Transcription Services in Arabic

Conferences, interviews, podcasts, corporate videos, etc. Whatever the original content, our transcription agency Optiwords can provide you with professional native transcribers to transcribe your audio files into Arabic in text format.


Transcribing content in Arabic with Optiwords

With 295 million native speakers, Arabic is the fifth most spoken language in the world. Given the complexity of this language and the many dialects it contains (Moroccan, Tunisian, Algerian, Egyptian, literary Arabic, etc.), audio or video transcription in Arabic is particularly delicate.

With Optiwords, you can entrust the transcription of your audio and video recordings into Arabic to experienced professional transcribers who are native Arabic speakers with a perfect command of the language, solid writing skills, and a high level of attention to detail.

You will be guaranteed a faithful, fluid, and high-quality Arabic transcription, which is free of typos and clumsy language.

We can provide transcriptions in literary Arabic and dialectal Arabic.


The different types of transcription in Arabic

Here are the different Arabic transcription services we offer:

Full transcription (verbatim)

This form of transcription aims to reproduce the audio exchanges as accurately as possible in writing. It is not only a matter of transcribing the content word for word, but also including a certain amount of background noise, applause, hesitation, and laughter, etc. The transcriber will also include any repetitions and awkwardness specific to oral language, and will fill in the temporal markers in the text.

Audio and video transcription

We offer Arabic transcription services for all types of audio and video content, such as minutes, meetings, general assemblies, podcasts, journalistic interviews, scientific interviews, etc.

Interview transcription

We are also able to carry out the transcription in Arabic of all types of interviews, with two or more parties, whether it is for scientific interviews; sociological interviews; telephone interviews; interviews with an expert; or professional or academic interviews...

Legal transcription

Some of our professional Arabic transcribers have specific legal know-how, and as such have mastered the vocabulary specific to the sector. They can therefore transcribe your Arabic legal audio content with the utmost precision: contracts, legal documents, witness statements, court proceedings, affidavits, etc.

Medical transcription

We also offer medical transcription services in Arabic, to convert medical content such as colloquia, symposia, medical reports, voice notes, diagnoses, etc. Your recording is entrusted to a professional native transcriber with specific know-how in medical transcription.


Answers to your questions about professional Arabic transcription

You can send us your audio or video in Arabic in the format of your choice: MPEG; AVI; WAV; AIFF; MP3; AAC; MP4; AVI; MOV... However, remember to check the quality of the recording beforehand: it must be perfectly intelligible and free of crackling or echoes, so that the transcriber can use the file.

The rates for our Arabic transcriptions vary according to a number of factors, such as the length of the audio or video; the level of technicality of the content (medical, legal...), and any other specific requests such as urgent requests or translations of the transcription etc.

To transcribe an audio file into text for free, you can either choose to do it manually (a time-consuming process, however) or use automatic transcription software. However, the quality is rarely good with these free tools and the final transcription is often shaky and unreliable. The safest way to get a high-quality Arabic transcription is to entrust your audio file to an experienced professional transcriber.
