Here’s what our customers have to say:

Researcher, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine:  “It’s been a tricky project what with participants accents and all the technical stuff – not to mention some extra-long interviews and tight deadlines – but you’ve been consistently fabulous! Thanks to you all!

Lecturer, University of Birmingham:  “Thank you so much for all your work on this project. From such a lot of data I would have expected one or two errors to creep in, but the transcriptions have been excellent, and very speedy. Even the recordings I thought were poor quality were done quickly and accurately”

Research Fellow – Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine. “The work is high quality, the turnaround time is always within my time limits, and Melanie Cowley has also shown herself to be helpful, adaptable, and trustworthy. I was very impressed by the confidentiality agreement that is already in place, and the clear and efficient paperwork that accompanies transactions. The relation works very well for me, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company to others…….”

Senior Research Associate – University of Newcastle “Thank you for all the work you have done on my interviews this year. I have been very pleased by the high standard of the work and the reliability of your service. I have recommended you to colleagues. Hope more work comes your way from Newcastle. I’ll be sending another interview for transcription later today…..”

Tony Rice, Director, Equiteq “Thank you for the transcripts and for doing such a good job, I’m quite amazed at how well you’ve taken rambling audio interviews and turned them into sensible and well formatted word documents. It’s been a fast, efficient and value for money service.”

Senior Administrator – National Evaluation of the Children’s Fund “Provided an excellent level of service with extremely accurate transcripts, some of which were recorded in less than perfect circumstances. Return times have always been exceptional with flexibility to suit our active fieldwork team.”

Senior Lecturer – University of Central England “Reliable, efficient and most importantly accurate, particularly given the complexity of some of this material. The turnaround of tapes was very prompt and the whole service was very accommodating to individual needs. I will certainly use their services if I need transcription in the future and would not hesitate to recommend them to others…………”

the British Association for the Advancement of Science. “Provided an excellent level of service, accurate transcripts of the 2 day conference were produced very quickly and our contact there was able to work flexibly to suit our needs……..”
