Transcription refers to the process of rendering a spoken dialogue into written format. This makes transcription somehow similar to subtitling, however, the difference is that transcriptions are read separately from the original source. Besides, transcriptions allow people to render the speech in full, without having to condense it down or potentially lose information.
