Maximise efficiency with the help of real time transcription experts!

February 27, 2023

Most legal professionals recognise the importance of utilising legal transcription services. Finding the right outsourced partner can ensure compliance, drive efficiency, and improve case organisation. However, what is the difference between Legal Transcription and Court Reporting?

While both activities are the process of converting spoken words into text, specific differences exist in the services received and the levels of expertise required.

Legal transcription involves documenting recorded audio/video, typically undertaken by transcriptionists well-versed in legal terminology and procedures. A legal transcriptionist typically takes previously recorded legal information and types an edited version from those recordings. Normally businesses use these services when recordings are not needed urgently or if there are no legal obligations attached to having real time transcripts. In comparison, court reporting involves transcribing live court hearings and creating a verbatim transcription of everything that happens in real time and must be undertaken by highly trained and certified court reporters. Sometimes known as Verbatim Court Proceedings Transcription, the benefits of live court reporting include:

  • Real time recording of all spoken words communicated by everyone during a court or deposition proceeding.
  • Accurate and reliable verbatim transcripts of proceedings by highly trained court reporters.
  • Real time and same day access to digital transcript in the court for the benefit of all involved parties — solicitors, counsel, and judges, including deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals participating in the judicial process.
  • Multilingual transcription – when transcribers are required for hearings being carried out in multiple languages.
