5. Payment terms

With the conclusion of the contract and/or issuing of the invoice in electronic or other form, payment of the stipulated fee is due without deduction immediately. We retain the right to demand written confirmation of the pre-payment of the amount agreed upon. This is mentioned in the offer or the offer letter and is due upon written order confirmation.

6. Offsetting

If the client wishes to offset a monetary claim, this is restricted to undisputed or legally binding claims. This also applies if the client makes a complaint or a counter-claim. However, the client can exercise a right of retention if his/her counter-claim is based on the same contract.

7. Acceptance and claims for damage

a. We are committed to providing professional and accurate translations without altering or shortening content in any way. Translations are carried out according to the sense of the text and to the quality standards generally accepted in the translation industry of each language. We may reject translations if the contents are illegal or if the text contains highly specific technical terminology.

b. The translations can be delivered by email or made available online. After completion, the client can download the translation from our server interface. We bear the risk of data loss for 14 days after the translation has been made available for download. The client must ensure that the translation is downloaded within these 14 days. After these 14 days, the client exempts us from liability for any damages resulting from the loss of translations.

c. The client is obligated to accept translations as soon as they have been sent to him/her. Should the translation prove not to be as specified in the contract, we are then obligated to remedy the defect. This does not apply if the defect is insignificant to the client’s interests or results from circumstances for which the client is responsible. If there is no significant defect, the client cannot refuse to accept.

d. If the client does not make any claims of defects within 12 working days after the delivery of the translation, the service is accepted as free of defects.

e. After this time we are no longer liable for obvious faults, unless the client has specifically designated conditions under which acceptance of the translation would be refused.

f. Defects are deemed to be significant deviations from the original text or inaccurate interpretations of the content. Stylistic improvements, such as the use of synonyms, do not constitute defects in the translation. We assume liability only for the correct reproduction of names and addresses in documents if the original document is presented in Latin characters or if the correct conversion is explicitly authorised by the client. If the client cannot read the translation in full for technical reasons on the receiving end, this is not deemed a valid defect.  Translations are delivered in UTF-8 format or in a UTF-8 code compatible format.

g. In the case of a complaint about an objectively existent and non-negligible error, we must first be given the opportunity to remedy the fault. Subsequently, the client must then allow us extra time to provide a revised version. The client must provide as much detail as possible regarding the defect.

h. If we do not rectify the defect in due time, the client can either withdraw from the contract or demand a reduction in price. In the case of minor or insignificant defects, there is no right of withdrawal or right to a reduction in price.

8. Liability

Both we and our representatives or agents are liable for gross negligence or intent, as according to the terms of the Product Liability Act; due to the assurance of the lack of a defect as well as for damages resulting from injuries to life, body or health.

Liability for slight negligence is excluded unless it is a culpable breach of core contractual obligations, in which case, liability is limited to foreseeable damages typical to the contract.
