I want to know what basic rules are used when translating from audio (transcription). Like should I write "I" for the interviewer when she speaks or "Interviewer"? How do I write "end/beginning of recording" or what if they mumble? It is an interview with 3 speakers. Do I write Speaker 1, 2, 3? Do I make a title at the top of the page (I was thinking of writing the name of the MP3 file, there are 8).

Thanks in advance.
