General Translation (French to English)

The tariff varies according to the nature of the translation work. E.g. whether a legal, technical or personal document.
The price is generally based on the number of words in the original document, or, where an accurate word count is not possible, the amount of time required for the translation. But any quote also takes into account other factors, such as the format and quality of the original document and the timescale involved.

Certified Translations

Please contact me for a price for a certified translation, as there are many factors to consider when pricing.

If you wish, you can scan and upload the document using the form on my “Contact” page, making sure to also scan the backs of any document on which there is any text, as all text must be translated.
I can then send you a firm price and payment details.
Please include your name and billing address so that we can raise an estimate.

Whilst I can work from a scanned document, it is a legal obligation that I must see the original before certifying the translation. The original documents should be sent by registered post, with return of the originals and the translation by the same method.
