Realtime / Same Day
If you require a realtime or same day transcript for your hearing, Opus 2 will work with the most experienced court reporters to produce the highest quality record of proceedings. Counsel and instructing solicitors can refer back to earlier evidence via the live realtime transcript and all users (whether in the hearing room or connected remotely) are able to discreetly interact by way of instant messaging. The final version is fully hyperlinked to all documents referenced during proceedings.
At the conclusion of the day's session, Opus 2 uniquely synchronises the audio from the live session to the final transcript. All participants, regardless of their locations, may log in to re-live any moment from the day's proceedings, listening to testimony while reviewing the transcript text in unison.
Opus 2 International offers Consecutive Interpretation, Simultaneous Interpretation and translation services in 180 languages.
Our rotating team-based interpretation helps to maintain the pace of the live proceedings, to reduce fatigue, and to maximise accuracy.
Opus 2 provides ISO-compliant interpretation equipment and technical support and arranges the professional interpreters on the client's behalf.
1. Complete EX107 form
To order a court transcript you need to complete an EX107 form which can be obtained here.
2. Send a copy to the court
Send one copy of the form to the court at which the case was heard and one copy to us including a covering letter detailing when you require the transcript and any appearances or notes on the case which we may find useful when transcribing it.
3. Send via email
The contact details for all courts can be obtained from the HMCS Court Finder. You can send a copy to us via e-mail.
4. We receive recordings
In most cases the court will then send us a recording of the case, although we have a dedicated team who visit and collect recordings several times a day from the High Court and the Central Family Court to help speed up this process. We will notify you at the point of receipt if there is a problem with the audio. We will provide you with a written quotation at this point if you require one.
We specialise in expedited services, offering a range of delivery timeframes to meet our clients' requirements. Whilst standard transcription typically takes up to 12 working days from receipt of audio subject we can tailor transcript delivery to need.
After this time, the transcript can be sent to the address provided. Please include an e-mail address to ensure you receive this in a timely fashion. Judgments need to be approved by the Judge before we can release them.

Audio / Video Transcription

We can also transcribe visual gestures from VHS/DVD in interviews. We have experience in this field in providing transcripts for the police, social services and media.
