Why Captain Words is your best choice
Do you have questions about our transcription service?
How long does your transcription service take?
As a standard, we typically take 3 – 5 days, depending on the size and requirements of your project. If your audio or video files are under 30 minutes, it may be delivered within 48 hours. However, longer videos, specialized topics, or pictographic language transcriptions may take a little longer. If you’re interested in a rush service, please contact our team for a quote.
Do you provide timestamps?
When we create your subtitle files, we embed the timestamps into the file using our software. However, if you have a transcription project that needs manual timestamps, we can provide that as part of the service at an additional cost.
Which file formats do you accept?
We can do transcriptions for any of the following audio and video files: MP3, MP4, WMV, AIF, M4A, MOV, AVI, VOB, AMR, WMA, OGG, AAC, and WAV. Our subtitles are typically exported in the SRT format. If you require a different format, please check with our team to find out if we can assist.
I need specialized skills for my transcription project. Can you help?
Captain Words employs excellent writers with cross-industry experience from around the world. If there’s a special skill you need, we likely have several writers who can meet your needs. Please keep in mind that, the more specialized your project, the longer it may take. If you need a transcriber trained in medical or court transcriptions, your project may take up to six days, depending on the audio length.
Can I hire a dedicated writer for my web transcription project?
Depending on the scope of work, we may assign more than one writer to your project. However, sometimes a writer and a client simply “click” and work extremely well together. If one of our writers exceeds your expectations, you’re welcome to request their exclusive attention. If you prefer to have one of our writers work exclusively on your project, please contact our management team to discuss a managed services arrangement.
