Professional High-Quality Audio & Video Transcription Services

McGowan Transcriptions is the UK’s number one digital video and audio transcription agency and has been since 1993. We provide professional, confidential and accurate transcriptions to several different industries. These include research, medical, and legal professions, where quality control and security are paramount. 

We have a wealth of experience across recordings of all types and have a highly experienced team of transcriptionists, typists and translators to call upon. Whether it’s focus groups and interviews or closed captions for video and internal business hearings, we have everything you may need.

We deliver transcripts of the highest quality, every time. Here are some of the things that we can help you with:

Experienced Transcriptionists

The backbone to our success is undoubtedly our fantastic and dedicated team of highly experienced transcribers. Each of our transcriptionists has a minimum of two years of conversational transcript experience and a native level of language proficiency in English. They also must have a minimum audio typing speed of 80 words per minute, ensuring all of your deadlines can be reliably met. 

Our more niche teams such as medical and legal transcriptions, all have relevant sector experience so you can rest assured that your transcriptions are in capable hands. We do this so that we can ensure the highest quality and accuracy, keeping our customers happy.

Unlike other transcription companies, we are passionate about keeping all of our work internal. We will never subcontract our transcriptions to external parties. Our careful hiring process gives us absolute confidence that any outsourced work would not meet the standard of our team.

All our finished transcripts are audited in a stringent quality control process to ensure they meet our exacting standards.

Fast Turnaround Time & Affordable Prices

Our undeniable reliability is something we pride ourselves on. We agree on a quick turnaround upfront that is convenient for you, and then we meet it. It’s as simple as that. 

Having never missed a client deadline, you can be sure that you will get a high-quality transcription exactly when you need it. Better yet, we aim for a 24 hour turnaround time, meaning that more often than not you will receive your transcription the next day and ahead of schedule.

With prices starting from just £1 per recorded minute, we make sure our prices are competitive and transparent. We have four flat rates for different types of transcription work, based on the complexity and the number of speakers involved.

We will provide you with a full quote and a concrete price for the work upfront.

Online Transcription Service Security & Confidentiality

At McGowan Transcriptions we take Security and Confidentiality with your audio and video content extremely seriously. We understand that a lot of the time we are dealing with very sensitive and personal data like voice recordings and phone calls. All our transcriptionists sign an exhaustive confidentiality agreement before starting their role so you can be sure you’re receiving secure transcriptions. We also carry out thorough background checks including a DBS certificate (type of background check which confirms an applicant’s criminal record, and by extension, their suitability for working with children and/or vulnerable adults).

All audio and video are uploaded to Global lounge, our encrypted file upload platform that boasts advanced security protocols including secure 256-bit encryption, as well as fat uploads and huge storage capacity.

We are members of AQR and the MRS and abide by the MRS Code of Conduct regarding confidentiality.

We are also GDPR compliant ( General Data Protection Regulation) and are fully committed to data privacy and protection.

We also work with any in-house security requirements that you may have and are more than happy to sign NDAs for any extremely sensitive topics if you would like us to do so.
