Interview with Joe McGowan, managing director.
“Prior to creating McGowan Transcriptions in 1993 I worked in the market research industry for DRSM, Field Management Ltd and Hall & Partners in roles ranging from Field Manager to Support Manager.”

What made you decide to become a transcriber and create McGowan Transcriptions?
“Organising transcription was a part of my role as Support Manager and I was always frustrated at how the industry worked; the quality was usually awful and the costs were per hour of time taken, so were wild to say the least! I decided I would be the one to change this!”

Why McGowan Transcriptions?
“I went through many names before settling on McGowan Transcriptions.  Had I known then about the internet and its search engine requirements I’d have chosen something that Google liked!”

What makes McGowan Transcriptions special?
“Our team of professional transcribers makes us special and unique.  Every single member of the Transcription Team is excellent at what they do and they understand our clients’ needs for accuracy and speed.  Every single one of them will go the extra mile if needed for a transcription project.”

How has technology changed the transcription industry?
“Massively!  The internet has changed the way we receive transcription projects.  In 1993 we worked solely on cassettes, so once the postman had arrived we knew how the day was going to be and the vast majority of our clients were from London and the UK. Nowadays while we are all tucked up asleep somewhere on the planet someone is uploading a transcription project to McGowan Transcriptions, often not scheduled in, so technology has added an element of surprise that wasn’t there before!”

What frustrates you today about transcribing compared to earlier years?
“Some individuals fall into the trap of believing that they can achieve an accurate transcript by outsourcing to another agency in a different country.  In my experience, this is not the case.  I can’t tell you how many projects we have taken on in recent years that have already been attempted by another agency, only to have such poor transcripts returned to render them useless.  The other frustration is recordings being uploaded later than expected, this has a massive impact on our schedule and often it’s because there is no physical cassette sat on the desk screaming ‘don’t forget me’…but rather a digital file sat invisibly in the computer forgotten about!”

Anything the rest of the team at McGowan Transcriptions might not know about you?
“I’m a professional artist and singer!  I also make a wicked cup cake!”
