Frequently asked questions

I’ve found a cheaper service elsewhere. Can you beat it?


Our transparent pricing means that you can rest assured that you are getting our best price, and that you know the actual cost of our service from the outset. You may well find a cheaper service elsewhere. Be aware that although some companies headline cheaper prices, often additional costs appear when you receive a quote, for various factors including any background noise, strong accents, proof reading, VAT and so on. You might also want to consider how they are achieving such a competitive price. It may be worth asking who is doing their transcription and what level of quality you might expect. At Word Bee, all transcriptionists are UK based, hand-picked and rigorously trained. Our transcriptionists are paid well above typical industry rates and are valued members of the team. Your transcripts go through a meticulous, two-stage quality check. If you are less concerned about accuracy, or it have the time and patience to correct any inaccuracies yourself, you may prefer to opt for one of the cheaper services on the market.




What's the difference between full verbatim, intelligent verbatim and paraphrased transcription?


Full Verbatim transcripts capture every word spoken on the recording, including stutters, filler words, false starts, and minimal responses. They also include all noises and utterances, such as background noise, interruptions, throat clearing, coughs and sneezes. Intelligent Verbatim transcripts are edited for clarity. The emphasis is on maintaining the cadence and meaning of the language, making it more readable. These exclude any stutters, false starts, repetitions, “ums” and “ahs” and any other unnecessary noises. Paraphrased transcripts call on the transcriber to take some license, editing for grammar and streamlining it to make it sound more eloquent and concise. In addition, any grammatical errors are omitted, paragraphs are restructured and sentences edited or summarised for clarity. However, the objective is to keep the meaning and tone of the interview or recording fully intact. This option can be useful when having lectures or presentations transcribed.




Do I need full verbatim transcription?


This depends very much on the focus of your analysis. In most instances, we find that intelligent verbatim is the preferred choice. Intelligent verbatim transcripts are significantly less time consuming to produce, and therefore they are least expensive option. Also, since they cut out all the fillers, leaving the rest of the dialogue exactly as it’s spoken, they tend to be more readable. On the other hand, if you plan to dissect micro level interactions, full verbatim transcription may be for you.
