Ilocano Transcription Services
The Philippines is home to more than 180 languages, making it one of the most linguistically diverse countries on the planet. Tagalog, or its standardized version, Filipino, is the most widely spoken language in the nation, often used as a lingua franca. But millions of Filipinos, particularly in the north of the country, speak Ilocano as their first language. We here at TranscriptionServices.com are proud to provide transcription services for Ilocano (alongside other major Filipino languages, like Tagalog, Cebuano, and many more).
Let Us Bring You the Best Ilocano Transcription Services on the Web
Boasting an approximate 6.3 million native speakers, Ilocano isn’t the biggest language in the Philippines—but it is the third-largest native language in the highly multilingual country. It’s native to parts of northern and central Luzon, the northernmost major island in the Philippine archipelago, and is used as a local lingua franca throughout the region by native speakers of languages like Ibanag, Ivatan, Pangasinan, Sambal, and more. Ilocano is also spoken by large communities in the US and Canada, even claiming the title of the third-most common non-English language in Hawaii.
Like nearly every other language native to the Philippines, Ilocano is part of the Austronesian language family, specifically the Philippine branch. As in many other Austronesian languages, Ilocano positions the verb at the beginning of a sentence and employs a great deal of inflection to communicate words’ different grammatical functions. Pronouns are complex, divided into three key cases and featuring both independent forms and dependent forms that must be attached to another word. The grammatical complexity of Ilocano can feel overwhelming to a learner, but we only hire native-speaking Ilocano transcriptionists for our team, so you don’t have to worry. Our team can deliver the best value, whether you’re looking for a transcript in Ilocano or one translated into English.
The Use of Technology in Our Ilocano Transcription Services
AI technology just can’t match the supercomputer that is the human brain when it comes to transcribing audio and video material accurately. But that doesn’t mean that the technology is useless. In fact, it’s a wonderful tool for trained human transcriptionists like our team members, helping them work faster than ever while delivering the same quality as always. That’s why we offer a transcription model that pairs the speed of speech-recognition software with the eagle eyes of our professional transcriptionists.
If you’re worried about all the errors that automated transcription technology may make in your Ilocano transcript, don’t worry. Our human transcriptionists are highly experienced and will carefully pore over the results of any computer programs we use, diligently listening to your Ilocano audio or video recording as they read through the transcript. They’ll ensure accuracy and quality—just faster than if they were to produce your transcript from scratch. But if you prefer that we do generate your transcript from scratch, we can do that too.
Fully Customizable Ilocano Transcription Services to Fit Your Needs
The specifications of your Ilocano transcription project are unique, dependent on your field, the subject matter that your recording deals with, the dialect used in the speech, and a whole host of other factors. We recognize how diverse our clientele is, and that’s why we’ve worked to build a large and flexible team full of Ilocano transcriptionists who specialize in different areas. From academia and business to all facets of the entertainment industry, we’re ready to provide Ilocano transcription services for anyone.
