How Legal Transcription Works

Legal transcription is the process through which oral dictation from legal proceedings, professionals are recorded into printed and electronic formats. The use of the services can be applied in various areas including hearings, summaries, judgments, legal discussions, briefs, testimonies and others. The type of people who require the legal transcription services include the attorneys, non profit organizations, insurance companies, banks, corporations and many others. These services are offered by a number of professionals and the clients can decide to use local or regional ones or settle for outsourcing them. The process involves the legal professionals recording the proceedings or information in a digital voice recorder and have them sent to the transcription translation service provider. The information can be sent in a penumbra of ways including via email or a secure Internet connection, after converting the file to an MP3 or via mail after burning the contents into a CD. When the transcriptionists listens to the tape, they transcribe the audio and then comes up with a draft as per the instructions of the legal professionals. The next step involves a proof reader who will listen to the audio and eliminate the errors and checking out those sectors that are not audible. The audio file or the tape will then be taken to a senior proof reader who will determine the quality of the final product before it is sent to the client. Different companies use different equipment to capture the content of the legal proceedings. Some may offer their clients with digital audio recorders while others will provide them with an 800 number which they will access for their transcription needs. The turnaround time of these services will depend with the size of the project as well as with the type of company selected. Many of them have professional translation who work around the clock and can provide the final product in a faster rate mostly between 12-24 hours.
