What Transcript do you need?
There are two main styles of interview transcription; these are known as either clean verbatim or strict verbatim. Each style may be used for different projects, depending on what the transcript is to be used for. In most instances, the preferred choice is clean verbatim. To help you decide which style is suitable for your project, the two different styles are explained below.
Clean verbatim omits or adjusts the following:
- Filler speech, including “um”, “ah”, etc.
- Repetition of words, unless useful for emphasis.
- Speaker idiosyncrasies such as the repetitive use of “like”, “actually”, “sort of” “kind of”, etc.
- Interruptions made by the interviewer, such as “yeah”, “mm-hmm” and “okay”.
- Most non-speech sounds, including coughing and throat clearing (laughter may be left in if it helps the context).
- False starts or redirection.
- Run-on sentences.
A clean verbatim transcript is still an accurate representation of the original recording but irrelevant elements are removed, thereby achieving an easily readable transcript. A clean verbatim style does not edit sentence structure or add, remove or change important words. In the majority of cases grammar is usually left as dictated.
Strict verbatim attempts to capture every speaker utterance. Strict verbatim transcripts include all of the items usually omitted from clean verbatim (see above).
If you aren’t sure whether you need a clean or strict verbatim transcript, please discuss with your Account Manager at the start of the project. In most instances, clean verbatim is suitable as it is concise and can be easily read.
Choosing an experienced transcription company with professionals who are familiar with sector specific jargon is essential for high quality, accurate transcripts.
