Since 1985, American Language Services (AML-Global) has been a premier provider of language services in the law enforcement industry. As the world diversifies, the need for accurate law enforcement transcription continues to grow.
Law Enforcement investigations can take months, even years of hard work on the agents’ parts. Often it is transcribed and translated documents that form key points of evidence in these cases. Even one typo or misstep can be enough to bring the whole thing tumbling down. Because of this, it’s important that your transcriptions are done quickly, accurately, and securely.

What Actually is a Transcription?

Let’s start by defining transcription. Transcription is the process of converting audio and video to written text. If this involves more than one language, then the transcripts may be produced in both languages. With today’s advanced technology, transcription work has become much more accurate and diverse. The end result can be delivered in a wide variety of both physical and digital formats.

The Two Types of Transcription

  • Verbatim: This is the most common type of transcription. This variation requires the transcriptionist to convert the material from audio to text, word for word, without any summarization.
  • Summarized: This type allows the transcriptionist to cut unnecessary information from the audio. This is typically used when the client is in a time crunc
