    Transcription tools

    In order to carry out professional translation services it is fundamental to have necessary transcription tools that are adapted to the service and the transcriber.

    There are not many professional transcription software that allow us to carry out a manual transcription adequate to each transcription need. We leave you 4 fundamental manual transcription tools to give a good professional transcription service.

    Two main types of transcription exist:

    • Literal transcription:When an exact transcription is carried out.
    • Natural transcription: When a transcription without common discourse errors is carried out.

    If you want more information about transcription services, you can continue to see: Transcription Service.
