In light of the recent events and changes all over the world, we’ve decided to share some of our experiences and lessons learned when working remotely, with our Pros.
On this small guide you’ll find general tips for all of our pros, and more specialized ones, depending on their areas of expertise.

General tips for remote working
To start, we talked a bit about being productive from home. We made some suggestions about having a dedicated workspace, making sure your equipment is comfortable and ergonomic if possible. It’s also important to make a difference between working hours and your free time at home: separating these time frames will help your mental well being and your physical state as well.
Since you’ll be now spending all of your time home, make sure to communicate these new changes with your housemates, that way you’ll avoid distractions and increase your productivity.
Tips for Writers and Translators
You need to pay special attention to your desk and chair. Make sure they are ergonomic and comfortable, without putting much weight or effort in your lower back. An organized and clean desk will make a huge impact on your mind when writing.
We recommend you consider diversifying your work offer and, at the same time, build an online network. This way you’ll create a stronger online presence while putting yourself out there for more work opportunities.
When it comes to writing we suggest you work from the writing processor you are most comfortable with. Some experimenting will come into play, but at the end, you’ll be able to find the best software for your work needs. We also highlighted the importance of open-source information and data hubs and also reaching out to your local libraries. Some of them around the world have released access to their digital goods, so take advantage of them for your own research and help your public libraries in the meantime!
Tips for Voice Pros
For Voice Pros, we can differentiate from three cases:
- Those working from a home studio
- Those who work from a recording studio and need to build an impromptu for the time being
- Those who want to build a lasting home studio
For the first group, remember to establish some breaks and recording hours.
For the second, closets, laundry rooms, and shelves are your best friends, they are feasibly treatable spaces. Also, make sure you use of isolation on your recording space, clothes, blankets, towels, etc. These will make your life easier when recording from home. But what matters the most is positioning, pay special attention to it. Don’t be close to flat surfaces to prevent reflections, avoid being too close to the mic so you don’t have plosives issues, and be very mindful of acoustic and isolation treatment.
Lastly, if you want to build for the next couple of months or years, think of it as an investment, we suggest buying mid to high-quality equipment. The tools you record with are key, and we recommend always using professional editing software. Even programs like Pro Tools and Reaper have some free versions that you could use!
