French term or phrase: SP
"Relecture:.... SP"

A French company is asking me for a quote.

English translation:on-site
Explanation:
I would think the most likely explanation is 'sur place', as I have been asked in the past to do translation / proofreading work on a customer's premises, as the material involved was of very confidential nature!

Explanation:
SP might be the English abbreviation for spelling, i.e., they want you to check spelling; or could it be sous peu (they want it soon)?

Services professionnels OR sur place


Explanation:
You haven't given us much context, so here are two probable terms:

1. From Termium:

French:Organizations and Administrative Units
Services professionnels s CORRECT,SEE RECORD
SP s CORRECT,SEE RECORD
OBS - En usage à la DSTM - Affaires indiennes. s

And here's an example for "services professonels" I found, doing a Google search:

RO 10 - PARTIE 2 - ARTICLES COURANTS
... les contrats d'entretien, de services professionels, aide temporaire, besoins divers et ... sgt S. Wulf, superviseur des svcs sp, tel:(613)996-9410 ou ...
www.dnd.ca/admfincs/organiz/cfsuo/csss/ro/ro2000/10prt2_f.a...

2. It might also be (from Termium):

French:Telephones
sur place s CORRECT
SP s CO

If you are to do the proofreading at their offices, "sur place" would apply.

Here are some Websites I located via Google where "SP" is paired with "sur place"
