Talk to an attorney Jan 23, 2008

One clause you could put into a contract is along the lines that liability is limited to the amount of the translation fees. But only an attorney could tell you whether such a clause is legal and whether it protects you.

Paul, thanks. Yours is the safest approach. I'd hoped there would be a kind skeleton contract floating around geared towards this domain.
My chamber of commerce seems to have something, but that requires some adaptaion.
have fun
Bert
