Interview Transcription: How to Do?

Preparation for your interview transcription

Preparation here is key as it is for many things, the better prepared you are for your interview the easier it will go. Research your subject before the interview so that you know what you are going to be asking about. Prepare your questions but remember that you are looking to ask open questions that are going to get them talking. Make sure that you actually listen to what the person says and are able to pick up on their responses to ask other relevant questions rather than just jumping to the next question on the list. Use two recording devices and ensure that they are fully charged and that you know how to use them; while it is fine to use the record function on your mobile phone do make sure that you can transfer the file from the phone and that the phone has the memory to store a lengthy interview.

Conduct your interview

Test your recording devices to make sure that they are recording correctly and you can hear the subjects voice clearly as well as your own. Listen carefully to what the interviewee has to say and be sure to follow up on any answers that require additional explanation; too many interviewers will just ask questions from a list like firing bullets. Try to develop a rapport with the subject so that the interview is able to flow and they actually talk to you rather than just provide short factual answers to questions that are closed. Take notes as you speak by all means but ensure that you remain focused on the actual conversation, don’t get lost in writing your notes.

Transcribing the interview

How to do typing and transcribing an interview will very much depend on the purpose of the interview. If this is an academic transcription or even a legal interview transcription it may be very important that you follow some very rigid formats and methods. Ensure that you follow these with regards to the specific requirements for what you should transcribe and what you can omit such as pauses or wrong starts. Academic and legal transcriptions will likely be verbatim transcriptions which mean that you will be writing down everything that was said.

If you are typing online for use within a magazine or another article then you also need to be sure of your facts, just because your subject has said something does not mean that they are right and you do not want to cause problems by repeating something that is false. You should also be careful about other people’s right to privacy; it is fine to edit a comment to protect another person’s identity if it is better left out of your interview transcription.
