Professional Direct Tamil Transcription and Translation Service from Audio or Video Files

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

The linguist will listen to the Tamil 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 Tamil 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.
