Client Testimonials

"During his six years working for St Helens Council Education Department, Paul was, among other things, our in-house "languages expert", doing the translating, interpreting and liaison with our twin towns in Chalon-Sur-Saône, France, Stuttgart, Germany and El Prat de Llobregat, Spain. His participation has enabled us to maintain strong links with all three towns, particularly in the field of education, where he set up and managed a very successful work experience programme for sixth formers"
Brian Mainwaring, Director of Education, St Helens Council, August 1995

A1 Translations: Translation
 

altTranslation pricing is dependent on three variables; the language in question, the degree of difficulty of the text and the desired delivery time.  So, common languages like English and Spanish are cheaper than German and French, which in turn are cheaper than Russian, Norwegian or Greek.  Legal or technical texts are more expensive than material in normal everyday language.  If a translation is needed in a hurry, it may cost a little more. The price is based on the word count of the source text.
