  • We type handwritten workshop notes (on butcher’s paper or PDF documents)

  • We type typed PDF documents into Word documents.

What we can do for you

  • Provide you with a free consultation to clarify what you need, the timeline, and a quote. If we have a typist who lives near you, we can arrange for pickup/delivery of your hard copy document. Otherwise, we will ask you to scan and email the document to us, or post it to us.
  • When typing the document, we will correct any typos or minor errors in the original, as we type. If we discover a lot of errors or major errors in the original, we will consult with you about the extra charges.
  • If your original document is handwritten, or a typed document with handwritten corrections, we may consult with you to clarify words, letters or short forms.

If you need a PDF document typed into a Word document, we will first try to convert your PDF to Word, then:

  • if the conversion produces an accurate Word document, no typing or correcting will be necessary.
  • if the converted Word document is mostly accurate,  it will need to be proofread it to correct the errors.
  • if the converted Word document is full of errors, the whole document will need to be copy typed ‘from scratch’.

Note: Our definition of ‘Copy typing’ is copy typing text that may have headings, dot points and tables, with minimal formatting. We type the document in Word and submit it to you in Word or PDF. Creating, or amending, Table of Contents, Word Styles or footnotes is called ‘formatting’.
