Please contact us by phone, email or complete the online enquiry form. We will then discuss your proposed work and give you an immediate decision on availability and cost.


Upon receipt or your enquiry a client pack and booking form will be sent by email. All initial enquiries will be held for 7 days. Once a firm booking has been made we will send you the internet link to upload your files. A Purchase Order No. [if applicable] must be sent to us before the commencement of your files.


When the booking is agreed, or your project is complete, you will upload your data files or send us your documents. Once we receive your files we can give you a final quote for cost and turnaround. We can only do this once we have an idea of the quality and length of the actual files. You may at this stage request the return of your files if you are not happy with the quotes. Your booking will be cancelled and your files returned and/or deleted from our system.


Your project will be completed, double-checked and returned to you as a digital print copy by the agreed deadline. Any hard copy files will be returned to you and your digital files will be removed from our system on a date agreed with you.

Academic Transcriptions provides the highest quality service for your important voice recordings.

Our transcription and secretarial team have years of experience with a huge range of subjects and types of projects. If you have an upcoming project we can coach you to produce high quality recordings. 


Extensive training is given to our typists to produce transcripts to the highest quality.  Each transcript is thoroughly checked before being returned via email.


We have considerable experience of dealing with sensitive and confidential reports and qualitative research data. We are GDPR compliant and will never pass your contact details to third parties. 

English language skills

All our staff have a good command of the English language, and we do not use voice recognition software.

Competitive rates

Our rates for high quality dictation are very competitive. For more complex recordings of multiple speakers the skills and time needed are greater. Our rates reflect this, but an accurate transcription first time is most cost effective.

Range of formats

We can transcribe audio or video files on tape, disc or a variety of digital formats. We can also copy type from handwritten notes or transfer print documents into digital format.
