Take 1 to acquire Verb8tm
December 7, 2021
Transcription, access and localisation services provider to the media and entertainment sector, Take 1, has entered into an agreement to acquire Maryland-based transcription and captioning company, Verb8tm.
The transaction is scheduled to close on the December 31st 2021 and Take1 says it will strengthen its position in the US with the addition of Verb8tm’s staff and technology.
“All access and localisation services depend on high quality transcripts, so it just makes sense for us to invest in the talent, technology and workflows that Verb8tm has spent years researching and perfecting in these areas,” said Take 1 CEO, Louise Tapia. “But, more importantly, the Verb8tm team demonstrates the values of professionalism, commitment to quality, perseverance and dedication that are central to our culture. Their addition to our team will strengthen the entire organisation and cement our position as a leading supplier of transcription, access and localisation services in the US.”
“We’ve dedicated over a decade, at ICART and Verb8tm, to making audio and video accessible to global audiences through high quality transcribing and captioning,” said Verb8tm founder, Ellyn Sheffield. “Like Verb8tm, Take 1 is renowned for integrating technology and human workflows to create high quality content, but with the added benefits of an international client base and presence. Take 1 is already a trusted partner to some of our most significant clients and joining Take 1 will provide our team with a fantastic opportunity to continue our legacy of excellence.”
