Project Schedules and Express Services

TBSJ will suggest a schedule at standard rates for each project based on your requirements and translator availability, but we understand that timing is often a priority and offer a reliable express service to accommodate time-critical projects.

Express Fee Schedule

The table below shows our express fees. We will always consult with you if we think the requested schedule is not practical given other aspects of the project that are also important to you.
