Professional Audio & Video Transcription Services

McGowan Transcriptions have been digital transcription service specialists since 1993.  We provide professional, confidential, accurate transcriptions to a variety of industries, including market research, medical, and legal professions.  We have vast experience across recordings of all types, from focus groups and interviews to closed captions for video and internal business hearings.

We are one the leading transcription companies in the UK and are at the forefront of digital transcription technology, delivering transcripts of the highest possible quality and accuracy. We can help with:

Fast Turnaround Time & Affordable Prices

We pride ourselves on the level of reliability we can provide to our clients. We’ll agree a turnaround time with you upfront that’s convenient for you.

We have never missed a client deadline, meaning you get the transcription services you need on time every time. Even better, we always aim for a 24 hour turnaround, meaning you’ll often receive your transcript ahead of schedule.

Our prices are competitive and transparent, beginning from just £1 per recorded minute. We have four flat rates for different   types of transcription work, based on the complexity and the number of speakers involved. We’ll provide you with a full quote and exact price upfront for your work.

Transcription Security & Confidentiality

Security and confidentiality is crucial in any transcription service, especially when dealing with sensitive information and personal data. We require all our transcriptionists to sign an exhaustive confidentiality agreement and also carry out full background checks including a DBS certificate.

All audio and video is uploaded to our encrypted file upload platform Global Lounge. This boasts advanced security protocols including secure 256 bit encryption, as well as fast uploads and a generous storage capacity.

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

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

If you have your own in-house security requirements, we will also work with these. For extremely sensitive projects, we are happy to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements for additional peace of mind. If you are looking for transcription companies in the UK look no further.

Polished Transcripts

We’ll work closely with you to produce a transcript that meets your needs,

Each of our transcripts is carefully produced, presented, and delivered to meet your exact requirements. We offer a number of transcription templates that are designed for professional settings and applications, with true verbatim and intelligent verbatim transcriptions available alongside edited transcripts. We develop client-specific glossaries to ensure consistency and rapid response.

We are also happy to work to your preferences and produce transcripts that adhere to your own guidelines and layouts. Either way, you’ll always receive a professionally presented and highly accurate transcript from our team.

Experienced Transcriptionists

We believe the backbone of our success is in our fantastic and dedicated team of experienced transcribers. We require all our transcriptionists to have a minimum of two years conversational transcription experience and a native level language proficiency in English. We also look for a minimum audio typing speed of 80 words per minute to ensure that deadlines can be reliably met.

For specialised roles such as medical and legal transcription services, our transcribers must also have relevant experience in the sector. This ensures the highest level of quality and accuracy, and a transcript that our clients can rely on.

Uniquely, we never subcontract digital transcription projects to third parties. We carefully hire our transcriptionists for their experience and aptitude and know that we could not guarantee the same results for our clients otherwise.

All our finished transcripts are audited in a stringent quality control process to ensure they meet our exacting standards.  You will not find the same quality of audio transcription service anywhere else.
