These are guidelines; we will agree the fee basis with clients before starting work
on each job. If a client asks us to to do something that is written in very technical
language, or based on faint or hard-to-read original, or needs a very special layout,
or is a “I know it’s 9:00 pm now, but can you have these 3000 words translated by
morning?” then extra fees will apply. Even so, it’s good to have an idea of likely
costs before making contact, so here we go:
Base price for written translations: £0.07 per word in the original document.
Birth, death or marriage certificate certified to be a true translation: £40 including
return first class postage within the UK.
Letter written to convey client’s ideas: £40 up to 200 words, then £0.07 per word
written over 200 words.
Proofreading is by individual quotation, having seen the source material.
We make no additional charge for annotating documents in pdf format or for outputting
documents in pdf format.
We are advanced users of Microsoft Office and are comfortable laying out pages with
graphics, tables, columns and so on. For this reason we make no extra charge for
using basic desk top publishing techniques or inserting customer-supplied images
We do not charge VAT.
