Need accurate transcripts? read this first
Did you know there are two types of accuracy? I know that sounds odd, but stay with me a minute. Assume you accidentally said this while preaching a sermon:
"When Abraham broke the tablets with the Ten Commandments..."
If you said those exact words and I transcribed those exact words, then your transcript would be accurate, right? The only problem is, Abraham didn't break the tablets; Moses did. So is your transcript really "accurate"?
Pastors make these kinds of mistakes all the time. They say "Old Testament" when they meant to say "New Testament." They say, "In 1 John it says..." when they meant to say, "In the gospel of John it says..." They say "King Saul" when they meant to say "King David." They say, "We're going to read verses 3-8" when they meant to say, "We're going to read verses 4-9." And on and on and on.
At Intentional Reach, we don't define accuracy as transcribing what you said; we define accuracy as transcribing what you meant to say. Here are a few examples of ways we ensure your transcripts are accurate:
- We look up every Bible verse to make sure the correct chapter and verse are cited.
- We verify the spelling of every name you mention. For instance, if your wife's name is Cathi, we won't put Kathy.
- We verify the correct spelling of Hebrew and Greek words.
- We verify the accuracy of quotes. In other words, if you say, "A.W. Tozer said...," we'll look it up, and if Charles Spurgeon actually said the quote, we'll put the correct name.
- We look up every website address you mention. For instance, if you direct people to your website and accidentally say ".com" instead of ".org," we'll put the correct address and even hyperlink the address so people can click on the link in the transcript and go directly to the website.
Note: We will only change words that are verifiably incorrect; we will not mess with your choice of words in any other context. For instance, if you say, "I wore a jacket to the ballgame," we would never change that to read, "I wore a hoodie to the ballgame." That is considered heavy editing, and we don't do that.
So what kind of accuracy do you need?
If you simply need a transcript that's sort of accurate and kind of says what you meant to say, there are plenty of general transcription companies online that can help you. They're cheap, fast, and a dime a dozen. But if you need a transcript you can be proud of, that communicates your message clearly and accurately and effectively, then choose the Intentional Reach transcription team. We can't wait to help you!
