If the text to be translated contains unknown abbreviations, technical jargon or already established terms that the Provider must take into account, the Client undertakes to provide appropriate explanations or terminology or appoint a contact person whom the Provider can contact for any clarifications. Otherwise, the Provider shall use the reference materials available and translate the text to the best of his knowledge and ability. If the Client fails to fulfill this obligation, all complaints due to inappropriate use of terminology will be rejected as unfounded.

If the Client does not pay the invoice on time, he waives the right to complaints.
