I received excellent service from this company. Their prices were by far the best for doing a transcription with translation.

Wedding Certificate Translation

I got marriage over 20 odd years ago in the dominican republic and have a spanish wedding certificate after being thrown from one person to another I final got told about this company who was so helpful to me, Mattia Piersanti was so kind and helpful even chatted on phone and went though all I needed. even at times when I got confused he just calmly went over it again. Richa Gupta took over when my certificate was done and kindly told me all that had been done, I am so grateful for all there help and the price was so much cheaper than I thought it would be. Thank you so much again Heidi

Due to the expansion of the British Empire, the English language has been one of the most influential languages since the 17th century.

With over 400 million native speakers and almost a billion more speaking it as a second language - the English language is classed as one of the largest in the world by number of speakers.


The English language is the most influential of any language in the world that's why individuals as well as all types of businesses can benefit from professional English transcription services.

With transcription services you can have your speech converted into text - capturing spoken words on paper.

Some may think that this is something any English speaker can do but the reality is that transcription is a demanding job that requires a lot of skill, patience, and attention to detail.

English transcription services can be useful for all parts of business from video subtitles and captions, podcast notes, repurposing audio files into blog content, and more.

In fact, the uses of speech to text are endless.

If you require English transcription services you have come to the right place! 

Establishing connections or targeting a specific market has never been easier.

Absolute Translations are an industry-leading UK-based transcription company, with expert qualifications and a reputation for fast accurate transcription. 

We offer an unbeatable range of transcription services including Audio and Video Transcription, Video Captions, Editing, Subtitling and more.


Verbatim transcription strives for perfect sound with all mistakes and vernacular included, such as ‘umms’ and ‘errs’s’. 

This is used mostly for subtitling video or were a true record of what was exactly said is needed such as a court transcript. 

Intelligent verbatim attempts to record the content and “voice” of the speaker at an interview or event, this type of transcription is good for business, marketing and training materials.

At Absolute Translations, we are able to provide English audio and video transcriptions in whatever format and style you require.


It can be difficult to know who to trust when looking for a transcription service, especially if you have confidential product pitches, court audio or sensitive medical data that needs to be transcribed.

If this is the case, you can rely on Absolute Translations to provide absolute discretion.

Not only do we rely on human transcriptionists over using insecure computer programmes, we also have a non-disclosure policy, but we are also more than happy to sign NDA’s so you can be sure your sensitive audio is in safe hands.

Our robust security has meant our transcription agency has worked with government departments such as the Cabinet Office, Audit Commission, MOD, and Department for International Development, alongside some of the most prestigious and data-sensitive companies in the world such as Microsoft, Apple and HP.


We know it can be tempting to use computer programmes to transcribe English audio, as at first glance they seem the cheaper option.

The reality is that AI is not as reliable as an expert transcriptionist who will be able to quickly and accurately transcribe your audio, without the need for you to laboriously proofread and correct every minute of audio to ensure there are no mistakes - we do that for you.

Computer programmes are also not really able to differentiate between multiple speakers, edit and apply subtitles or cope with background noise. 

When using cheap AI programmes to transcribe audio you cost yourself the time it takes to amend any inconsistencies and missed audio. 

Absolute Translations are a cost-effective alternative to AI programmes, relying on human transcriptionists with industry knowledge of your subject field you can guarantee your audio transcriptions will be professionally produced.

We have exceptionally high standards for all our English audio transcriptionists, and only work with native speakers.

Plus, if your audio is specialised, such as medical, legal or technical, will match you with a transcriptionist who has experience in your field. 

Absolute Translations are at the forefront of the industry being an ISO 9001:2015 certified company and Goldman Sachs 10KSB Programme Partner, as well as being one of the few companies in the world to hold the latest ISO certification specific to translation services, ISO 17100:2015.


As part of our ongoing efforts to protect the environment for future generations, Absolute Translations is proud to have achieved carbon negative status!
