Your requirements - your transcription

Together we establish which scientific transcription system is best suited to your needs. We can use established transcription systems (Hoffmann-Riem, Kallmeyer/Schütze, the GAT system with basic or refined transcripts, etc.) or respond to individual requirements.

Basic transcript of single and group interviews, simple transcription, Sprachdschungel Standard

Easy to read forms in conventional German, with smoothing of common speech or dialect, minor incidents and non-verbal events, pauses and interjections (um, er..) can be added if specified. The focus here is on readability, learnability, and a rapid turnaround. This transcription rules prioritise the content of the proceedings.

Fine transcript of single and group interviews, detailed transcription

Our transcripts follow establish systems (viz. Hoffmann-Riem, Bohnsack, etc.) or your own guidelines for transcription. You will need a detailed transcript that follows complex rules if the subsequent analysis is going to focus on more than the semantic content of the proceedings. For instance, further details relating to prosody can be recorded, including variations in tone, accents, volume and speed of the proceedings. Sometimes, a phonetic transcript is supplied (viz. for research into dialects) or complex non-verbal phenomena are presented.
