Hindi transcription service for Birmingham City University

by Knockhundred Admin

With the new Air India service from Delhi flying directly to Birmingham Airport, Birmingham City University is well-placed to welcome students and academic staff from India. The university even has its own India Regional Manager based at the Birmingham campus, and the city itself is home to nearly 65,000 residents of Indian ethnic origin.

Our Hindi transcription service for academic research is regularly called upon by students from Birmingham City University.

One of our Hindi linguists has happily lived in Birmingham for the last 15 years. Amita works as a Hindi transcriber and translator from Hindi to English. Much of her work involves listening to Hindi speech on audio and video material and providing a direct translation of that speech into English text. Amita worked on a particularly fascinating set of interviews as part of a research project into current perceptions of the caste system in India: the caste system divides Hindus into four main categories - Brahmins, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas and the Shudras. The interviews were conducted in Hindi, and Amita had to provide the corresponding English translations with regular time stamps so that the researcher could easily identify areas of particular interest.

If you are currently a student or member of the academic staff at Birmingham City University, or you are based at another academic institution, you may be interested to know that we offer an academic discount for our transcription and translation services. If you have some Hindi interviews or footage and would like a quotation to have them transcribed or translated into English, please get in touch and we'd be happy to help.
