Appen is a leading digital, audio and video transcription specialist offering a range of transcription and recording services, with particular expertise in secure transcription solutions.
Mendip Media Services first opened in 1993 as a Limited Company and was acquired by Appen, in September 2016. It originally had an educational focus and developed progressively into the legal/corporate sectors over the early years. Our ethos was to establish a professional organisation, offering a secure, flexible service. We’ve been established for nearly 25 years and are now a leading transcription company with an international and legal focus. Through Appen we can access expertise in 150 languages. More than 50 experienced, security-cleared staff work from our offices in Exeter and 40 freelance transcribers work across the UK. Each year, we produce more than 12,000 transcripts and attend hundreds of meetings, inquiries, depositions and hearings.
What is a transcription service?
A transcription service converts either live or recorded speech into written or electronic text. Many businesses and organisations use transcription services, for example, for legal or medical purposes. We provide the full range of transcription services – find out more here. We also provide a range of other services, including copy typing and on-site recordings.
High quality and secure
We know that the security of data is paramount when outsourcing confidential assets, so our ethos is to provide both a high-security and high-quality service. We do not compromise on this, and we are proud that security and quality are at the heart of what we do. In 1999 we achieved ISO 9001 certification which underpins all our quality assurance and compliance procedures. In June 2012 we were awarded ISO 27001 certification, which was an endorsement of our commitment to the ongoing development and maintenance of our Information Security Management System.
