Transcription of Audio/Video Content
Do you have an audio- or video-recording of a speech, a presentation, a debate, a workshop, or a panel discussion and you need to have it presented in the form of text and translated from a foreign language into Russian or vice versa? At first glance, it doesn’t seem like a hard task — not until you try it for yourself. Once you give it a shot, you’ll discover that it won’t be possible to get the job done without having professional skills. It turns out that this type of work requires diligence, attentiveness, literacy, a high typing speed, an ability to not just overhear and figure out what’s been uttered by the speaker (the recording can be of rather poor quality), but what’s behind those words – the thoughts and intentions of the speaker, with the latter’s intonation likely to be crucial in some parts of the address. Or are you dealing with a recording of a heated debate where the participants keep heckling each other trying to interpose a comment or even happen to speak all at the same time? All this done in a foreign language and numerous specialized terms or a professional lingo used along the way? The quality of the recording poor? Besides, there are times when one has to recognize the speakers by their voice and figure out whom a certain statement is coming from. One can easily tell it when dealing with videos, while it’s hard to do it when it comes to audio-recordings. However, all this can be achieved if done by someone with extensive experience and using special computer programs.
