Government Transcription Services

Accurate documentation is one of the most important aspects of running a government entity. It is also one of the most challenging aspects of running a government entity. Staff meeting memos, legislative sessions, regulatory hearings, and dozens of meetings at the local, state, and federal levels occur day in and day out. Legal transcription services for the Government help ease this burden, as employees must get what was said in writing, usually for public dissemination.

Ditto’s government transcription services create accurate, high-quality, verbatim transcripts that can be integrated into any government agency’s workflow.

Benefits Of Ditto’s Services For Federal And Local Government Agencies

Outsource your transcription and captioning needs to Ditto and experience these perks: 


Sign up for Ditto’s professional transcription services to avoid the bureaucratic nightmare of fixing inaccurate transcripts. We guarantee 99% accuracy on all transcription projects, be it quiet depositions or noisy contentious government sessions. 


Government data must be kept secure and confidential with strict security protocols—I don’t think anyone disagrees. Several regulatory bodies, such as the Office for Civil Rights and the FBI, in the US, can help you look for the most secure service providers. One great example is CJIS, which protects criminal justice information and outlines what kind of security third-party providers must meet. Having CJIS compliance is one of the biggest considerations in providing transcription services for law enforcement agencies. 

Healthcare also has HIPAA, which protects the privacy and confidentiality of patient information, including those handled by health departments. 

Ditto Transcripts is both HIPAA and CJIS-compliant for your security and peace of mind. Our security protocols are regularly maintained and updated, so your highly confidential recordings are safe with us.

Quality Control And Flexibility

Accuracy isn’t a one-step process: it starts from when the transcriber types the first word to when the final editor signs off on the transcript for sending. Select providers, like Ditto, offer stringent quality control processes, including proofreading and editing, to maintain the accuracy and integrity of transcribed documents.

There’s also a consideration for flexibility, as different federal and local agencies have different requirements. 

We’ve worked with many government clients and have extensive experience transcribing official documents. We offer the best blend of accuracy and customizability to meet your transcription needs. 

Turnaround Time

“Good enough for government work” won’t cut it when providing government transcription services. Ditto offers blazing-fast turnaround times for projects of moderate length. Get your transcripts in 24 hours or less. 

Note: Bulk transcription projects over 25 hours of audio may take one to two weeks.


We get it: the budget for transcription might not be the top priority in city council meetings. State and local governments might also have different priorities and either need transcripts yesterday or can afford to wait longer. 

Aside from accuracy, quality, and security and confidentiality, Ditto Transcripts offers different pricing structures for your needs. Whether you need transcripts ASAP and are willing to pay for them, or if you prefer more economical options, we offer reasonable prices for the highest quality services. 

Translation Services

Need a document translated from English to Spanish? We’ll take care of it. Our translation service offers the same high quality, accuracy, and affordability as our transcription services, so you don’t need to shop around for your different needs. 

No Long-Term Commitments

No need to jump into a year-long contract. We offer pay-as-you-go options with speedy turnaround times so that you remain in complete control of your transcription requirements. 

Customer Support

Transcription is not a one-and-done deal. We support our clients even after the final transcripts are completed. The work might require adjustments or corrections or might have questions answered. We have a dedicated team of professionals who maintain our industry-leading customer service. So, if you have any questions, feel free to get in touch, and we’ll get right on it. 

Transcript Certification

Government transcription might require certification for different uses, and transcripts can only be certified by US-based transcriptionists with proven track records. These certified transcripts might also be used in court proceedings and may require the transcriber to swear their validity and accuracy under oath. I don’t think I need to tell you that getting a foreign transcriber from a foreign vendor to the US for such a proceeding will be quite a pain.

Ditto’s fully US-based operations ensure that you will get transcripts certified for use anywhere in the good ol’ USA.

Ditto Transcripts is transparent about how they operate and can show proof about every claim they make like insurance, security, and compliance. And my investigators were able to be out in the field instead of typing interview transcripts all day.
