Translation Transcript

When every word counts, you rely on the skills of an experienced transcriptionist to get down every word uttered. Certified transcriptionists can type as fast as 200 words a minute – or even faster! The transcriptionist will record the proceedings in the language being uttered. In order for someone who speaks another language to understand that important transcription, they should seek a competent translations company who can provide an accurate translation transcript.

Different skills are needed for each job. For a transcriptionist, speed is essential. And to be fast, you have to extensively understand the English language and possess top-notch grammatical skills. Experience in the field in which you are transcribing is essential to be able to quickly understand and record the important words.

A translator performing a translation transcript, on the other hand, is expected to thoroughly understand the language and grammar of BOTH target languages. And fluency is not enough on its own – the translator must understand the culture and context of the conversations taking place. This is because context is everything when it comes to translation – words can mean different things depending on who is saying them and how they are being said. It really takes a skilled certified translator to perform a translation transcript.

A transcriptionist needs to have great listening skills. He or she must be able to listen at the same time as typing – a multi-tasking brain is essential for this job! Understanding pronunciation and different dialects is key to making sure that the dialogue is accurately recorded.

On the other hand, the maker of that certified translation transcript needs to understand more about human nature in order to correctly produce an accurate transcript. Not only do the words need to be correct, but to create an accurate transcript you must understand the reasons behind the speaker’s words. It really takes a top-notch certified translations company to produce an accurate translation transcript.
