Academic transcription has become a key service in our transcription portfolio. As transcription techniques have become more sophisticated, Knockhundred believes that we can offer the most accurate academic transcripts, with fast delivery times and at the most competitive rates.

Our team of secretaries, typists and transcriptionists have a skill set covering many disciplines and types of academic transcription. We can handle academic transcription assignments from students, lecturers, researchers and academics.

Academic transcription formats available

We can provide you with a verbatim transcript where every word is recorded exactly as spoken, including repetitions, coughs, pauses, "errs" and "umms". Alternatively we can provide an "intelligent verbatim" transcription where repetitions and irrelevant information is omitted while still delivering an accurate record of what has been said in high-quality written English (or other language).

We are also able to supply "summary transcripts". This type of transcription results in a précis containing only the salient information from the source recordings.

Academic transcriptions in multiple languages

We offer academic transcription in English and over 150 other languages including: French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Japanese, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. For a full list of available languages, please refer to our languages page.


Our professional academic transcriptionists are bound by a non-disclosure agreement to keep all material confidential. We are happy to sign additional non-disclosure agreements if required.
