violin, viola cello and bass are all tuned to concert pitch, so I don't think anything needs to be transposed.

so far as the pitches go... goggling just confused things, as it's impossible to nail down what you actually say without being specific...
(I didn't know that there were 8 different types of Violin each with it's own scale range.)

yeah, I know they are all in the key of c, but guitar for example is 1 octave lower than its written.

That site helps a lot.
