WRITERS

At Virtual Office Solutions we consider ourselves as the grammar trolls of the transcription world.  We like nothing better than to get stuck into a document, report, article, book or short story and to assist in bringing it to life.

Our aim is to make every project the best that it possibly can be and to ensure that the author/writer feels that their work has been given the highest level of attention to detail that they could possibly ask for.

Having worked with many authors, students and publishing houses over the years we offer transcription and formatting services and can produce your finished document tailor made to your own specifications.

Contact us today if you would like one of our team to give you a call back in relation to our transcription services for writers and publishers.
