|Translation fees: variable dependant on language and number of words.
|Interpreters fees: These fees are difficult to estimate, and we will have to obtain a quote from a third-party interpreter who we will use. Sometimes only a couple of hours is needed with an interpreter, other applications may need 10 or 15 hours. The number of hours needed will vary on the complexities of the case. Clients do not always need to use an interpreter of our choosing and may bring a friend or associate to come and help interpret.
|Independent expert reports e.g. medical experts. These are not required in many cases: we will let you know as soon as possible if we consider an expert report is necessary.
