Trint

Added: Aug 22, 2023

Effortless transcription for videos, calls and podcasts.

What does Trint do?

Whether you want to reference a video lecture, share notes from a business call or create a transcript from a podcast episode, Trint can help. Trint is a web-based automated transcription platform that allows you to search, edit and share your transcripts, whilst saving yourself some time.

Trint is a great piece of kit if you work in a team - it’s extremely collaborative. You can share transcripts, add team members to comments and create shared drives, so you’ll never miss anything. Create an account, add your audio or video, wait a few minutes and your transcript will be ready, it’s as easy as that! With Trint you get a 7-day free trial which includes 3 transcripts, so you can test out the platform before committing.

Once your 7-day free trial runs out, you’ll have to upgrade. Trint has two different paid memberships that you can pick from. The Starter membership will cost you and your team $60/user, per month. With the Starter membership, you can upload 7 files per month to transcribe and edit, create subtitles and closed captions, identify speakers automatically, combine transcripts and collaborate with up to two members. If you need more access and flexibility, the Advanced membership might be better for you. This membership includes everything in the Starter membership as well as, unlimited transcriptions, mobile app access, shared workspaces, translations into 54 languages and more! This will cost you $75/user, per month (a bit pricey, if you’re part of a small team!)

If you find that you’re jumping between platforms, Trint offer a few different integrations, to save you even more time. You can integrate Trint with Zoom and Zapier, making the process of moving files around so much easier. They also have a great story builder feature that allows you to pull sections from different transcripts into one new script. You can search your ‘Trints’ and build new stories, create new pitches and pull together important highlights, all in one place.

One final feature I love that I haven’t seen anywhere else is the Custom Dictionary feature. It’s a personal dictionary that you can curate yourself, to help improve the accuracy of your transcripts. So if there’s a funny word that you say all the time that never gets picked up, pop it in your dictionary and your transcript will be even more personalised.

So, if you’re in a research team wanting to share user interviews, part of a podcasting business collaborating on a new episode or needing to share meeting notes with your colleagues, why not consider Trint to make all of this a little easier. It really is a great tool for teams!

We Love:

  • Extremely collaborative - great for teams!
  • Intuitive interface
  • Transcribes recordings with reasonable accuracy

We Hate:

  • Expensive!

Our Verdict on Trint

If you’re sole trader and collaboration isn’t high on your list, I’d suggest using another platform instead of Trint. There are cheaper platforms out there that are targeted towards one person/smaller teams, that will work perfectly for what you need.

If you do work in a team and find yourself needing to share transcripts with team members, Trint allows you to do this effortlessly. The perfect tool for searching, collaborating and sharing with your team.

The story builder and custom dictionary are stand out features, that will massively help you on your transcription journey. But, high quality is never cheap and that’s why Trint comes with a bit of a price tag. Why not sign up and give that 7-day free trial a go!

Compared Alternatives

  • Descript - is a cheaper alternative to Trint, but doesn’t have as many collaborative features under its belt.
  • Otter.AI - offer a Chrome extension feature that automatically detects when you open a meeting link in your browser, which is pretty cool. But Otter.AI don’t seem to have the same in-depth editing suite that Trint have which is a real shame!

Features

  • Automated transcription
  • Story builder
  • Custom dictionary
  • Audio capture
  • Versatile integration hub

Use-Cases

  • Research team transcribing a customer research call
  • A podcast host sharing a transcribe of an episode
  • An interviewer sharing a conversation with their team

Insider Tips

  • For large audio or visual files, consider splitting them into smaller chunks. Smaller files will help enhance transcription accuracy and speed on the Trint platform.
  • If recording an interview in person, try using the Trint app. You can record directly into the app and transcribe the conversation straight away! Just a flag, you can only access the Trint app under the Advanced membership.
