My colleague Liz Broomfield recently posted some excellent articles on her LibroEditing blog about the transcription service she offers in addition to her editorial work.
I thought I'd share links to them because (1) I found the articles illuminating in terms of their attention to detail regarding both the market opportunities and the skills involved, and (2) this area of work may be a sensible consideration for those who want to extend their service portfolio to include something a little different but related.
Liz will shortly be covering the tools of the trade for professional transcribers, but in the mean time, here are the first three blog posts:
