Film Industry Transcription

Movie trailers, cartoons, advertisements or other films requiring voice-overs often need to be transcribed in order that the dubbing can be carried out accurately. To aid this we are happy to put ‘time stamps’ in any movie transcriptions, but this does take longer so there is a surcharge. We have experience of transcribing trailers, cartoons and advertisements and appreciate the importance not only of accurate transcription but also accurate time stamping.

Obviously background noise and other sound ‘issues’ such as accents are a given in this kind of work and that is also reflected in our rates.

Please see the table below for our rates. These reflect the commonest timestamp requests but we can time stamp using any time period: please fill in our on-line quote request form for a quote tailored to your needs.
