Yes, The service tax is applicable only for the clients based in INDIA. First you need to get the service tax registration number.

situation might change if 2012 budget is approved May 4, 2012

Translation services weren't under service tax purview in India before budget 2012. Specifically, the export of services; and even if it was for Indian clients there was an exemption of 10 lac on gross.

But the situation has changed since budget 2012 hsa been announced. It is still a topic of great debate. For clarifications, we have asked many Chartered Accountants about the service tax provisions for the export of translation services.

Though, the discussions have been inconclusive and is still a matter of debate. Even the budget 2012 isn't yet been approved.
