I am indebted to Ralph Noe and his team at Daily Transcription. I was in a pinch, needed a dialogue list for an international sale, and Ralph and his team delivered one on an incredibly fast schedule. It was accurate, typo-free, done with an exceptional level of detail, and exactly what we needed. I will definitely return to Ralph and Daily Transcription for any of my transcription or dialogue needs moving forward.

We have been incredibly happy with the service, accuracy and turnaround times provided by DTS. I have lost count of how many projects for which DTS has provided detailed As Broadcast Scripts and captions. The communication with our salesperson, Ralph Noe, and his team is excellent.
