Translation job

Today a client called. Could I translate an eight-page employment contract into English by the end of March? Answer: most probably, although I need to see the document before I confirm that.

I’m now asking myself when a client last phoned up and wanted something in a civilized period of time? Almost everything recently has been for the next day. I’ve forgotten how to time things like this.

  1. There are also updates of German & Swedish-into-English tax statutes for US investors going around, also with a record-long deadline: end of April.

  2. It depends how long the texts are. I presume they are gigantic?
    I have something on my desk with a deadline of over six months, but it is a big project. But when was I last given a civilized deadline for an ordinary short contract?
