There are quite literally hundreds of transcriptionists and transcribing companies and individuals around the world, providing outsourced typing services to just about every industry and profession in existence.
Choosing a transcription service based on the lowest price and the fastest turnaround is one way to get the job done, but what about when it comes to regional accents and dialects?
UK Regional Dialects and Accents Specialist Transcribers – no extra charges
We are specialists for UK and the Republic of Ireland dialects and regional accents and we do not charge extra to transcribe a ‘hard to hear’ dialect or accent. A good proportion of our work comes from academic clients with particular projects based in a geographical location with localised accents. Our transcribers may be required to complete an interview between a Glaswegian and a Scouser, or an Indian national conversing with a Geordie. All in a day’s work!
There are so many different dialects in the UK that anyone trying to undertake verbatim transcription of a recording of them without being a native UK speaker (as indeed all our specialist transcribers are) would really struggle.
Over the years we have worked on large and small projects involving dialects or accents as follows:
- Scottish Highlands
- Edinburgh accents
- Black Country
- Welsh (North Walian and South Walian)
- Yorkshire – particularly South and West Yorkshire accents
- North Staffordshire
- Estuary English
- Essex accents
- Northern Irish
- Dublin accents
- Cork accents
- Galway accents
- British Asian accents
We have also worked on:
- West Indian accents and dialects
- Singaporean (Singlish)
- South African
- Dutch English
- American – all accents – New Yorker, Californian, Chicago etc..
