Many law offices and legal departments in companies around the world are catching on to an incredible time and money-saving solution: dedicated, outsourced legal transcription services. While it may seem like the most obvious solution to hire a single transcriptionist to get the job done, tapping into a full team of experts with a proven, secure transcription process can save professionals time, energy, and a lot of money.
Whether your legal and corporate requirements include transcripts of HR and claims interviews, hearings and depositions, administrative documents, legal document translations, interviews or other communications, there are several ways that specialized, outsourced legal transcription services can directly benefit law practices and corporate teams.
1. Keep information confidential
100% confidentiality comes with the legal territory — without secure legal transcription, private client and internal information can be at risk of being breached. We offer first-rate protection with an algorithm completely unique to the industry. With this voice-to-text algorithm, complicated recorded video and audio files are split into segmented pieces, called micro-tasks. Through this, our platform ensures that legal transcriptionists have access to only a very small portion of a project. Whatsmore, all our transcriptionists are fully vetted and accustom to signing NDAs as per client requirements.
2. Digitally organize and manage files
When key information — whether it be corporate or client-based — needs to be accessed, faster is always better. By transcribing audio content for your law office or legal department, you’ll effectively be able to search for, and locate, the correct bits and pieces as quickly as possible. For offices making the move to a more digital system, this is incredibly helpful for indexing case or project information for immediate recall and efficient report redaction.
3. Consistently save money
Why pay more money to have an in-house transcriptionist doing all of the work when you can access a full team of legal transcription professionals for even less? Outsourcing transcription projects can save legal teams a vast amount of money each year, no matter if they are high volume, need specialized styling or super fast turnaround delivery. We offer customized project packages, low-cost transcription options, and other great perks to make every penny go that much further.
4. Access customized formatting
Every department and team have different styling preferences, and we work tirelessly to ensure that every formatting-related desire is met. We provide several standardized format choices, like accurate speaker identification (even for multiple speakers), verbatim wording options and timestamps, as well as custom stylizing on a project-by-project basis. No matter how specific and detailed your legal transcripts need to be, your dedicated team of transcriptionists will follow every preference to the tee.
5. Reduce overall workload
By taking advantage of outsourced legal transcription services, law groups and corporate legal departments will see improvements to their productivity almost instantaneously. With the ability to get the highest quality legal transcripts out there without spending the internal time and effort to obtain them, legal professionals can save valuable time and expended energy, and be able to actively concentrate on more important work.
