How do you make the changes?

All editing is done using Word ‘Track Changes’. The editing process involves identifying and correcting (after consultation with you when necessary) all grammatical, expression, spelling referencing and structural concerns. A second ‘clean copy’ of your document (with all of the changes already accepted) is also provided. If the operating system you are using does not read ‘Track Changes’ an outline of the changes that were made can be provided.

What about confidentiality?

At Arion editing we respect the ethical contract that exists between a client and a service provider. Any documents and information received at Arion editing will be viewed by, and/or discussed with, no person outside the company. All documents remain the property of the client at all times and will be kept on file after the conclusion of the work only at the client’s request.

What about copyright?

Arion editing will make no claims on copyright in relation to any changes made to your prepared document / manuscript, or in relation to a document composed on request. All documents / manuscripts remain the property of the client / author at all times and will be kept on file after the conclusion of the work only at the client’s / author’s request.

I am an international student and my essay needs a lot of editing. Does this matter?

At Arion editing we know that it is sometimes hard to write down your insights and ideas correctly and fluently in a foreign language. If you have made the effort to draft a response that attempts to answer the question, we are happy to fix all of the grammar, expression and spelling mistakes.

What is the payment process?

Upon agreement to use our services the necessary account details will be provided so that you can deposit the agreed amount.

What is the turn-around time for manuscripts? (Authors)

The turn-around time will depend on two things: the word count of the script and the type of service required. For instance, critiquing a 20 000 word manuscript for fluency of expression and plot development might have a minimum turn-around time of 2 days, whereas copy editing a 20 000 word manuscript might have a minimum turn-around time of 3-4 days. We can get manuscripts of up to 20 000 words back to you within 24 hours, but you will have to pay a little bit more for the request for urgency.

What is the turn-around time for essays? (Students and academics)

The turn-around time will depend on two things: the word count of the script and the submission date. For instance, a 2000 word essay might have a minimum turn-around time of 24 hours, whereas a 20 000 word thesis might have a minimum turn-around time of 3 days. At Arion editing we understand that the life of a student can sometimes mean the assignment doesn’t get done until the last minute. We can get essays of up to 3000 words back to you within 6 hours, but you will have to pay a little bit more for the request for urgency.

How does your personalised pricing policy work?

Every work request is different. Some jobs require more energy be put into the wording, whereas for others it is all about the design and layout. At Arion editing we do not ask you to pay us at an expensive hourly rate and then give you a vague idea about the amount of time your work will take. We calculate the word amount (approximate or actual) with the level of editing / writing required, to ensure that you get the best value for money.

Are any job requests too small?

At Arion editing we’re happy to provide whatever level of service you’re after. From fixing up or writing a paragraph or two, to working on the whole thing from scratch, all you have to do is ask.

How do you help to write a speech?

After getting from you a few necessary details (important names and details of particular events) we compose a fluent, well-rounded and engaging speech in the style that you’re after. We’ll ensure that it is timed to perfection and that it is totally appropriate for the occasion.
