Cost estimates and orders

If an original document is modified while the translation is already in progress, changes to the translation will be charged based on the hourly rate for revisions.
If the document includes formulae and tables, the customer must indicate whether or not they are to be reproduced. If so, an additional charge will apply based on translation or hourly rates.

The basic rate will incur a surcharge of 50% for urgent jobs. Jobs with deadlines and volumes requiring evening work (after 18.00) or work during the weekend or on public holidays are considered urgent.

Documents are delivered by e-mail free of charge or may be sent by post (“A” rate) on request.
