Written translation – We have reduced our rates even further to £99/1000 words - LAA Guidance V3 states prior approval is not required for rates of less than £100/1,000 words. Please note, this rate does not include additional proof-reading. We recommended additional proof-reading, especially for larger word-counts and/or when a certificate of authentic translation is required.

Additional Proof-reading – always recommended and available on request; priced on a project-by-project basis, but no higher than £65/1k words

Transcription – available at LAA Guideline approved rates

Liability

Your acceptance of this Quotation and/or acceptance of any Services we provide, constitutes a legal, commercial agreement between us, and as such it is your responsibility to pay our invoices irrespective of your arrangement with the LAA or any decision made by them since it is you who have instructed us and placed the order with us. This applies even if, after we have delivered our service, the LAA refuse to pay the rates you have agreed to pay us. 

Talking Heads makes every effort to ensure our rates and terms are acceptable to the LAA however, we have no relationship with them, and for this reason, all fees must be approved and accepted by you in advance of our providing any service.

If there is any other way we can help you to suit the requirements of the Legal Aid Agency, we are very happy to discuss this with you as well as any other matter, and thank you very much for your custom.
