Transcription and Typing Services

Lexicon Typing and Transcription have offices in Orpington and Tonbridge in Kent.  As a "virtual" service, we can offer typing and transcription nationwide, regardless of geographical location, providing a fast, efficient typing and transcription service at an attractive rate.  We understand that in these difficult economic times it is essential to keep costs to a minimum and by outsourcing your typing requirements, savings can be made in-house, paying only for the time taken to produce the work with no other overheads.                                                                                                                                            
We are skilled secretaries, working together for over ten years in a building surveying practice, at Director level before setting up Lexicon Typing & Transcription, using our experience and knowledge to provide an efficienct outsource alternative for companies, charities, students and individuals. Between us we have a vast range of experience in various professions, including typing of building surveys, schedules, Expert Witness Reports; preparing typescripts for publication.
We have expanded our expertise to include student dissertations, manuscripts, play scripts, etc with a wide variety of satisfied clients.



Together with my colleague, Jan, we started Lexicon when it became apparent that there was a demand for the services of a reliable outsource transcription company during these difficult economic times.  Jan and I worked alongside each other for ten years, at Director level, with a very heavy workload, which sometimes necessitated outsourcing work to agencies.  Unfortunately, at times the work failed to be delivered to an expected standard and timescale, This obvious gap in the market for a quality transcription service prompted us to take the plunge and set up Lexicon, promoting our expertise not only to the building surveying profession, but also to the wider public who require a first class, reliable and cost-effective service.


My previous experience includes working for a prestigious UK publishing company, preparing typescripts for publication, proof reading etc and PA to the Managing Director of a Patent & Trade Mark Agents, preparing patent specifications, correspondence etc. 


We are therefore highly qualified to carry out such work on an outsource basis.

"Jan and Sue at Lexicon have proved invaluable to my business, preparing schedules, specifications, Party Wall Awards etc to my specific requirements, typing up wordy survey reports and presenting the final work promptly and efficiently.  Their assistance in setting up my web site has certainly saved me considerable time and their patience is endless" 









When Sue and I realised the need for a good quality outsource typing and transcription service, we were eager to promote our skills and provide an effective answer to those professions and individuals looking for a dependable agency.


I have many years' experience working in the building surveying sector and, prior to working with Sue, I worked at Director level in Property and Estates divisions of a major national company being responsible for taking minutes of regular property meetings with directors and board members and producing capital budget documents for board members.


Previously I worked as secretary to the Chief Buyer of a large food company, preparing all general correspondence, liaising with foreign suppliers of food stuffs and preparing documents for directors and board members.
