Ultimate Proof Ltd was established in 2004 to provide businesses and individuals with a professional, reliable and flexible proofreading and editorial service. By employing the skills of pre-selected, highly skilled freelance proofreaders, editors and copywriters, Ultimate Proof Ltd provides a consistent and continuous service - saving its clients valuable time, money and hassle.
Ultimate Proof Ltd's comprehensive editorial services are designed to suit any budget and schedule. With an online service, 7 days a week, the business can meet almost any requirement and is renowned for its delivery of high-quality work and excellent customer service.
Ultimate Proof has a satisfied and well-established client base, located throughout the UK and Europe, including blue chip companies, publishers, local businesses, government departments and charities.
The company is managed by Kelly Owen who has over 14 years' experience developed in-house and freelance working for a range of design and publishing companies.
Having worked on the client side, Kelly has a good idea of the pressures faced by clients and their expectations of suppliers. She feels it is important for clients to feel confident that the freelance proofreaders at Ultimate Proof Ltd take the quality of their work very seriously – whether it is for a large corporation or a budding author – a single-page flyer is treated with the same care and attention as a 200-page document.
Kelly has proofread/edited two books for me. She offered an excellent service, and the results were amazing. She really understood the characters. I enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone.
I'm a Brazilian student in the US. A British journal accepted an article I submitted and asked for a mother-tongue proofreading. After contacting Ultimate Proof, their answer came back in a couple hours (and it was always the case, every email was answered very quickly). The service was fast and of great quality, with competitive rates. I confidently recommend their business.
I asked Kelly to proof/copy-edit the first 3 chapters of my current novel - approx 15,000 words.
I felt the price was fair and Kelly did a whole chapter sample before I paid so that I could judge her work prior to using her service.
Once we had agreed the work, Kelly was friendly, kept in contact regularly and completed the work well within the agreed timescales - I was also very happy with the quality of work that Kelly produced and would definitely use Ultimate Proof again.
A very approachable and friendly company, I would have no problems at all in recommending Ultimate Proof to others and, indeed, I already have. ;-).
Kelly was courteous, conscientious, diligent and immensely supportive. She also finished my 85,000 word book - 24 Hours in Journalism - well ahead of time, having worked evenings and weekends. I will use her services again next year when I expect to repeat the project.
I approached Ultimate Proof for help with editing my full length novel 'A Glorious Sadness'. I had put so much time and effort into getting it to this point that I thought it deserved the full professional treatment, although I was sceptical that there was much work to do and also concerned that my 'voice' might be lost to an independent editor.
I was very wrong!
I was immediately contacted by Kelly Owen at UP who understood my scepticism and took her time to explain how she viewed her role as 'polishing' what is already there and ensuring that silly mistakes don't drag the reader away from the work. Kelly then went on to read a copy (all 110,000 words) and provide feedback at no cost and with no obligation.
The main aspect of the work done by Kelly and UP that caught me out was the level of personal service. At points I got the impression that Kelly may actually have been more enthusiastic about the project than I was! Kelly was always attentive, she would often answer emails at gone midnight when I was sat up working through edits and by the end of the process our relationship was more that of friends working on something they both care passionately about than a company merely concerned with ensuring there are no typo's.
I can't recommend Ultimate Proof enough. Whatever you need from an editor you will get here, I now have a far better piece than when the process started, the language is perfect, the dialogue in particular is smoother and I have a better idea of where I want to take the series following conversations with Kelly.
I am well under way with the sequel to A Glorious Sadness and I look forward to working with Ultimate Proof to ensure this is also as good as it can be.
Kelly is very professional, she did editing and proof-reading services for me. I'm really satisfied with her job!! I used many other before but non is as excellent and provide me with high-quality work as her.
Kelly has been an absolute pleasure to work with. After kept on driving her crazy changing deadlines and adding new contents to subedit at the really last minute, she's always delivered high quality work on time. We will definitely keep on working with her in the future (as the subeditor of our international business magazine).
