What is Apollo Communication?

Apollo Communication is an editing service for busy individuals who want their essays, books, reports, dissertations, and journal articles free of grammatical and factual errors, typos, and inconsistencies before submission and publication.

Why choose Apollo Communication?

Apollo Communication provides a network of professional editors and proofreaders that will focus on your requirements. If you want your manuscripts to be well written, free of errors and professional, you should choose Apollo Communication.

How much will editing and proofreading cost?

This will depend on the length of the document, the type of edit required and possibly the deadline. Projects (under 2000 words) cost £39.

How long will it take to edit a document?

A very short document requiring a minimal amount of work may be completed in an hour or two. Depending on the type of edit and the length, editing and proofreading could take several days. Please let us know the closing date for submission of a project, as we often work to tight deadlines.

What documents are appropriate to Apollo Communication?

Documents include reports, brochures, books, training manuals, journal articles, advertisements, presentations, and press releases.

What if my material is confidential?

We are committed to protecting the privacy of all confidential material that is submitted to us. If you need further information and reassurance on confidentiality, we can let you have an agreement signed by our editor(s).

How will I review the edits/changes to my work?

We use Track Changes in Microsoft Word. These allow you to preview changes made to your work, and are used to mark (in a specific colour) revisions that are made to a document. An editor will insert revisions and suggestions. We can show you how to follow Track Changes in order to see where revisions have been made to your work. In this way, you can accept or reject individual changes and have control of a document.

In PDF files we use the Wacom annotation tool in conjunction with PDF-XChange. Here we correct grammatical, spelling and formatting errors and create a fresh text annotation for each comment.

Material can also be sent to us in the form of hard copy. We mark the edits by hand and post/email the corrections to you.

What about payment?

It is necessary to discuss payment before the work is undertaken. Payment (see Costs) is made by bank transfer or cheque 7–14 days after the completion of the work.
