At SpeakWrite, we understand that many municipalities face a growing challenge of documenting Spanish statements and interviews. We are here for you. SpeakWrite Translation & Transcription allows officers to focus on police work, while saving the department time and money.

The Challenge

When a department has a suspect or witness interviewed by a bilingual officer, that statement is usually recorded, but having it transcribed and translated can cost hundreds of dollars and take weeks to receive a transcript. Bilingual interviews, particularly Spanish speaking, are just part of the job. Every department has a way to conduct them with their existing staff, but there has been a real problem completing the loop. There has been no timely and affordable way to make them part of the record. Most departments don’t have the resources or the bandwidth to accomplish this in-house, and until now, sending it out for translation & transcription has been prohibitively expensive. Until now.

The Solution

SpeakWrite’s translation & transcription service offers the most affordable translation & transcription available to law enforcement at just $9 per minute compared with competitor’s $20-$25 per minute. Just as important, the completed interview which features a full transcript of the original Spanish interview alongside an English translation of the text verbatim, is returned in 10 days, often sooner. Your department will have access to our unlimited pool of typists, fluent in conversational Spanish, 24/7. SpeakWrite Spanish Translation &Transcription allows officers to focus on police work, while saving departments time and money.
