For the purposes of this Agreement,
“Source Material(s)” shall mean any electronic or other files that the Client transmits to PureFluent using the website that are intended to be the subject of services hereunder. The final translated version of the Source Material(s) shall be referred to as “Deliverable” or “Deliverables”

- en.purefluent.com is an online translation ordering site.
- The charge for the translation is based on word-count, category of text, language(s) and service requested. The word-count, as determined by PureFluent, is final and non-negotiable. The word-count is clearly visible throughout the ordering process. Any changes to this word-count will be communicated to the Client for approval.
- All prices and rates quoted are subject to change without notice prior to formal acceptance of any Order. PureFluent reserves the right to charge for additional services requested after an Order has been accepted.
- It is the responsibility of the Client to select the appropriate service and category of text for the translation of the Source Material(s). PureFluent will not accept any responsibility if the service selected does not meet the specific requirements of the Client.
- The Client can request a translation by uploading and submitting Source Material(s) to the website or sending it by email.
- The translated files will remain accessible through the website for a period of at least six months after completion unless otherwise agreed.

- The first named person on the account is the authorized business user, who has authority to add/remove users to the account.

PureFluent’s only duty and liability in the event of any errors in a translation is to correct such errors within a reasonable time.
