The only confidential transcription company that specializes in qualitative research

Your work is too important take chances with a vendor that can’t protect your data. 

There are transcription companies that promise confidentiality, but they don’t have the systems in place to deliver on it. Some even send work up to a global network of freelance workers who operate from crowd-shared workspaces (who-knows-where?).

What is a confidential transcription service?

With Research Transcriptions, you avoid the confidentiality risks of public co-working spaces in global work pools. You avoid the stress of not knowing who is doing your work. And where. 

Instead, you get a partner you know and trust.

Put your security officer in touch with us. We’ll answer any questions she/he has and provide all the information they need.
