What is the benefit of using a transcription API?

Integrating Subly’s APIs into your internal platform will provide a seamless and secure experience for your clients or internal teams.

Why would I use your API and not just use a link to the Subly site?

By integrating Subly’s APIs into your platform, your team or your clients will never need to leave your internal platforms, or have the need to log in to Subly. No need to manage subscription plans and team access as it would be managed on your internal platform.

Is the Subly API white labeled or does a customer always need to add “powered by Subly”?

Our APIs and iFrame can be integrated in your platforms without the need to mention Subly. We are also happy to partner with out clients and happily shout about our collaboration. It’s fully up to you.

What expertise does a company need to be able to implement an API i.e. do they need a developer and what coding language skills?

We have built Subly APIs to be easy to integrate into any platform. You will need someone that understand your platform or is familiar with the platform that you are integrating Subly APIs into.

What is the best way to demo the API or provide an insight as to how good it is?

Our APIs are a very good representation of our web app. We recommend trialing our Subly product to ensure you are happy with the transcription quality and editing experience. Then have a look at our API documentation to understand how to integrate into your product. We will support you through the integration.
