We love working with students and continue to provide transcription services to graduate and PhD students, professors and researchers at universities around the UK. Students are entitled to a discount as understandably they are operating to tight budgets but still require a first class service. As there is no vat to pay, this also represents a significant saving for students.

Types of Verbatim

Transcripts can be provided as ‘verbatim’ transcripts (including all the erms, ahs) or ‘intelligent verbatim’ (excluding erms, ahs). Participants are identified using their initials each time they speak. Line numbering may be added throughout the transcript if required.
