CWCki:Transcription Style

From CWCki
Jump to: navigation, search

One of the many ways the CWCki fulfills its goal of documenting the life and times of Christian Weston Chandler is through transcriptions of audio and/or visual media. Doing so enables those unable or just unwilling to listen or watch Chris related media to enjoy the content otherwise. Furthermore, it allows easy citation into other articles.

This document serves as a style guide for transcriptions pertaining to Chris-related videos, phone calls, and Mumbles.

Actions

Chris performed some noteworthy action while speaking. What do you do?

RIGHT:

Describe the action as succinctly as possible. Italicize this description and place it in brackets.

"My name is Christian Weston Chandler." [removes glasses dramatically]

WRONG:

Write an autistically lengthy description of the action.

"My name is Christian Weston Chandler." [uses his right hand to remove his glasses in a dramatic fashion]

ALSO WRONG:

Italicize the brackets, too.

"My name is Christian Weston Chandler." [removes glasses dramatically]

Long pauses

Chris paused for a long time between two words unnecessarily. What do you do?

RIGHT:

Use an ellipsis followed by a space.

"My name is… Christian Weston Chandler."

ALSO RIGHT:

Use three dots followed by a space.

"My name is... Christian Weston Chandler."

WRONG:

Use only two dots.

"My name is.. Christian Weston Chandler."

ALSO WRONG:

Use an ellipsis not followed by a space.

"My name is...Christian Weston Chandler."
