What is a legal transcription?

Legal transcription is the process of listening to audio recordings, such as witness statements and court hearings, and creating word-for-word transcriptions. Legal transcription can also include transcribing audio or video files for legal professionals in order to create high quality legal documents.

Legal transcription services must be accurate and reliable, which is why many legal sectors enlist the help of professional transcription services to provide their transcriptions. Professional transcription companies typically offer a confidentiality agreement so that clients can rest assured that all audio and data are kept safe according to data protection regulations.

UK based legal transcription services provide an accurate, verbatim transcription of legal documents in a timely manner with minimal turnaround time. Many large law firms rely on these services to help generate accurate documents for their clients, and many legal professionals now use audio transcription as part of their day-to-day work.

The process is usually very straightforward, with secure uploads for the audio or video files followed by a detailed transcription which can be accessed easily online. This makes audio transcription an invaluable tool for anyone working within the legal sector.

In conclusion, legal transcription is an effective way of creating accurate documents from audio or video recordings. By using UK based professional transcription services, legal professionals can ensure that their transcriptions are of high quality and confidentiality is maintained.


Why is it so important for them to be accurate?

Accuracy is essential when it comes to legal transcription and therefore accuracy must be of the utmost importance to ensure that all transcriptions are accurate, reliable and can stand up in court if necessary.

By using a professional transcription service, clients can guarantee that their transcriptions will meet the highest standards of accuracy so that they can trust in their reliability. This is of paramount importance when dealing with legal documents, as any inaccuracy could have serious consequences. Therefore, accuracy must always be a top priority when it comes to legal transcription.

I could not have been happier with the transcription service I received
from TypeOut. The turnaround was quick and of good quality (despite the
sector specific language and acronyms used in the audio files). Would use
TypeOut again to help with the burden of transcribing long qualitative
