A. About Us

Scribe Synergy is a company established by a team of legal and business professionals driven by a vision to pioneer the providing of accurate and expert transcription services anchored by uncompromising quality. We currently serve legal firms in and around the Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley.

At present, we employ full time and part-time transcribers. Our transcribers come from various backgrounds. We have retirees which include school teachers and secretaries from legal firms and multi-national corporations. There are also college students, housewives, and many others who prefer to work independently, with flexible working hours.

All our transcribers have undergone training and are skilled and conversant in English and Bahasa Malaysia.

B. What is Transcribing?

Transcribing is the converting of recorded speech from video documents to a typed format on Microsoft Word.

As all Malaysian civil and criminal court proceedings are video recorded, our transcribers listen and view the video recording and type out, in verbatim, what is heard into Microsoft Word.

Our transcribers are fluent in both English and Bahasa Malaysia. They also have good listening and typing skills and are familiar with basic word processing software (Microsoft Word).

C. Recruitment – Training & Working from Home

Before beginning work, our transcribers go through a training process which includes understanding legal language.

On the average, working for 5 hours a day, our transcribers earn between RM3, 000.00 – RM4, 000.00 a month.
