AVOID THE HEADACHE - Send me the text and I will provide you with a no-obligation quote.


Set prices are available for certain standard forms and certificates.

The following is intended to provide a guide to my pricing policy. I reserve the right to make variations where I feel this to be justified.

Translation rates are based on the length of the text to be translated, and vary according to the type of text:

    GROUP A Private letters and e-mails

    GROUP B Survey responses

    GROUP C All other document types not specifically mentioned

    GROUP D Statutes, rules and regulations; Legal textbooks and articles; Insurance policies; Court and arbitral decisions

    GROUP E Applies to poorly legible documents falling within group D

    THE RATE FOR POORLY LEGIBLE DOCUMENTS IS THAT FOR THE NEXT HIGHEST GROUP
    There may be a higher surcharge for extremely illegible documents
You may choose one of four measures of length:   prices in euro
    source word per word of the source text (the text to be translated):
    price in cents per word  A 10      B 11      C 12      D 12½      E 13

VAT Pursuant to European Union Regulations I am required to apply VAT at the rate of 19% when invoicing clients from Cyprus, or from other European Union member states unless they are taxable persons in the meaning of Article 196 of directive 2006/12/EC and can provide a VAT number. VAT does not apply in other cases.

The above schedule of charges does not in itself constitute a guarantee to undertake any particular translation at any particular time. Prices stated are in EUR; please inquire for quotes in other currencies.
These rates are for invoicing on 30-day payment terms to established commercial clients with a proven credit record. A TEN PERCENT DISCOUNT APPLIES TO IMMEDIATE CASH SETTLEMENT.
I have British and Eurozone bank accounts, so can easily receive payments from most parts of Europe.
