Secure transcription services

Security cleared transcription you can trust

Making sure your confidential documents are secure is a challenge in the modern world, especially when you need to work with an external partner to obtain transcribed records of vital meetings, interviews and policy papers. It’s essential that you can rely on the confidentiality of their service, whether it is security cleared transcription, encrypted data storage, or secure transportation of hard copy documents. Data breaches can be catastrophic, so knowing you can rely on secure transcription services makes all the difference.

K International provides security cleared transcription services you can trust. As an official Crown Commercial Service supplier through RM1092 (Lot 2), we offer you the choice of four levels of government security cleared transcribers, from Baseline Personnel Security Standard (BPSS), through Counter Terrorist Checks (CTC), Security Checks (SC) and Developed Vetting (DV). If you require DV level transcription handling please contact us as soon as possible as the number of cleared specialists in the UK is extremely limited.

Secure & Certified
Transcription Services

We use egress secure data exchange and all our information security & quality processes are accredited to ISO 27001 & 9001 standards.

Secure Courier service and storage

Secure Transit
& Storage

All sensitive physical media is transported via secure courier services provided by TNT. Whilst on site, data is stored on isolated servers with hard copies locked in fireproof safes.

Secure transcription without delay

In some cases, secure transcription can mean an extra layer of administration and delay when it comes to receiving your documents. Whether it involves delays in sending transcription requests due to insecure email systems, delays in obtaining confidential information because of a shortage of suitably vetted staff, or delays in receiving hard copies of documents because of complicated security protocols, constant delays make your team’s work harder.

The good news is that we’ve set up a secure transcription service that’s accredited by the BSI and ISOQAR (ISO 27001:2013; ISO 9001:2015) that enables you to request and receive secure transcripts of your files within a single day (express service), if that’s what you need. We use Egress Switch, a secure email request and delivery system, this means you can benefit from secure encrypted email and file transfer as well as secure online collaboration on confidential projects.

One of Egress Switch’s biggest advantages is that it gives you choice and control over how you share sensitive information. You can decide what recipients can do with the files you share with them, including the ability to forward, print, or locally copy emails and documents. You also have access to a detailed log of these actions, enabling full visibility and control of your data.

Another great feature is that you can access Egress Switch when and where you need it, including integration with existing applications such as MS Outlook, or on desktop or mobile apps. This means your team can request secure transcription via Egress on the move, receiving the confidential document from an appropriately-vetted member of our transcription team on a device of their choice without compromising on speed or security.

If you require hard copies of sensitive documents, we also offer rapid and secure transportation through TNT couriers, with increased security measures such as use of security control centres, vehicle security, security escorts and enhanced site control. All our secure work is handled within the UK without exception.

  • Express Service for Same-Day Turnaround

    When you need rapid, secure transcriptions we can offer a same-day express service through our secure communication system, Egress Switch. Whether you require secure documents in the cloud or secure hard copies by secure courier, our UK-based team will ensure you can access our high quality transcription services without unnecessary delays.

Secure transcription in any language

When you need rapid, secure transcription of files to and from languages other than English you need to leverage a team of expert project managers, translators and language transcription technology to get things done. As well as ensuring that your sensitive files are secure, it’s essential that your transcriptions are of the highest quality. Inaccuracies at this level can prove problematic because they have particularly wide repercussions. All of this makes it all the more important to have a multilingual transcription partner whose services you can rely on.

K International has 30 years of experience delivering language services to the public sector. We offer our clients a multilingual transcription service through Tracklingua, our fully customisable online translation portal. Tracklingua is a bespoke software system developed by our team that allows you to request and receive multilingual transcriptions in one place. Because everything is stored securely in the cloud, Tracklingua significantly reduces your admin load and allows you to track transcription requests by individual users and teams. You can even choose to brand the system for your organisation.

Just like Egress Switch, Tracklingua is customisable and can integrate with your organisation’s existing internal systems. Rather than waiting for quotes or emailing back and forth, you simply upload your file to the cloud, track its progress, and download the completed transcription when it is ready. As an added bonus, Tracklingua is able to handle virtually any file format, so you can upload any document type and we will take care of the rest. You’ll have the secure transcriptions you need on your desk before you know it.
