What can Libro do for you?

What can Libro do for you?

Here’s a handy list of everything that Libro can do for you, to make your life that bit easier and make your words work better …

Libro is all about making your words work, whether the words themselves need tweaking (editing what you’ve written, proofreading and polishing before publication), or writing (from your notes or a chat with you), or changing in terms of location (localisation from US to UK English or vice versa), or changing in terms of medium (turning handwritten notes or a taped interview into a typed document).

Follow the links for more information, but here’s a summary:

Editing  – making sure your words, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure and even your plots and non-fiction books don’t contain gaping holes.  Checking marketing content (leaflets, websites … ), blog posts, letters, reports …

Proofreading – checking that what you’re about to publish in print or online looks right and works as the document you expect it to be – checking page numbering, headers and footers, website links, etc.

(and for the difference between editing and proofreading, see here)

Copy writing – writing text for your book, downloadable e-book or leaflet, brochure, website, letter, press release, advertorial, advertisement, etc. from your notes or a conversation with you.  I can add in SEO keywords to build your presence in the search engines with text that potential clients will want to read, too.  I work with web designers, too – writing content for the websites they design.

Localisation – adjusting your copy to match UK or US English standards – not just the spellings but sentence structures, word usage, etc.

Transcription – saving you hours of time typing up dictations, interviews, meetings; why not produce a transcript of your webinar or training session to offer to your clients as an added extra?

Copy typing – bundles of notes and no inclination to type them up? Scan them in, send them to me and I’ll produce a nice, tidy, grammatically correct and properly spelled document.

I also offer all of these services as an add-on for virtual assistants, meaning they can offer a wider service without having to have all the skills themselves.

    Hi Liz, Thank you for creating this informative website and blog. You give good information and advice on the reality of transcription work. I’m a medical transcriptionist with twelve years of experience as a medical secretary and eight purely as a transcriptionist. I currently work for only one company on a self-employed basis and, not wanting to put all my eggs in one basket, I am hoping to embark upon some general transcription work or anything else that I can do freelance. I am going to read your advice in great detail in the hope of achieving this. Best wishes, Karen.

      Hi Karen, that’s a good idea and I hope the information I provide will be useful for you. There are quite a few companies out there looking for medical transcribers in particular, so you will be able to find those, hopefully – I get a few enquiries for this kind of work myself (and turn them down). If you’d like to send me a message with some references, I can add you to my list of people I recommend such jobs on to, as I prefer to recommend on than just say no!
