Why spend valuable time formatting and editing, when it can be outsourced to a document specialist?

OutSec have been providing document production and editing services since 2002.  We have a number of document production specialists to suit your business needs.  These include copy typists, proofreaders and Microsoft Word® document specialists, in order to provide the following services:

Fix and Format

Are you having issues with your Microsoft Word® document?  Are you struggling to fix automatic numbering so it runs sequentially? Not sure how to do a table of contents or how to add fields?  If so, our Fix and Format service is designed for you. 

Table of contents, internal cross-referencing, fields and hyperlinking.  These are all features of advanced document production. For some, simple document production tasks such as automatic numbering, tabulation and section breaks can prove difficult.  In a recent survey for “The Lawyer”, these challenges affecting legal professionals were documented:

“Some 30% of survey respondents stated that they frequently find applying numbering challenging.  Meanwhile 29% frequently find it challenging to ensure indentations are currently aligned…and almost 25% frequently find it challenging to update a document to a house style”.

These are common issues affecting many of our clients.  Especially where document creators need to follow their firm’s house style.  Similarly, documents which are worked on collaboratively can result in changes to formatting or the document becoming “broken”.  At OutSec our fix and format service, fixes broken documents and gets them back up and running the way they should.

We charge £0.45 per minute for a standard turnaround or £0.55 per minute on a priority basis.

Copy Typing

We know there are times when people prefer to draft documents or hand write notes, and then require a copy to be typed at a later date. This is one of the reasons why we provide copy typing services. Similarly, there are times in this modern world where copy typing of a document (or parts thereof) are needed.  This is especially so, where a document is in a different format than needed, locked from editing or copying.  Or where the document exists solely in a physical form and where an editable, digital version is needed.  

There are also times when you have a physical document and need a digital version with some minor changes, that it is quicker, easier and cheaper than dictating the document – and just want to throw it over to a copy typist to get it back whilst you get on with your day to day work. 

Copy typing is more time consuming than digital dictation.  It also requires a different skill set to trained audio typists.  At OutSec we have experienced copy typists available to meet your firm’s needed and supplements our digital dictation services.

Proof Reading

Maybe you have lost the original Word document and only have a PDF version? Let OutSec provide you with a freshly typed copy to:

  • create an editable copy of the original physical document for reuse or repurpose
  • create editable sections of text from the original physical document(s) for reuse or repurpose

Copy typing work we undertake (but not limited to):

  • Legal documents
  • Property documents
  • Manuscripts
  • Agreements
  • Meeting Minutes

From as little as £0.40 per minute standard service / £0.50 per minute on a priority service

OutSec also offer a proof reading and correction service.  Our proof readers evaluate and correct grammar, punctuation, formatting, spacing, spelling, omitted and repeated words, as well as typographical errors. This is useful for businesses who need to ensure accuracy and consistency in written documents and communications with clients and other parties.

Businesses based outside the UK (where documents may be written by staff whose first language is not English) find our service invaluable.  

Law firms use our service where they need to ensure that two documents (an original and a newly typed document) are identical. Here it saves two members of staff being occupied in the checking process, thereby reducing costs to law firms whilst freeing up staff.

OutSec’s proof reading service starts at £0.40 per minute on a standard turnaround basis, rising to £0.50 per minute on a priority basis.

Why not use Outsec to reduce costs and boost productivity in your business today? By opening an account today, you could begin saving money while increasing efficiencies. 

As well as our copy typing, proof reading and fix and format services, OutSec offer single and multi voice digital dictation services.
