Interviews and Focus Groups

Pacific Transcription has an extensive network of talented typists experienced in transcribing recordings of interviews and focus groups.  We match the most suitable typists to your specific area of research in order to deliver comprehensive and accurate transcripts.


We offer a range of transcript turnaround options, from sameday/overnight turnaround, to a discounted flexible option. For a full overview of our turnaround options please contact us to obtain our rate sheet and to discuss your individual needs.

Speaker Identification

Upon request we are able to offer speaker identification for focus group recordings. We advise that prior to recording focus group interviews clients contact us for tips on ensuring speakers are clear and identifiable in the recording.  We recommend a speaker log be kept to assist in the speaker identification process.

Specific notes or vocabulary

Any specific instructions (e.g. correct spelling of unusual names or terms) can be added at the time of uploading audio files by clicking the “Notes” icon after the upload is complete.


We can accommodate specific template requirements and will tailor transcripts to your preferred formatting. Pacific Transcription has a number of formatting options which produce transcripts compatible with qualitative analysis software such as NVivo, Leximancer and AtlasTI.


Audio can be uploaded directly from your computer or digital recorder to your individual secure online account. Typists and staff members sign confidentiality agreements upon commencing employment at Pacific Transcription; however, should you wish to supply your own confidentiality agreement to be signed we are able to accommodate this requirement.
