transcribe (something) in (something)

1. To make a written or typed copy of some source, especially an audio source, in a particular language.

I still have to write in my native language first, before I can transcribe the lines in English.
2. To translate or transliterate some piece of writing into a different language. I was hired to transcribe the company's technical documents in Russian. For the first activity, I want you to transcribe the romaji in hiragana and katakana.
3. To create a transcription of speech sounds using written phonetic symbols or representations. The hardest part of writing the grammar guide was transcribing all of the pronunciations in the International Phonetic Alphabet.
