Transatlantic International is a company that specializes in international depositions for clients in the United States. The company primarily caters to multinational corporations and handles complex assignments that involve logistics and arrangements for attorneys and court reporting agencies. These depositions are conducted all over the world, from Asia to Europe, and require real-time reporting, rough drafts, expedited next day transcripts, among other things.During a podcast with Ray Haddad, Director of Customer Success at Stenograph
, David Ross, CEO of Transatlantic International revealed that the court reporting industry is coming under strain due to shortages of stenographers. This problem is not just limited to the US market but is also affecting other countries worldwide. Ross spoke about how Transatlantic International only deals with English language reporters and currently relies on traditional stenography methods as digital reporting methods do not fit its requirements. He also mentioned how AI speech-to-text experts have failed to provide solutions for the industry’s needs as they do not understand the responsibilities of a court reporter in legal scenarios. However, Ross was optimistic about MaxScribe streaming technology’s ability to transform Transatlantic International’s operations by providing new tools that would make reporting easier for reporters while maintaining their importance as impartial guardians of record during depositions. It’s interesting to note how Stenograph has been addressing the shortage of stenographers by introducing AI-powered real-time streaming capabilities through MaxScribe. With this new tool available for Transatlantic International’s use case at hand, it may attract more young professionals interested in pursuing a career in court reporting. Furthermore, Ross praised Stenograph for its resilient support system that provides 24/7 technical assistance whenever needed during international proceedings. This level of support undoubtedly adds value to clients like Transatlantic who handle high-stake cases involving multinational corporations across time zones. In conclusion, the partnership between Stenograph and Transatlantic International could be transformative for the court reporting industry, particularly in international proceedings. With AI-powered real-time streaming capabilities and resilient support systems, it could deliver a new level of efficiency and ease to the job, while maintaining the same high standards expected from court reporters.
