Research Transcription Service

At TypeOut we understand the important role research plays in society and the importance of high quality and accurate transcriptions in helping research companies to achieve their goals.

We have been lending our services to organisations since 2008 in order to assist them with transcribing recorded interviews, telephone conversations and focus groups. Outsourcing your transcription to us enables you to spend time focussing on more important tasks rather than losing valuable hours writing up transcriptions.

We offer reliability by using a specific transcription team who have a wealth of experience in transcribing interviews and focus groups. We know that no one project is the same, as some require us to transcribe with a higher level of detail such as verbatim, intelligent verbatim or discourse analysis.

Security and confidentiality are also important factors for research companies – and we are fully committed to providing exactly that. Your files are secured with 256-bit SSL encryption when being uploaded, and all of our typists have signed confidentiality agreements with us.

TypeOut also diligently complies with the Data Protection Act and are voluntary members of the Information Commissioner’s Office.

We act as a key team member, assisting in producing a written copy of your recordings whether you require our services once, or would like us to continuously produce transcriptions for you. With no contracts and a pay-per-use basis, we are a flexible solution for all your transcription needs.

Typeout are very efficient, always accurate, deliver when they say they will and are great people to work with. We only use Typeout these days.


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
