Terms and Conditions

Quotes will be based on our current price list and your specific needs. After thre scope of the project has been established, we will submit a written proposal, which will be valid for 30 days.
We require our clients to pay 50% of our fee in advance. Our policy is to start work on a translation only after we have received the deposit. The rest of the quoted price is due upon receiving our translation. Payments can be made by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or check.
Orders of less than $1000 require 100% upfront payment.
Late payments will be assessed a 1.5% late payment fee per month plus the cost associated with the recovery of payment. All disputes shall be brought within the territorial jurisdiction of Cook County, Illinois.
We understand the importance of on-time delivery and put forth every effort to complete translations in a timely fashion and within the agreed-upon timeframe. We will not be held responsible for the failure to meet the estimated date. We reserve the right to subcontract the work. Delivery will be via e-mail. Translations remain property of Site Translations until invoice is paid in full.
If there is any omission or error we will correct the translation. In the event that there is more than one way to intepret the meaning of a source text, we shall not have an obligation to correct mistakes or errors at no charge, unless preferences of style and/or terminologies have been communicated to us prior to the start of the translation. You will be responsible for checking all numbers and graphics.
Under no circumstances shall Site Translations be held liable for direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, harm, financial loss or any other loss caused at any time and under any circumstances.
