Who are we?

The Ultimate Proofreader is a provider of proofreading services & editing services & paraphrasing services based near London, UK.

For many years, we have been assisting PhD students, academics, book authors, professionals and businesses with proofreading services of the highest quality.

We strongly believe in our name, as we provide immaculate English editing and proofreading services of a quality and standard that can hardly be matched by any other service provider.

As a proofreading services UK provider, we have come to exist and thrive, fully aware that, if we do not deliver high-quality English language correction and improvement services, we would not stand an opportunity in this highly competitive market of proofreading services. That is why, delivering services of an excellent quality has been our first guiding principle.

Our second guiding principle is affordability. We are equally aware that, if the top-quality editing and proofreading services that we deliver to clients in the UK are highly priced, we would be beaten by other service providers.

So, we have been determined to provide outstanding, yet affordable and reasonably priced, services. For instance, we appreciate how students often run a tight budget, especially with the high cost of education in the UK.

We have therefore priced our different proofreading services in a way that would make them accessible to all students. For professionals, businesses and book authors, we also offer highly competitive rates, particularly on large assignments. The third guiding principle we have been working to is to deliver our excellent, affordable proofreading services in a timely fashion.

Although we try our best to complete assignments within fast turnaround times, we never give priority to speed over quality. For us, priority always comes first. Unlike other text editing and proofreading service providers, our proofreaders and editors may spend one or even two hours on a single page to correct, improve and clarify the text.

We do not work on an hourly basis; we give every document we receive all the time and care it needs, no matter how much time or effort we put into it. Our ultimate goal is to produce a text that is proofread or edited to a high standard that would help students, academics, book authors, professionals or businesses to achieve their desired results.

Having said that, we still strive to meet orders with tight deadlines by making sure that we have proofreaders and editors available 24/7, ready to step in when needed. The Ultimate Proofreader prides itself on having a very experienced team of proofreaders and editors who help us deliver those sterling proofreading services to our UK clients.

We are also a very friendly secure proofreading service UK provider, and are always happy to interact with our clients, whether before, during or after the completion of their assignments. We also believe that our task goes beyond the mere improvement of the language and style of writing to an informative, insightful, and educational service to academics and students.

For this reason, we provide feedback, as appropriate, on the areas of language that need to be worked on. Additionally, we have created a blog on our website that is purely dedicated to language-related matters.

Our aim is to help academics and students, particularly non-native speakers, to learn and improve their knowledge about the use of the English language for academic purposes. We can be reached by email (info@ultimateproofreader.co.uk) or by phone (07717750188), around-the-clock.
