Transcription typing

Word Perfect offers a transcription service. We can transcribe from digital audio files or cassettes to the highest quality.

Examples of work we carry out but not limited to are:-

  • Interview transcription
  • Legal transcription
  • Property transcription
  • Medical transcription
  • Insurance transcription
  • Qualitative research interview transcription
  • Telephone transcription
  • HR Disciplinary interviews

If you have anything that you need transcribing that is not on the list please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss.

We can transcribe from most audio file extensions including MP3, DSS, DS2, WAV and many others.

We transcribe your audio then we will go through the transcript again to check for spelling and grammar and to try and fill in any unclears. It is also important to carry out research of company names and other complex spellings to ensure the spellings are correct and to familiarise ourselves with your terminology.  It is also useful if the client provides a list of keywords for complex recordings such as medical interviews.

Technology has progressed so much over the last few years that did you know you can now dictate things on your phone using apps and then you can save and send the files to me straight from your phone. More advice on this can be provided on request.

Testimonials for transcription typing

“Kerry has been typing documents for me for several years.  I first used her services to type my Master’s dissertation when I was at university and now I am a Chartered Surveyor she produces reports and documents I use at work.  Kerry is very efficient and accurate.  It’s a big help that she has a lot of experience producing reports for surveyors, she has a very good understanding of the terminology I use.  I would have no hesitation recommending Kerry to other surveyors or indeed other business professionals.”

Rob Yoxon, Chartered Building Surveyor

“At my last employment, all my surveys were created with standard paragraphs so no real typing had to be done. When I left all my survey reports had to be typed, this was a big change for me. Kerry Parker’s details were passed onto me, I contacted Kerry and since November 2021 Kerry has been typing all my survey reports. The standard has been excellent and returned within the agreed time limit. Kerry has been a great support, provided good constructive feedback, helpful and easy to get along with. In summary, Kerry has proved to be a great asset and I have been delighted with her help and typing capabilities.”

David J Blakeley FRICS, Chartered Surveyor

“Fast and efficient service, great quality too. Would highly recommend and will use Kerry’s services again! Kerry helped out in a very short timescale and turned around the piece of work to an excellent standard.”

Natasha Jacques, Solicitor at Howells Solicitors LLP.

“I can heartily recommend the services and support provided by Word Perfect. We have had typing support, marketing services (letters, emails and mailing lists). Work Perfect supports our ad hoc requirements too, which for a small business is very cost-effective”

Martin Poulter, Chambers People

“Kerry was really friendly from the start and communicated with me really well. Kerry and her team transcribed about 20 hours of audio recordings in just a few weeks and made a real effort to interpret some quite challenging audio (We conducted the research over speakerphone using Dictaphones to record conversations which was challenging to say the least). Kerry and her team went over and above to transcribe an old-style Dictaphone which didn’t allow them to download the footage onto their PC. Without this, the project would have failed and Kerry was the only person I could find to do this in the area. Kerry sent the documents via email in separate word files. They were easy to understand and were just what we needed. Overall a brilliant service and top quality work.”

James Smith (South Yorkshire Housing Association).

“I have used Kerry’s transcription service from time to time for preparation of arbitration awards.  Even though this is irregular work, Kerry has always responded promptly and produced accurate and reliable transcription.”

Tony Marks, ArbDB Chambers.  

“Our Company has used Kerry at Word Perfect Transcription Services for many years now and we regard Kerry as an important part of our team. We send typing work to Kerry on a daily basis and we are always impressed by the speed in which she returns her very accurate typing back to us together with her true professionalism and friendliness. We would certainly recommend Word Perfect Transcription Services every time.”

Mike Kidder, BSc, MRICS – Mike Kidder Associates

“Kerry has been typing Home Buyers and Valuation Reports for us for around 6 months now. She is super-efficient, being able to work within our deadlines no matter how tight. The quality of the work has always been first class and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any fellow surveyors or colleagues who require typing or transcription work.”

Mark Bennett, BSc MRICS – M Bennett Associates

“Kerry at Word Perfect offers an excellent service which is both economic and prompt. Since retirement having access to a professional transcription service has improved the viability of maintaining ongoing consultancy work prior to eventual full-time retirement.”

Adrian Fidler, FRICS

“Kerry is timeous and accurate. Her rate is extremely reasonable, and she goes that extra mile in times of pressure to enable the job to be carried out and completed with her continued attention to detail.”

Bruce Frew (Barrister at St Philips Chambers)

“I am delighted to recommend Kerry’s work. Kerry has typed my dictation (which is a challenge to anyone) quickly, accurately, and without complaint. I have been impressed by her willingness to learn and adaptability. I am looking forward to continuing to work with her.”

Raymond Cox QC (Fountain Court Chambers)

“Kerry Parker has been undertaking audio transcribing for me for over five years.

The work which Kerry does for me involves the typing of Opinions, Advices, Written Arguments, Pleadings, Letters, as well as technical drafting work such as Contracts, Statutory Regulations etc. Much of this is specialist regulatory and commercial work, some of it international. It is not uncommon for the documents Kerry works on to be complex: in a large case, a single document may extend to well over 100 pages and involve a wide variety of technical terms and names, all of which must be transcribed with scrupulous accuracy.

We first started working together in 2014 and Kerry very quickly adapted to my particular area of legal drafting and was soon turning work around extremely quickly and with ever-increasing accuracy. Kerry has been familiar with the work and with the way I dictate it for some years, so that I am fully confident that any piece of work I send to her will be returned swiftly and without errors.

There are particular qualities about Kerry which I would wish to stress. First, she is prepared to put herself out to ensure that a piece of work is returned very quickly. She has undertaken work for me – for example in urgent cases – working late into the night or in the early hours of the morning and at weekends. If she can make time to do the work, she will, and she unfailingly delivers on what she promises. Second, she is concerned to ensure that her work is accurate. She will check through everything before sending it back whilst faithfully sticking to what I have recorded.

I have come to rely upon Kerry for her work. She is unfailingly calm and helpful, and I have no hesitation in recommending her.”

Timothy Dutton CBE, QC (Fountain Court Chambers).

“I’ve worked with Kerry on a number of projects in recent months which have included the transcription of depth interviews, assistance with some desk research and help with my book-keeping. On every occasion I have found Kerry to be extremely responsive, reliable and very flexible. Her work is always completed to a high standard, and at a reasonable cost. Working with Kerry has been a real benefit to my business, helping me to juggle a number of different projects at the same time, and enabling me to meet client deadlines. I would be happy to recommend Kerry to others.”

Julie Harrington (Resourceful Research).

“I needed a transcript preparing at short notice mid-trial; Kerry turned it round in double quick time – outstanding service and accurate – thanks!”

Tim (Favell Smith & Lawson Solicitors)
