Request a quotation
Don't hesitate, it's free and non-binding !
Simply e-mail me the text to be translated or proofread. If you don't pass the whole text on to me, you can send a representative excerpt of the text, including word count (Statistics feature available in Microsoft Word or Open Office Writer).
Please specify the requested deadline and any important information.
I will send you the quote or contact you as soon as possible.
About proofreading and copy-editing services, the initial quote is for careful reading with just written feedback about each point to be reviewed, without any correction at all. This service is billed once it has been carried out, and then two options arise:
- Either you don't need more than this (for instance, if you plan to make the corrections by your own means, or if no corrections are needed), and you get a very low final price;
- Or from this first job, we define together the corrections to be made, and I draw up a complementary quote for this second job; you then get the fairest final price, for an overall service perfectly matching your needs. You will thus get, in this latter case, all in all, two invoices: one for the reading-checking job, and one for the correction job.
Rest assured that all information provided will be kept strictly confidential.
To place your order, you need to approve the quote in writing and provide all the relevant documents.
Ideally, the documents to work on will be in Microsoft Word or Open Office Writer format (.doc/.docx or .odt). Other formats (such as .txt, .rtf, .htm, .html) are possible; please note that some might require more time and/or entail higher rates.
The main means of payment is bank transfer. I also accept cheques, in EUROS only and from banks domiciled in France. Cheques will be made payable to Arnaud BECK and sent to the following address: Arnaud BECK - 8 impasse Aristide Briand - 60250 ANGY - FRANCE.
When a deposit is required, the amount is stipulated in the quote, and the work will commence as soon as it is paid.
Invoices are sent by e-mail. Unless otherwise specified, they are made out in euros; all invoices are due for payment within 30 days from the date of issue of the invoice.
All my invoices are non-inclusive of tax (I am not allowed to charge VAT).
