Business Friend has been providing a professional and confidential copy typing service across the UK since 2003.

Our fast, experienced typists will ensure your handwritten or previously typed text is accurately converted into digital format.  By using advanced Microsoft Word skills, your document or correspondence will be copy typed using consistent fonts, headings, headers, footers and margins, to ensure a professional final product.

Further information on the benefits of using professional Word operators can be found in our Word Services section.

What are the benefits of using a copy typing service?

By using the services of a professional copy typist, individuals and businesses can save valuable time.  Businesses can also save money by outsourcing their typing requirements.  For example, our copy typing service can be used as little or as frequently as desired, and as our rates are per word rather than per hour, the pricing structure is simple, clear and ensures our clients only pay for what they need, when they need it!
