  • Reports and transcripts
  • When each piece of information is vital, transcripts and reports provide the complete proceedings.

  • Revised Report

    Ideal to obtain minutes of  roundtables and seminars.

    11-12 pages per hour of meeting.
    Revised Reports are not simply transcribed accounts of meetings. The flow of words is simplified, and the contents are paraphrased. This reduces the page yield by up to 60%, whilst still giving an excellent record of what was said.

  • Full Transcript

    Ideal to obtain transcripts of  Annual General Meetings (AGM), transcripts of plenary sessions and Financial results.
    16-19 pages per hour of meeting.
    The Full Transcript effectively retains everything that is said (with the exception of hesitations and housekeeping remarks). But emphasis is given to readability – so vocabulary and grammar can be altered to give the smoothest possible reading experience.

  • Verbatim

    Ideal to obtain transcripts of interviews and in a legal context.
    22-23 pages per hour of meeting.
    The Verbatim transcript captures everything that is said in the way it is said. We simply fix basic grammatical errors and remove stutters and hesitations; we retain everything else. You receive the most comprehensive account of your meeting.

  • Legal Verbatim

    It is used exclusively for court transcripts, arbitrations, public inquiries and other legal transcripts. Our legal division, Harry Counsell, is authorised by the Ministry of Justice to transcribe proceedings in any civil court in England and Wales.
    Legal Verbatim is “verbatim as uttered.”

  • Summaries
  • While transcripts are exacting in the content they capture, their longer nature can mean that the message the speaker is trying to convey is lost.

  • Summary documents can be produced from a recording, or purely from an attending writer’s notes, therefore reducing the need to rely on an audio recording

  • Summaries convey the essential information from meetings in as little as two pages per hour. They are ideal for email distribution, publishing online, and easy to act upon quickly

  • Standard Summary

    Ideal to obtain minutes of disciplinary and grievance hearings, minutes of breakout sessions and workshops, minutes of seminars.
    6 pages per hour of meeting.
    The Standard Summary uses rewriting and the selection of primary information over secondary information to achieve its page yield.

  • Brief Summary

    Ideal to obtain minutes of an informal meeting, minutes of a management meeting and where a recording of the meeting is not permitted.
    4 pages per hour of meeting.
    Only the information that goes to the heart of the speaker’s message is retained. We discuss with the client beforehand what issues and themes are most important so that these can be brought out in the document.

  • Executive Summary

    Ideal to obtain minutes of a European Work Council (EWC) or of a meeting that lasted several hours, to publish a summary of the meeting online.
    2 pages per hour of meeting.
    This is an enhanced outline of the meeting, perhaps closest to what is traditionally known as ‘minutes.’ This type of report is normally guided by the interests of the client to include certain information.

  • Thematic Summary
    We assist clients who order multiple documents by drawing the major themes across the whole range of reports into one thematic summary – to the length you specify. Government bodies also use this service to help them analyse and interpret findings drawn from public consultations.

  • How do we ensure our documents are tailored to your needs?
  • We know that you need documents that are accurate and well-written. Documents that won’t require you to spend a lot of time revising. That’s why Ubiqus employs writers, not audio typists. Professional, trained writers whose ability to research gives them an intuitive understanding of your meeting, even when it’s complex or technical. Our writers don’t merely repeat what’s been said; they summarise, paraphrase or transcribe it objectively. Then our editors double-check. 
    Even before we start writing, we listen. Our account managers take your requirements as the starting point, and advise you on the most applicable type of document or depth of coverage in each case. Often, this is as simple as identifying what the document is actually for. Why? Because only written work that is tailored for the purpose has clear value.
