New languages & language improvements! πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·πŸ‡²πŸ‡ΎπŸ‡³πŸ‡±πŸ‡©πŸ‡°

Good news - we launched new transcription languages today so you can now capture:

  • Turkish 🇹🇷
  • Malaysian 🇲🇾

For those of you transcribing in Dutch 🇳🇱or Danish 🇩🇰 we also release improvements in accuracy and the quality of punctuation, including capitalization, so you should see better performance.

Please let us know how you find the the performance in these languages - we'd love your feedback.

Markers now appear in transcript text

Any markers you drop - whether that's on the mobile iOS app on desktop - will now appear directly on your Trint transcript, along with the time code.

Here's what it looks like in your transcript:

This makes it easier to find and track key moments, and use the time coded snippets for your onward work.

Easy-to-view highlight duration

This week we added a new feature in the Editor that lets you see the total duration of highlighted moments in your transcript, as well as how much each highlighted color represents in the transcript.

Here's what it looks like in the Editor:

The ranking makes it easy to see which colors represent the biggest part of the transcript.

Let us know what you think.

Now align embedded timecodes automatically!

With the launch of automatic timecode alignment, whenever you upload a video with an embedded timecode it will be extracted and reflected in the Timecode modal at the bottom of your Trint:

The timecode alignment is supported for the following frame rates:

  • 24 FPS
  • 25 FPS
  • 29.97 FPS
  • 30 FPS
  • 60 FPS

If Trint finds multiple embedded time codes, none will be extracted. Currently drop-frame timecodes are not supported.

We're always here for feedback or questions - let us know.

Get even more out of CSV Exports

You may have seen that we added CSV files as an export format not long ago, which included either exporting highlights or exporting comments. Well, we just added one more: the entire transcript as a CSV file.

Just go to the Export tab on the Trints page, select CSV at the bottom and click on 'Entire Transcript':

What comes out on the other side?

Each cell contains one paragraph from your Trint transcript, and includes the time codes, duration, content, speaker, and verification status. Check it out:

This should help drive some further work down the line - let us know if you use it and how you like it.

Thank you.

Simplified organization with Sorting

We recently released an update on Trint pages that allow you to sort your Trints and folders.

Simply click on one of the column headers to organize by that value. Below, we're sorting by name:

All of the column headers can be sorted in ascending or descending order: Name, Status, Upload member and Date, Last Edit and Duration, so you lay out your work, and find what you need, however makes sense for you.

You can now sort on any Trint page, including Your Trints, Recent Trints, Shared with You and for our Pro Team and Enterprise customers, Workspaces. Please note, folders will always appear at the top.

We hope this helps! Let us know if you have feedback or comments.

More visibility (and collaboration) in Verify

We know how important transcript accuracy is, so we're releasing some significant upgrades to the Verified ✅box to give you and your collaborators more information.

We're introducing a new state: Edited. This is when paragraphs have been edited, but have never been marked as Verified. Here's a rundown of the four states: 

You can now clearly see the status of your work and immediately find which parts still need attention.

There's also big changes for collaborators with a Pro Team, Team or Enterprise account: you can now see who made the last edit.

And remember, you can mark a paragraph as correct using the keyboard shortcut control-alt-v.

We'll roll these changes out over the next couple of hours, so keep an eye out and tell us your thoughts.

Happy Trinting!

Dynamic Punctuation is Live!

There's a new layer of dynamic punctuation in the Editor so you end up doing less polishing and focus on the more important work.

Trint will automatically capitalize or de-capitalize the following word depending on your edits, check it out:

This happens for new paragraphs, periods and exclamation or question marks.

Just go into Settings in the bottom right of the Editor and make sure Auto capitalize and Punctuate new paragraphs are switched on:

Please make sure you get in touch with any feedback.

Easier to use Verified! (and a call for beta testers!)

Interested in testing new Verified functionality not shown here?
Email with "I want to test some awesome new Verified stuff before everyone else". Or to that effect. Limited numbers, so act fast if you're keen!

We've improved our Verified functionality to make it easy to see how much the transcript is polished. The percentage at the bottom of the transcript shows the status at a glance, including any verifications made by team members.

We didn't stop there. It's also much easier to toggle the Verified status: simply hover over the area right of any paragraph and click (you had to click the checkbox before).

P.S. if you want to use Verified, you'll need to be on one of our non-PAYG plans.

Levelled up Trint Punctuation

You may have noticed a bit of ? and a smattering of ! in your transcripts. That's because we layered Advanced Punctuation into our transcription algorithm. What does this do exactly? Glad you asked:

Commas, question marks & exclamation marks are automatically added to Trints
• Overall accuracy of periods and capitalization is improved
• Applied to English 🇺🇸/🇬🇧, French🇫🇷, German 🇩🇪 and Spanish 🇪🇸

It's all about faster understanding, and less editing. Get in touch with feedback.
