Existing Transcription Formats

The design of an individual transcription format, the training of a transcriber group and the setup of the transcription process takes a lot of time and effort. Therefore you might also consider using an already existing format: or even to out-source the whole transcription process to an institution that is specialized in that task. The latter is very advisable if you are working on a foreign language and do not have any native speakers on your staff.
