Video Transcription

We can undertake video transcription, whether this is for closed captioning, subtitles or simply providing a transcript of footage.

It is becoming increasingly popular to transcribe YouTube videos for SEO purposes and visibility. After all, not everyone has the time or inclination to view a video, whereas a transcribed version can be quickly read. Whilst Google offer an automatic subtitling service for YouTube videos, the technology is not yet good enough to enable high levels of accuracy. As a result a lot of organisations get their subtitling completed by subtitling and close captioning specialists.

Subtitling is usually undertaken by a specialist team using software designed specifically to enable time stamps and text to fit the speech in a video. The easiest way of subtitling a YouTube video is simply to send us the web link to the video and we can then email you the .SRT file to upload to YouTube in your YouTube creator studio (log into your YouTube channel to learn more). The same .SRT file can be used with MP4 video files on other websites and we can also advise on embedding the video with subtitles without needing to use YouTube.

Request a quote or send us a file (or email us a website URL for YouTube videos). We can return the transcription in Word document format, or any other specialist formats you require including video captioning separately or with the footage. The most common method of returning the files is in .SRT format by email.

Prices for subtitling are higher than for standard transcription – there is considerably more work involved.

We can assist with all types of video files – .MP4 being the most common.
