The Translation Process
Documents are initially translated by either Joanna and Matthew, reviewed by the other, and signed off on by both. The translated document will include a double affirmation of accuracy, and if necessary, a short translator’s note to explain any nuance that might otherwise be lost by the direct translation.

The full terms are supplied in response to the translation request, but in a nutshell they ask the attorney and client to proactively (and if necessary, reactively) mitigate any potential adverse consequence which would make it more difficult for the Stevens to continue providing this service free of charge.
