What is Legal Transcription?

Legal transcription has been recognised as an efficient and professional way to manage legal records, and this is the reason why law and legal firms are using it more frequently. In very simple terms, legal transcription is the act of listening to spoken words of any legal proceeding and then transcribing the same into printed or document format. The popularity and convenience of legal transcription has given impetus to this industry, which is growing rapidly.

What can be Transcribed?

Just about any spoken word of a legal proceeding can be transcribed by professionals. This could include:

• Deposition
• Testimony
• Official court hearing
• Client letter
• Legal briefs
• Interrogation
• General legal correspondence

Legal transcription can be produced from audio tapes, videos or digital recordings. However, many professionals in the legal field still tend to use dictation and Dictaphones as a way to make recordings of the spoken word, and this is then handed over to the transcribe for transcription.

Who Requires Legal Transcription?

Legal transcription is used by big, small and medium-sized law firms and solicitors every day. Whether it is for court proceedings, regular correspondence between solicitors or law firms and their clients, witness statements, memos or correspondence between law firms or solicitors and a third party, legal transcription has made record keeping a seamless task.
