Prices and Delivery

Translation

While the length of a text, in terms of the number of words it contains, can be an approximate guide to how much it will cost to translate, other factors need to be considered.

The format is one such, for example a Word document is a more straightforward proposition than, say, a Powerpoint file where text boxes may need to be adjusted to display the text as it is intended to be seen, for example.

Another is technical complexity of subject matter and the amount of research needed.

Conversely, a repetitive text could attract a discount compared to a similar text without the repetition.

All of which means I do not publish pricing guidance.

As regards delivery, a typical lead time is approximately one working day per 2,000 words. Please bear in mind that work might not start on the same day that an order is confirmed.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details and/or to arrange a quote for your particular needs.

Executive summary

Charged by the hour, but requirements vary so much that even to give guidelines here is of no value. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details and/or to arrange a quote for your particular needs.

Proof reading

Proof reading of a previous translation is charged:

- at 40% of the theoretical cost of a translation from scratch, if your requirement is that I compare the translation to the original French version.
- by the hour if it is simply a question of checking a translated text without reference to the original French (or other foreign language) version.

Please note that in both cases, I will need to see the document before accepting any assignment.

Payment

Payment can be made by bank transfer or cheque in either sterling or euros. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.
