Transcription Services

Transcription Services  Logo

Take 1 is the UK’s leading media-specialist timed-text and languaging company, and has been providing accurate high-quality transcriptions and translations to the international broadcast/production community for 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.

We have a presence on both US coasts and an office in 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.

We are in the advanced stages of securing CDSA (Content Delivery & Security Association) approval, which will add an industry-recognised security certificate to our already stringent security protocols, thus further protecting your content while it is in Take 1’s care.

Something else that separates us from our competitors is our tech-forward thinking, and the recently launched new version of our transcription software – LIBERTY – is the latest step forwards in our ever-evolving technical capability. Liberty renders your transcripts and post scripts as XML, which enables us to deliver hundreds of different layouts so you can simply match your required style and delivery specs.

You can check us out a bit more here – – and below is a list of our core services:

Transcription (verbatim or intelligent transcribing of interviews/rushes/raw footage to assist in your edit).

Post-production scripts (for broadcast deliverables/foreign sales/compliance).
Re-versioning scripts (for editorial/compliance/slot-length etc.)
Translation (all of the above services plus kit lists, release forms, filming permits etc. for your exotic shoot).
Sub-titles and captions to US Network specs.

We are very proud to be involved with the PMA once again 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 !!!
