Typewrite Transcription and Typing Services CC (in operation since 2005) offers proofreading, editing, transcribing and typing services. 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)

transcribing and editing for studentsI 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.

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