Schlesinger Associates provides transcription of focus groups, in-depth interviews or any other kind of qualitative study. Quite simply, we deliver a fast service with precision results.

Quality guaranteed

Before we deliver your transcript, each file is quality checked for accuracy and consistency.  Our team is fully US based and prepared to deliver your completed project in about two business days.

Special features

  • Our standard 'verbatim' transcript excludes unnecessary or extraneous words.
  • Speaker ID's:  We can indicate the first name of each participant as they speak throughout the entire document.
  • Timestamps: We can add timestamps throughout your transcript at 3, 5 or 10-minute intervals.
  • Transcript highlighting: No need to trudge through pages of transcripts to pinpoint keywords or phrases. Let us do that for you.
  • Word clouds. An ideal feature to give presentations a unique visual impact. A representation of the most discussed terms in a study.  We provide one word cloud for each transcript document plus one collaborative word cloud for the entire set of research.


If you do not require verbatim transcripts, we offer note-taking services from your audio recordings providing a non-verbatim, abridged account of your research.

Straightforward rates

Our standard transcription (two-day delivery of MS Word verbatim transcripts) rate is $150 per hour of sound and is not  affected by the number of respondents nor the topic of research.
