Typewrite Transcription and Typing Services CC (in operation since 2005) offers proofreading, editing, transcribing and typing services including basic typesetting (MS Word and InDesign). The company is based physically in Johannesburg, South Africa  and virtually in the rest of  the world, via technology.

I, Gaynor Paynter, am the sole employee of the business. I make full use of the internet to offer digital transcribing and online typing services to clients in South Africa and internationally, making extensive use of the internet, Dropbox, WhatsApp and other technology which facilitates our services.

However, I’m also happy to work in person and clients are welcome to deliver work to the premises should they find this easier. I am also happy to train you on using the internet to submit work.

Offering all transcription and typing services including:

  • interviews,
  • disciplinary inquiries,
  • meetings like AGMs,
  • conferences,
  • reports,
  • manuscripts
  • dictated notes from students and professionals (such as forensic teams, translators and radio show hosts)

I prepare transcriptions for companies who specialise in recording offering a one stop solution.

Expertise extends to assisting with document preparation such as creating minutes from transcripts.

I also offer proofreading, editing and CV writing (click to see more).  For a long time I worked in a recruitment company and am proficient and skilled with writing CVs.

When requesting a quote it will save time if  you provide as much information as possible. These are all things I will need to ask if you don’t provide it:

  • Language
  • Turnaround time
  • The length of your audio (if transcription)
  • The character count including spaces (if editing / transcription)
  • Specifics like font size, spacing etc required

Prior to starting my business in 2005, I worked in administration and related positions for 10 years. I also completed an N5 Secretarial Diploma.
