As a life story writer, I need hours of my clients' interviews transcribed and I need the transcription to be spot on. I have tried so many different services locally, on Fiverr and other online companies. TranscriptionPanda is by FAR AND AWAY the very best. I am so grateful to have found them. They are making my job so much easier. The Panda cost compared to some other online services is a little higher, but don't let that scare you away. I've wasted so much money trying to "save" $50 here and $100 there and ended up with such a crappy finished product. You get what you pay for. I should have started here.
This is the second time I have ordered large volume transcription service through TranscriptionPanda. After the last one for my dissertation data, this experience is consistently joyful, characterized by timely courteous response, customizable service package, and admirable accuracy. I will go for Panda again in this transcript-happy era.
Not only was my request acknowledged in under 5 minutes, I told how long it would take to determine whether my urgent request could be handled. A few moments later, I received an affirmative with a very reasonable quote. Even the payment process was flawless—secure, no bugs (as I've had at times) no confusing windows. My transcriptions were available as they became ready and came in well within my window. I heartily recommend TranscriptionPanda!
I have used TranscriptionPanda three times in the last several months and intend to continue to use them for my oral history work. I am very impressed with their competitive pricing, their professionalism their accurate transcriptions. However, what I value the most is their personal outreach and easy accessibility. I have corresponded directly with the person transcribing my interviews, and I am grateful that the transaction wasn't an automated experience. I am so grateful for this personal approach and their outstanding service.
I sent in an interview that touched on some obscure science topics, and I was very impressed with the results. Even though the transcriber did not catch all the terms, they got most and left clear time stamps for the ones they missed.

I've now submitted three jobs for transcription through TranscriptionPanda and I couldn't be more satisfied. The turnaround is fast, and though it's a bit more expensive than some other online services, my experience has been far superior. I'm absolutely willing to pay more in order to work with quality transcriptionists and to have real customer support, as I do with TranscriptionPanda.
With this last job, I had a shift in deadline after I submitted the audio through the website and the TranscriptionPanda customer service team was amazing: they worked with me to shift the deadline, even getting me the transcript earlier than I asked for and didn't up the cost. I was so appreciative and I will absolutely continue to use TranscriptionPanda for all of my transcription needs.
Hi, I've used you guys a lot and have always received great transcripts. This last one I received however, seemed to have some errors and wasn't aligned with AP style guide (example, one space rather than two after a period), some grammar problems, etc. Normally I don't have a problem with it, but this one seemed sloppy and I wanted you guys to know. I'll definitely be back though! Thank you!
The team at TranscriptionPanda is fantastic. William picked up the phone personally each time I called, which was often, and talked me through my orders, which I always had managed to mess up somehow. He also asked the transcribers to write up their impressions of the recordings because he knew it would help me with the book I'm working on, which was so beyond necessary. Their thoughts were so insightful, funny, and helpful. And the transcripts are flawless. A great experience from beginning to end. Thank you.
TranscriptionPanda receives my highest recommendations. Their speedy and accurate service exceeded my expectations. Well worth the money. I would recommend them to anyone. Today it's seldom that a business rates 5 stars. Transcription Panda is ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.
Over the past month, I have used TranscriptionPanda and had a great experience. They are extremely customer focused and go out of their way to be responsive to your needs. They are honest even correcting me when I overestimated the number of minutes and therefore the costs of a project. Great resource. Honest people!
I chose Transcription Panda based on the positive reviews, and they did not disappoint!. In fact, they exceeded my expectations. I had over a dozen interviews and several focus groups that needed transcribing. Their turn-around time was great, and the quality of the transcripts were excellent. Natalia was amazing... remarkably customer focused, responsive, and proactive. I will use Transcription Panda again whenever I have something requiring transcription. I highly recommend them.
I sent this transcription to a competitor, thinking that price would help, but they turned us down based on the length and the difficult audio. I was worried on the 2nd try with TranscriptionPanda and Natalia knocked it out of the park with detail and timings! I did not have to follow up or worry about when I would see the transcript next. Well done, you saved me!
I would highly recommend TranscriptionPanda for your transcription needs - they are very reliable and accurate. Very easy to work with and the turnaround is quick! Thank you for making my job easier!
Working with TranscriptionPanda was the best experience I have ever had with a transcription service! Their representatives were always professional and attentive in answering my many questions. The prices were fair, the process was easy to follow, and the end product was delivered on time and was super accurate! I couldn't be happier!! Thank you!!
I needed three interviews containing a lot of industry specific technical content transcribed. I was extremely pleased with the quality, accuracy and quick turnaround of the completed projects. I would definitely recommend your services!
I was looking for a way to get some personal dictations transcribed in order to write a memoir for the family. I found TranscriptionPanda online. They were very helpful. Honest with billing. The reports came much quicker than promised. I am very happy with their service and plan to use them whenever I can.
Phenomenon Post has used TranscriptionPanda a handful of times and we are pleased with the results and efficiency of their work. We have received our transcription within the expected date and are satisfied to know that our script is priority and dealt with in a professional manner.
I found this service to be tremendously cost-effective. The transcription was very accurate and done within the timeframe requested. I will definitely be using TranscriptionPanda again, whenever I need more done. Highly recommended.
This company provides great transcripts and in the timeline that they promise. I've only had one small spelling error out of all the transcripts I've received back, so they do a fantastic job. Great customer service, too.
I found you guys to be reliable and very helpful when working with me and transcribing my recordings, which I know can be difficult since they are field recordings. I plan on continuing to do business with you guys during the duration of the work I am doing which my direct contact with your staff, Natalie, is aware of for an indefinite period of time. Thank you!!!
Very efficient service. I needed someone to transcribe audio recordings. A relative left before he died. Having relatives listen to the recorded voice might have been difficult so I wanted to have the recordings transcribed.
I needed some transcribing help with my thesis work, and Tatiana was absolutely amazing. Not only was she quick to get back with me, she also emailed me any questions that arose. She was courteous, friendly, and professional. I will recommend to my cohort and anyone else that needs a good transcription service. Thank you!
We here at the Health Department have been so impressed with the level of professionalism and the high quality of work that has been provided by TranscriptionPanda. We look forward to working with you for all future projects. Thank you!!
I am in the process of writing a book about three expeditions I took to the Hidden Lands of Tibet in 1994, 1995 & 1997. Back then we had micro-recorders and I had hours of notes in an audio format. These notes were instrumental to my book so I had the tapes digitized. When I listened to them I was concerned because the recordings were made in extreme conditions and my sentences were sometimes/many times not easy to understand. I crossed my fingers and sent the digitized files to Transcription Panda. I could not be happier with the jobs they have done for me on every single file I sent them. Some were rush orders and they delivered as promised. I will definitely continue to use Transcription Panda and would highly recommend them to anyone considering the transcription services they offer.
We have a high volume of interviews that are constantly being transcribed. Transcription Panda accommodated to all our needs and constantly responded to our feedback. Can't ask for more. We look forward to our continued relationship. Awesome customer service.
TranscriptionPanda from day one have delivered! Excellent turn around time. Friendly and caring staff. The quality of the work is absolutely outstanding. Their work surpasses any of the other companies I've used. TranscriptionPanda is stuck with me. They are an awesome company.
Fast, efficient and accurate. Excellent service. I am so pleased to have found Transcription Panda. Their service is excellent. The transcriptions have been spot on which has made our task in the editing room that much easier. Thank you Natalia.
Launching a podcast is simple, doing it well is complex. Transcriptions of episodes were really important right from the start for the Remote Works Podcast and TranscriptionPanda was whom I settled on after much research. They're a key part of every episode's production and the easiest part by far! After audio post-production of an episode is finished, I submit an order with a link to the audio (or upload it sometimes) and I receive an accurate transcription promptly in return. It truly is the least complex part of the production process. I highly recommend them. A topnotch customer experience!
I have found the very best transcription service EVER! From my very first order, TranscriptionPanda not only delivered, they also CONSISTENTLY went the extra mile. In one case, my transcription ended up being a few minutes less than I originally thought and paid for. I received a personal email and a immediate refund of the extra. And that was only the beginning. I was working within a tight deadline, requested the rush service, and they delivered -- on time. My email communications with Natalia were always a delight to receive -- clear, respectful, and KIND. TranscriptionPanda has my business for a lifetime. I cannot recommend them highly enough! THANK YOU, PANDA!!!
As a professional journalist and producer, I've used transcription services since the 1970s. Natalia ** and her crew are the best, bar none. They're now my go-to for transcriptions. It's so easy to upload an audio file or to send a link to a video. Natalia communicated with me personally via email, turned my job around fast with the formatting I requested, accurate and clean, ready to be posted. And the prices are very competitive, considering the high quality of the work and the excellent customer service. I recommend TP to all my colleagues.
