What do our clients say?

Why Use Us?

We are accurate…
You will not find the same quality of transcript anywhere else as our transcribers only transcribe for McGowan Transcriptions. Each transcript goes through a rigid quality control system before release and we have a team of accredited proofreaders.

We are never late…
In 22 years we have never missed a client deadline.

We are confidential…
Every transcriber has signed a full and comprehensive confidentiality agreement, is CRB checked and has had their identity proven. We do not use ad hoc transcribers; all members of our team are permanent members of staff.

We are easy to work with…
Once you are set up on our secure ScribeManager system you can upload multiple files quickly and without scheduling them in…add the project information into the details box as you upload and we’ll do the rest. Should you wish to discuss your project in more detail, then call us free on 0800 158 3747 and experience our friendly and accommodating service firsthand.

We all have English as our mother tongue…
We never subcontract out transcribing work to third parties at home or abroad. This is of vital importance as we understand context, regional dialects and slang; therefore eliminating misheard or misunderstood words.

We are secure…
We use ScribeManager which has AES 256-bit encryption with SSAE 16 certification. We also have comprehensive security protocols in place regarding file encryption and compliance procedures.
