Why choose Sean O’ Connor Translation Services?


I have worked as a solicitor and as a translator from French into English of the court reports at the European Court of Justice. My experience gives me special insight into the needs of legal translation clients, both private and business.

I am a member of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting . I am also a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists . Translation is not a regulated profession, but when you commission work from a member of a reputable translation institute, you can be sure that the person you are working with is held to high professional standards. As part of my membership I am required to continually develop my skills and I draw upon the resources of these two translation bodies to ensure I provide an excellent service to my clients.

I specialise in legal translations and have honed my skills in this area. As a consequence, you can be sure that your translation will accurately reflect the intention of the original document.

If you need your French to English translation certified, just ask and I can provide the certificate. The cost of this will be included in your quotation.

When you contact me, I will ask you a few questions about the work you want done. I will need information about:

  • formats (for example, PDFs, paper documents, handwritten documents)
  • nature of the documents (for example, a lease or a court pleading)
  • quantity of material (for example, number of pages needing translation)
  • special requirements (for example, certification, paper copy sent by post)
  • deadlines and turn-around time.

This will allow me to give you a quote for the work. You can then make arrangements to send me the documents by the agreed date.
Once you have paid, I will start work on your French to English translation. At or before the agreed deadline you will receive an electronic copy of your translation. I can put a hard copy in the post if this is required.

For short translations (up to 5,000 words) I will complete the translation and once it is ready, I will ask for a bank transfer to my account. After this has been confirmed, I will send the translation out the same day or on the next working day latest. 

For longer translations (over 5,000 words) I will ask for an upfront provision that will be requested by arrangement, but I can determine this after we've had a conversation. Start by enquiring on my contact form .
