English translation:secretary, penman, wielder of the pen
Explanation:
It seems to me that this is the person who actually does/is doing the writing. Depending on how formal or informal the document is, I would use one of the above terms. "Wielder of the pen" sounds very pompous but this is probably the most advisable in a legal set-up.
Good luck
