing medical or healthcare research into the effects a certain drug might have? You’re probably not going to need every false start and crutch word a participant utters. But if you’re doing a linguistic study into the effect modern technology is having on adolescent phraseology, however, you’re going to need every utterance marked on your transcript.
For this reason, we offer clients the opportunity to select whether they want their transcripts in a Smart or Standard (Intelligent Verbatim) format, or even a Full Verbatim format when they choose our research transcription services.
Choose the options that best suit your research needs
- Smart: This is a transcript which EXCLUDES ‘you know’, ‘I mean’, ‘sort of’, ‘kind of’, ‘like’, etc, emotions, background noises, the unnecessary use of ‘right’ and ‘okay’, meaningless prompts by the IV and repeated short phrases but INCLUDES half sentences.
- Standard (Intelligent Verbatim): This is a transcript that EXCLUDES ums and ahs, repeated words, emotions, background noises, and meaningless prompts by the IV, but INCLUDES half sentences, verbiage and repeated short phrases.
- Full Verbatim: This is a verbatim transcript, which INCLUDES ums and ahs, repeated words, half sentences, background noises, emotions, and verbiage.
Highly accurate with options for fast turnarounds
In the event you’re doing very time-sensitive research, we offer turnaround times from EXPRESS, 24 hours or longer so you know exactly when you’re going to get that important transcript the very next working day. The best part about using our research transcription serves?
We don’t dictate the turnaround time, you do!
