Transcription, Localisation and Access Services

Transcription, Localisation and Access Services Logo

Take 1 is the UK’s leading media-specialist transcription, access services and languaging company.  We have been providing accurate high-quality transcriptions, captions and translations to the international broadcast and production community for over twenty years. We pride ourselves on our customer service levels and consistency, and do our utmost to deliver on time every time to ensure your budget and deadlines are met, no matter the size of your project.

In addition to our UK HQ, we also have a presence on both US coasts and Santiago, Chile, so we can deliver scripts to any time-zone, and our understanding of production and localisation workflows gives our customers and their end-users confidence and peace of mind when getting together their deliverables. Localisation houses also recognise our scripts as reliable templates from which to create foreign dubs and subs.

As well as holding the DPP’s Committed to Security accreditation, we’re in the advanced stages of securing TPN (Trusted Partner Network) accreditation approval, which will add another industry-recognised security certificate to our already stringent security protocols, thus further protecting your content while it is in Take 1’s care.

Our core services are:

Transcription Services:

  • Transcription of interviews, rushes and raw footage to assist in the edit
  • Post-production scripts for delivery to broadcaster, compliance and as a blueprint for localisation.
  • Reversioning of scripts to match multiple versions. 

Access Services:

  • Captions available in any format and layout, for web projects, OTT, VOD and broadcast (UK and US broadcaster specs).
  • Audio Description – we can prepare both the scripts and the voicing, and have a range of voices available including synthetic.

 Languaging Services:

  • Translation of interviews and release forms to support your international shoots. 
  • Web and gaming localisation.
  • Foreign language subtitling.
  • Multiple languages combinations available.

Using Take 1 is very simple, just upload files to our secure cloud platform, and our expert team will process them in as little as 12 hours.  Your words.  Your way.

We are very proud to be involved with the PMA and look forward to meeting and working with you in the coming months and years – please don’t hesitate to get in touch as and when you need advice or pricing on any of the above, and don’t forget to mention your PMA membership when booking your job with us !!!
