What should I look for when selecting a transcription agency?

When selecting an agency to handle your transcriptions, it is important that it have high standards for accuracy, delivery time and confidentiality. Ask for references and check out client testimonials.

  • For legal transcriptions: Transcribers should hold AOC Certification by the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey and/or the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers (AAERT) to ensure the highest standards in excellence.
  • For medical transcriptions: Transcribers need to be knowledgeable about medical terminology, including drug names and Latin terms, and willing to research when needed.

Will I need to pay money up front to get the transcription started?

We do require a good-faith deposit when ordering the transcription of your media. The balance is due upon completion of the transcript. For an overview of our pricing, see the Rates page.

How long will it take to get my transcript?

That depends on the complexity of your transcription needs and the delivery time you requested when ordering. We strive to meet all deadlines, whether it is a rush order or a standard order.

What steps do you take to ensure confidentiality and client privacy?

All our transcribers are bound by a confidentiality agreement. In addition, your e-mail address, name and mailing address will not be sold to, or shared or traded with, any third party.
