‘Legal Transcription’ is a commonly used term for professional translators and stenographers. Many of you are aware of the process of legal transcription but aren’t sure what it is called. Legal Transcription is a process of transcribing any type of legal hearing or proceeding from the spoken word into a written document. Legal transcription helps in improving the work-flow and maintaining the facts, dates, quotes that are easily accessible in text format.
The rapidly growing industry of legal transcription is not just limited to the transcription of depositions, official court hearings, testimonies, interrogations, client letters and legal briefs; the source material for legal transcription can range from audio tapes to video footages to digital recordings. The process of legal transcription is climacteric in nature and requires a professional transcriber with a law background. It starts with the transciber reviewing the source audio/video material; he/she carefully listens to the source material and transcribes it into a written format. Every word, nuances of speech patterns, grammatical errors and slangs remain the same in the transcription as they were in the source file. However, in order to make a legal document or brief out of the source material, the transcriber needs to pay all the attention to correct legal words and phrases, grammar and professional documentation.
Further, the transcript is reviewed and proofread by another transcriber or a proofreader to double-check accuracy and quality of the legal transcription. The proofreader might alter the transcript to ensure the grammatical integrity and more accurate legal terms if needed. The legal transcripts are then delivered to the client in the desired format – documents or multi-media. The legal transcription process is highly confidential and must be practiced by professionals with a strong command over languages as well as a sense of ethics.
