Likewise we require that the Customer accepts that any dealings of any nature, and the relationship between the Customer and the Company, is regulated by Maltese law. Should any dispute or disagreement arise, while the Company undertakes to do its best to resolve this issue amicably, should the need arise the Customer hereby accepts that this disagreement or dispute is to be resolved by the Maltese Arbitration Centre, or by a tribunal or court here in Malta. In other words, the Customer accepts that Maltese law and the Maltese courts and tribunals have exclusive jurisdiction in its relationship with the Company.

5. Standard of Service
The Company acknowledges the Customer’s right to expect a professional service of a high standard and undertakes to meet the level of service and diligence laid down in article 1032 of the Maltese Civil Code. Indeed We strive to better this standard, and to be the best in the Business, but in legal terms We do not accept responsibility beyond what Maltese law stipulates in the mentioned Civil Code article 1032(1). Once We have met the level of service and diligence laid down in article 1032 of the Civil Code, We do not accept any responsibility for any financial results or consequences, whether direct or indirect, of the services we offer.
We are an ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 17100:2015 certified company and take great pride in our work. However, should you require that we use Computer Assisted Translation tools or Translation Management Systems other than those which we normally make use of, this might impact on the standard of the final product. Regrettably, under these circumstances, a reduction in standard of the final product might prove to be beyond our control.
