How it Works

  • For translations: 
    Please send me a detailed request for a quote using this form. I will require a copy of the document(s) you wish to have translated or link to the website you wish to have translated I will prepare a quote to complete the work and a timeline. I will require an initial payment of 25% of the total cost. Once the translation is complete, I will require payment in full by cheque (drawn from a French, UK, Canadian or US bank) and I will forward the translation to you in the format you prefer – either electronically or in hard copy depending on your needs.
