Penguin Office Services were immensely helpful in transcribing the oral histories and interviews that I undertook with descendants of polar explorers. I’ve now finally completed everything and passed my PhD […] thank you for the role that Penguin Office Services played in it. Having the transcriptions done so efficiently and carefully saved me such a huge amount of time and so helped me out no end!

Is there a transcription OSCAR?! There really should be and Penguin would be deserving winners. Skilled transcription carries so many different benefits.

I thoroughly endorse Penguin Office Services for any sensitive research project. Not only were they speedy in turning around the transcripts, they were adept at dealing with challenging audio material such as second language-accented English and code-switching, making perceptive guesses where necessary. As I read through the transcripts side-by-side with the recordings, I am struck by how intelligent their ‘intelligent verbatim’ service is. Not only this, they are also discreet and respectful of research objectives and research participants.

I would like to thank you – you have provided a superb service of transcription. You were immensely efficient, organised and provided such a fast service. I had called in excess of ten different transcribing services and found you to be the cheapest. I have been thoroughly impressed by your services. I appreciated the communication which enabled me to keep track of the discs and most of all I was astounded at the turnaround of the transcription. Brilliant service, fast, reliable and efficient. I have recommended you to my colleagues. I will definitely call upon you again.
