Arabic (ΨΉΨ±Ψ¨Ω‰) transcription now live in beta!

Arabic transcription is released and now in beta. There are still improvements to come but you can now upload and transcribe audio or video files in Arabic.

Once transcribed, you'll have all the full suite of Trint tools available, including Highlights, Verify, Comments and Markers:

We're looking to make this better - please get in touch with feedback at, it will really help!

You can now auto-pause playback when typing

After a lot of feedback from users we released a way to automatically pause audio playback when you start typing in a Trint. This will make editing and polishing simpler, and you won't lose your place.

Just go to Settings - either from the Editor or from your account settings in the My Trints page - and update your preferences to switch on or off.

As always, drop us a note with any feedback.

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.

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!

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.

CSV export format just added

A lot of Trint users pick out key themes or moments in the Editor and then pack them up into spreadsheets or qualitative analysis tools (Nvivo, MaxQDA, Treejack) for deeper dives.

To make this kind of workflow easier, we made it possible to export in CSV format. You can export from the ‘Your Trints’ page (in bulk, too!) or direct from the Editor:

Before downloading, you can choose exporting highlights or comments from the Trint.

Choosing highlights will populate the following in the CSV:

  • Highlight colour

  • The words highlighted

  • In and out time codes

  • Duration

  • Speaker

Choosing comments will populate the following in the CSV:

  • The comment itself

  • User who commented, and any other comments over the same chunk of text

  • The text associated with the comment

  • If the comment is resolved or open

  • In and out time codes

  • Duration

Give it a shot and let us know how you do - we’re always here for questions.
