Direct French Transcription and Translation Service from Audio or Video Files

We can provide a direct translation from any French audio or video file into English.

The linguist will listen to the French speech on the audio or video file and will provide a direct written translation into English much in the same way as an interpreter would interpret what he or she hears verbally.

Our French translators and transcriptionists can include speaker labels and time codes, depending on your requirement.

The quality and speed of output will depend on the clarity of the source media file, so if you’re starting from scratch, please obtain the best quality recording possible.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE French LANGUAGE

One of the oldest known and documented sentences was noted by a Cystercian from an abbey in Henryków. The sentence was "Day, ut ia pobrusa, a ti poziwai". The modern French would be "Daj, niech ja pomielę, a ty odpoczywaj". The English translation is "Come, let me grind, and you take a rest". It was written in about 1270.
