Our policy

The cost of translation depends on the complexity of the text, terminology and the formatting of text and graphics. For an accurate quote, each project needs to be assessed as a whole. If the final document is not available, we suggest that you provide a representative sample text.

Modern IT is constantly coming up with new formats and applications, making it impossible to give a standard cost for translation.

Estimating the price for website is not the same thing as assessing the translation of a PDF or an SDL Studio file.

Although the cost is mostly based on the number of words, translating a word in a text file and translating a word inserted in an image file involves a different process.

Digital media and materials entrusted to us belong to our clients. We acknowledge the confidentiality of the content of the said media and are subject to the obligation of professional secrecy (as per article 226-13 of the French Penal Code). Jecy may also offer to sign a NDA with the client at the beginning of the project, and prevent any confidential information from being distorted or disclosed to non-authorized parties by taking adequate and reasonable measures.
