To put it simply, without having highly-qualified and professional language experts who are able to provide an excellent proofread, edit or paraphrase, it becomes almost impossible to survive in this highly competitive market.
On Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and several other platforms, thousands of people describe themselves as proofreaders and editors. However, in truth, only a few are genuinely top-quality and qualified proofreaders and editors.
We are 100% aware of this FACT.
For this reason, we pay utmost care when we select and recruit our proofreaders, rewriters and editors, simply because the reputation of the Ultimate Proofreader is dependent on the quality of service they offer.
Language experts with an extensive and long experience of proofreading, editing and paraphrasing are an indispensable ASSET.
When we select them, we take them through a very rigorous process of testing and scrutiny, and they must fulfil certain conditions:
- 1) They must be native English speakers
- 2) They must be language experts
- 3) They must have academic background and information (in case of academic proofread & editors)
- 4) They must have at least 10 years of practical experience
- 5) They must have an eye for detail
We constantly keep their work under review in order to ensure that the quality of the proofreading, editing and rewriting services we provide to our clients is excellent and consistent.
We have both British and American proofreaders and editors based in the UK and around the world.

John Davies (published author and senior editor) says:
I have a good background of being educated in English grammar, as in the early years of my education, grammar was considered to be extremely important. I studied theology at Bangor University, Wales and spent my working life in the Church, where, among other things, I needed to have a good standard of spoken and written English. All through my working life, I had a desire to write, but never had the time, except for a few short articles. When I retired in 2010, I started writing and between 2011 and 2017 I had four books published as well as a booklet. The topic of the books is local history and public transport, which are my lifelong interests. I am often asked to give talks on these topics to local groups. Also, on my retirement, I decided to do some freelance proofreading, and I completed two courses, one on proofreading and one on copy-editing, for which I was awarded certificates. I now consider myself as an experienced proofreader, and I can proofread, edit and paraphrase documents professionally to a high standard.

Who are we?
The Ultimate Proofreader is a provider of premium proofreading, editing and paraphrasing services based in the UK.
For the many years we have been in business we have successfully given a helping hand to university students and academics from various universities with bespoke editing and proofreading services for essays, theses or dissertations.
We serve a lot of clients especially in these universities: the University of Sheffield, the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, the University of Leeds and the University of Reading.
We assist our customers, natives and non-natives, with English proofreading services that simply put them on the track to being awarded their degree with distinction.
Our services are reasonably and affordably priced, delivered within fast turnaround times with any impact on quality and expertly completed.
Our professional dissertation editors and proofreaders spend a lot of time on every assignment to make sure it is proofread, edited or rewritten to the highest standard.
We respect the fact that many students have very short deadlines before submission, so we operate around the clock 7 days a week to meet our customers' needs.
We have a strong belief that any professional proofreading services provider should go beyond the mere correction of language and look at the heart and soul of the text itself.
We also seek to educate, not only proofread, so we provide useful material related to language in our blog section.
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.
