Dear Clients, please be informed that the total price of orders will be calculated using the prices including VAT as displayed in the tables.

The deadlines herein (number of workdays) are defined considering the workload of our translators (and their summer and end-of-the-year holidays, as the case may be), and it may occur that we can deliver with longer deadlines. You are advised that longer deadlines occasionally mean more favourable rates.

Our prices are valid as of 13 January 2020.

In the case of paper-based certified translations, prices are calculated using the number of target-language characters including spaces. For e-certified translations the number of source-language characters including spaces are used. The price of certified translations includes the fee of the translation, revision, post-editing, and proofreading.
