Document Fix & Format

All documentation in Microsoft Word contains formatting; some of it is pretty easy to master but some of it is quite complex.

Formatting in this context ranges from different page layouts to colours and headers to complex numbering schemes and tables of contents. Small problems can quickly escalate if the incorrect method is used or if a tool is used in the wrong place, particularly when collaboration is taking place between organisations who may adopt different practices. 

The documents produced by your organisation are an extension of your brand and show to the outside world who you are. Missing numbers or poor formatting and technique not only creates a mediocre impression but can also present a security risk.  Word documents require expert care and attention to ensure professional standards and information security are maintained.

Bluebird PAs are Word experts who can fix and format your complex documents and keep them free of trouble.  We can repair broken numbering and apply consistent formatting and house style, ensuring that your documentation is produced professionally and efficiently, while you deal with important client work. 

We can convert unencrypted PDF documents into a usable Word file, and apply your numbering and branding. We will maintain a secure database of your templates and train our PAs to understand your house style and individual requirements to ensure that documents align with your brand.

If your templates are created in an old version of Word and need updating, or if you need a whole new look, we can help you create new templates to make Microsoft Word work for you.

If you have an issue with a document and need help, call us on 020 3409 7040.

FAQs

What does “fix and format” mean?

When a document needs fixing, you will know about it. 

Sometimes it means that you are not getting the number you want, or the formatting goes awry.  There are reasons for these things occurring and we know how to spot them and fix them quickly. 

Reformatting a document means taking an old document and creating a fresh new document in your house style and with your formatting preferences.  We can do the same with any PDF document.

Can you fix any document?

We can fix any document, whether that is an internal document or one from other company.  

If the document needs to be kept in its original format, we can still fix it so that it works without interfering with the integrity of the document. 

All we need is some basic instructions and if we have questions, we will always ask.

What is a house style?

A house style is a set of formatting rules that represent your brand, and includes things like your font preference and size of the text. 

We use your house style to ensure that every document we produce for you is consistent and error-free. 

Do we need to have a house style?

This is easy to set up and just means that the Bluebird team know your rules and preferences for how to prepare your documents. 

If you don’t have a house style, we can help you create one.

How long does it take to format a document?

How long is a piece of string?  The length of time it takes depends on the document itself. 

That said, we are document experts and can work much faster at formatting your documents than those who don’t have the skills. 

Our standard turnaround time of 4 hours applies to every document, unless otherwise advised.

What are your charges?

We charge an hourly rate for document work.

For more information please visit our pricing page.

Can you do track changes and compare documents?

We recommend using Word Compare rather than Track Changes.  It means we can work in a clean document and produce for you a clean version and a redlined version. 

The redlined version works the same as a track changed document in that you can accept and reject changes.

The Social Desk has managed Bluebird’s social media marketing over the past year. Jayne and Leanne have always been very supportive and efficient in providing content and materials we required to carry out our work. Communication and efficiency is top notch with these ladies and we have formed a great business and personal relationship with them. We would highly recommend Bluebird to anyone looking for secretarial and administrative support!

We needed a new suite of documents for the office and felt outsourcing was the best option. The team at Bluebird created our entire suite swiftly and provided simple how to guides on using the documents. When we changed our work slightly again, we went back to Bluebird to have some amendments prepared. Customer service spot on, value and superb finished products. Couldn't ask for more.
