A professional, reliable UK transcription service.

I’m Nadine Loxham, the proud owner and chief transcriber at Manchester Transcription Services – an independent transcription service in the UK. I’m the person you’ll talk to on the phone and the contact for all new clients.
I carry out most of the transcription work, supported by a small team of trusted UK-based associates I call on for assistance during busy periods and on projects with short deadlines.

We use our initiative to provide efficient, confidential transcription services with the professionalism and flexibility you’d expect from someone with senior level administrative experience. The main benefit for clients is that you only pay for the time you use – no paid coffee breaks, national insurance, sick pay or holiday pay.

Virtual PA Secretarial Transcription services

How I became a Transcriber

Remember cassettes and dictaphones? When I started out as a PA, managers would send me miniature cassette tapes in the post to transcribe. In the 90s, we moved on to using CDs.

Thankfully, methods of recording have moved on (we now use digital audio files securely uploaded to our website), but the skills needed to deliver an efficient and accurate transcription service have not changed. It takes strong listening skills, precision and attention to detail, intuition, and in some cases, knowledge of technical language.

I set up Manchester Transcription Services in 2006 following 20 years as a senior level PA in several large organisations. My experience of providing remote support to executives was my inspiration for the service I now offer.

My first client was a London advertising agency. I still remember the feeling of accomplishment I got from being able to help them out by doing something I enjoy. Every project is an opportunity to learn something new and to simplify a process for the client. My regular clients now include personal injury solicitors, HR teams, university students, professors and researchers.


How it works

Transcription is charged per audio minute. With a 24-hour turnaround for verbatim and non-verbatim transcripts, we usually transcribe from digital audio files with the odd CD thrown in for good measure. We tailor our support to provide what you need, when you need it.

All audio files are stored securely whilst we work on them and then permanently deleted from our server once the project is complete.

M P, East of England Development Agency

Absolutely professional to the core. Nadine and her team delivered a particularly difficult brief on time and to the highest standard. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nadine to colleagues and would certainly use this service again, confident that what was required would be delivered on time and to the highest professional standard.

S N, Simpson Burgess Nash

I would like to thank you personally for all the help and assistance you gave recently and to advise you that we were appreciative of the prompt and efficient way in which you undertook the project for us.


Reliable, efficient and recommended

T C, Ethical Management Consulting

An extremely efficient and responsive PA service. Nadine understands the requirements of the SME sector and provides a top class service that delivers when you need it. I am confident to recommend her because my experience shows that she prioritises us so we think we are getting her all to ourselves. And she never promises what she can’t deliver so you know you are in safe hands.

M H, SoftSpot IT Services

After spending hours amending presentation documents for a new project, I approached Nadine to proof read and edit my work. Nadine quickly returned the work fully corrected and with extensive edits and suggestions all for the good. I should have sent them over much earlier, it would have saved me a lot of time. Fantastic value.

W M, Research Psychologist

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the great job you did with my recording. Can I just add that the service provided by Manchester Transcription was of an excellent standard, not just the finished transcript but also the way my enquiries were dealt with in a prompt and efficient manner. Also, Nadine, your friendly approach just tops it all. I will certainly be recommending your service to my colleagues and I will come back to you with other work in the future. Once again, I appreciate your work, many thanks.

S F, Pluck Andrew Solicitors

Thoroughly professional and would recommend you to any firm who asked. Hope to bring you further work in the future.

H W, Ethical Management Consulting

Nadine provided virtual office management and PA services to Ethical Management Consulting during a period of transition and growth. She expertly worked within the core team with myself and the Managing Director, holding together the administrative side of operations (including support to associate consultants) to enable us to provide excellent services to clients and grow the business. Nadine is efficient, trustworthy, easy to work with and works incredibly well under pressure in a virtual office environment. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a professional PA service.

F F, Brainbox Research Ltd

You’ve always been fantastic for us, and have turned round things really quickly when we need it.

K T, Mersey Training

Nadine supplies myself and Mersey Training Limited with a first class professional service, eager to help and more than generous with her approach to clients and staff.
