Document to Document Transcription Services, Conversion Services

Document to document transcription services, also know as text to text conversion, is more common than you think. Older handwritten files often need converting to Microsoft Word format so that they can be easily edited, saved, emailed, searched or put into a database system. Simply scanning a document saves it in the original format, but that document isn’t searchable by key terms and can often be illegible depending on the quality of the scan. Plus, it obviously cannot be edited. Document to document transcription of a document into Word expands its uses and makes it more universally accessible.
The National Archives Transcription Project is a great example of document to document transcription. Historical handwritten documents are typed by volunteers typing document to document transcription so that The Archives can create an online database that is searchable. This helps further educational or research goals, as once the database is completed a student researching the Civil War could use it to search through thousands of documents by entering in the keywords “Civil War” (or “Battle of Gettysburg” or “Lincoln” or anything else they wanted to research.) Access to this first-hand source material is unprecedented, and document to document transcription is making it happen.
Other document to document transcription projects could include typing handwritten client notes, memoirs, transferring a PDF document into Microsoft Word (if you don’t have the expensive conversion program) or entering past sales records into Word or Excel.
