TRANSCRIPTS TYPED INTELLIGENT VERBATIM OR STRICT VERBATIM STYLE?

Intelligent Verbatim with slang – Most commonly used.

The transcript reads easily and clearly with all relevant information included.

False starts/ repeated words, erm, er, you know, know what I mean will be omitted. 

Gonna and wanna will be left as is. 

Cause will be because. 

Yeah/yes/yep/yip/yea will be yes or yeah.

Ok will be okay.

 

Intelligent Verbatim without slang

As above but gonna will be typed going to, and wanna will be typed want to.

 

Strict Verbatim

Typed word for word, including all that is said.

So, all false starts/ repeated words/ erm, er, you know, know what I mean, coughing, throat clearing, gonna, wanna, cause, yeah,  yip, yep, yea, aha, uh-huh will all be left in. 

 

TIMECODES OR REGULAR TEMPLATE?

You have the option of choosing a regular template for your transcript or having it timecoded at 30 or 60 second intervals and at every speaker change.  A timecoded transcript does incur an extra charge.  I can provide copies of both for you to choose from.
