Definition: Transcriptionists are typically independent contractors who work from home transcribing and editing recorded reports.

Medical Transcriptionists
Medical transcriptionists convert doctor recorded reports into written reports. Medical transcriptionists need to be familiar with medical terms, as well as legal standards and privacy requirements that apply to health records. In most cases, companies prefer to hire candidates with previous experience or who have certification in medical transcription.

Legal Transcriptionists
Legal transcriptionists create and edit documents from a legal professional's dictation. Although no formal training is required to become a legal transcriptionist, it is important to have a basic understanding of legal terminology and to have good command of the English language.
