Google ADwords. Our first time advertising.

We are now advertising on Google ADwords. Wow. It will be exciting to see our name appearing on Google's ad banners. Heheh. 

The years 2015-2017 has been challenging. So far we have worked by family and friends' word of mouth advertisements, hope marketing (this actually works up to a point) which got us some of the way, and then by posting random ads on the local state bar committee webpage, Linkedin, Facebook and Hotfrog. They were all useful. Now we try Google Adwords. For every customer that finds us through Google Adwords, we hope this offsets our recent increase in operational costs and increases our customer base. Customers will be happy to note that our rates remain the same and we have not increased our fees since 2015.

In fact our Merdeka 2017 promotion for transcriptions and translations has started, we offer RM3.00 per minute for transcriptions (contextual services only) and RM75.00 per page for translations (technical/medical/legal translations).

Email us at for more information.

Happy 2015!

Happy New Year! Here's to an abundant, peaceful, happy, healthy and successful 2015.

We can't believe it has been almost 8 months since we posted anything on this blog. I guess you could say we were shocked silent at the passing of the eminent Malaysian advocate and solicitor Mr Karpal Singh and could not bring ourselves to post anymore updates on this blog after that.

Then we started focusing on updating our Facebook presence with regular updates and neglected those of our clients and fans who do not have Facebook accounts. So sorry about that.

Many things have happened since April 2014, some incidents in fact which we can't even begin to process the odds of such things happening, but as Freddie Mercury would say, the show must go on!

I promise that we will update this blog every first Thursday of the month. At least. We will also share some backdated posts on this site so watch this page for key updates on our services and promotions.

Wishing everyone a blessed year ahead.


Best wishes,
January 2015

In Memoriam Mr Karpal Singh 1940-2014

Thank you Yang Berhormat Encik Karpal Singh. Thank you for the 40 years of service to Malaysia and to all Malaysians irrespective of creed and colour. You were everybody's hero and now you and Michael Cornelius walk with all the choirs of the angels in heaven. May God bless you both and your families too. Rest in peace.

Language Competency

We just received some badly drafted administrative forms and documents from our service provider and it gave us food for thought. We are wondering whether there should be a requirement of full language competency both in Bahasa Malaysia and in the English Language, before a person takes on any sort of role in Malaysian public institutions and inter/intra-governmental bodies.

This is especially important when taking on duties that require interaction with the world at large. It seems to us that knowledge and practical understanding of language usage is key.

Otherwise how does one communicate sufficiently and adequately with one's colleagues, vendors, clients, beneficiaries and stakeholders?

Joint transcription and translation services bundle

Dear readers, 

We have received numerous requests from universities, professors, medical doctors and post-grad students for transcription and translation services of bilingual Malay and English audio recordings into written  English format. Since October 2013, we have thus far received about 25 requests. Given that we are a small transcription services firm that provides services mostly for law firms, accounting firms and marketing sales firms thus far, we have had to design a work flow and a transcription/translation process that works for this new category of clients and their time constraints. 

Are there many university medical staff and doctoral students requiring medical transcription services of their research materials and research products? This is interesting! Please note as well that we do provide subsidized rates upon request for students, non-profit organisations, government bodies and public officials.

Do contact us to find out our rates and how we provide these bundled services.

Our transcription services

Well we thought this was hilarious but on point indeed.

We provide legal transcription services that are perfectly verbatim and we give clients the option of including ambient sounds or filtering them out where they are not integral to the file transcription. 

Some clients have labelled our transcription rates as on the high side, but with our ATV: Durian Runtuh promotions this is no longer the case. We have also generally adjusted our rates to make them more competitive! Do check out our list of services here : range of services that we offer

We also do randomly give certain clients freebies and further reductions in our rates! But remember folks, quality comes at a price, and we will not compromise on quality. You get what you pay for, and we always aim for an accurate transcription every time.

We are back online!

We are back online!

It turned out our service provider had a failure on their DNS server.We noticed this when we did a check and messaged them at 2.42 am. They replied by 3.00 am and it was fixed really fast ... at 4.00am our work site was up and running again. Thank goodness for efficient IT service providers. And then we received another new client immediately after yayy...all's well that ends well!  :)

Our main worksite at

Dear everyone,

Our main worksite at Tarjima Transcription Services & Consultancy appears to be having some network difficulties. Our worksite will be up and running by the morning. Apologies for the slight interruption in availability.

We are checking with our IT service provider to find out what the issue is and in the mean time please refer to the cached copy of our worksite on Google over here in case you are searching for our range of services that we offer.

Untranslatable words

The idea of untranslatable words as seen in this aerogramme article is so intriguing to us at Tarjima. Our personal favourites are komorebi, sobremesa and mangata! It makes us want to have an evening fiesta with our friends and loved ones, by the beach amidst the tropical trees and sun-kissed leaves.
