Description of Services

Translation Service
The translation service allows Clients to obtain content in one language, based on original content in another language. As far as is possible, and taking into account the cultural and linguistic subtleties of the language in question, the Author agrees to conserve, to the best of his/her abilities, the general tone, the organisation of information, and the type of vocabulary used in the original content.

Proofreading Service
The proofreading service allows Clients to submit content to be corrected by an Author. Proofreading covers the vocabulary, grammar, spelling, punctuation and syntax used in the content. Changes to the structure and style of the Content may also be requested, provided the Client selects the appropriate service. Otherwise, the Author shall not be obliged to make changes to the structure or style. If the Client so desires, they may ask the Author to limit the check to one or more of these elements. In such cases, the Client must explain as clearly as possible in the Initial Request defining the project.

Copywriting Service
The copywriting service allows Clients to purchase original content on a given topic and to meet a specific need. Following the Initial Request, the Author conducts the necessary research on the subject in question, then writes Content that corresponds to the criteria set out by the Client in terms of word count or type of vocabulary.

Use of Services:

Translation and Proofreading:
The Client may submit a document, an extract from a database or free form text on a Second lingo website and add any explanations to guide the Author in his/her task (hereinafter referred collectively as the ‘Initial Request‘).
The Client expressly acknowledges that Second lingo’s price is based on the word count estimated by Second lingo or communicated by the Client in their Initial Request, and not on the final number of words communicated to the Client by the Author after the Service has been performed.

Copywriting Service
For each project, the Client must indicate a certain number of elements to guide the Author in his/her task (hereinafter the ‘Initial Request‘).

It is understood that:

  • The requested word count includes a margin of +/- 10% (i.e. for an order of a 500-word text you may deliver a text of 450 to 550 words). If a maximum or minimum word count is requested by the Client, the Author must abide by said maximum or minimum.
  • The ‘Keywords’ option allows the Client to indicate a set of words or phrases that the Author must integrate into the Content and the number of times that they should appear in the text. The keywords are determined by the Client and must be in the target language (example: if the text is being translated from English to Italian, the indicated keywords must be in Italian). The keywords are also case-sensitive, to ensure the most accurate keyword count possible (e.g. the acronym for search engine marketing (SEM) should be capitalized to ensure that the system does not include that combination of letters found in larger words, as in the word ‘semantics’).

The Company shall make every effort to provide a high-quality Service that meets the Client’s Initial Request.

The Client hereby acknowledges that, should the Client underestimate the word count, second lingo may charge a supplement, which the Client undertakes to pay unconditionally.

Regulations relating to orders

The Client must never:

  • order a text which could infringe on the universal individual rights of an individual or corporate body;
  • ask the Author to make comments that are libellous or offensive towards any individual or corporate body, living or dead;
  • provide content that is contrary to good morals, that encourages violence, hatred, or racism, or that is considered illegal or contrary to public policy;
  • request the translation of copyrighted material (such as a book).

Should the Company be held liable by a third party following a violation of one of these prohibitions by the Client, the Client undertakes to indemnify the Company.

The Company reserves the right to refuse to perform, or cancel the performance of, any Service that commits one of the above-mentioned violations, and to refund any payment the Client has already made, deducting an amount corresponding to the part of the Service already performed, as well as any any losses suffered by the Company in respect of the violations.


You accept that you are solely responsible for the documents and information you distribute to Authors on Second lingo (collectively referred to as ‘External Content’ and ‘External Links’).

Given the quantity of information exchanged, the Company cannot be held responsible for the accuracy and legality of content distributed via its platform.

You agree to only transmit External Content and External Links:

  • the content of which is accurate and not libellous;
  • to which you own all the rights, including intellectual property rights, or in the absence of these, that you are free to use in the context of our services;
  • that are free of all viruses, scripts, or programs of any kind;
  • that comply with all current legislation.

Your External Content and External Links are subject to our regulations on transmission to Authors, as described in our General Terms and Conditions of Sale. Second lingo reserves the right to modify these regulations at any time and without prior notice.

In addition, the Company reserves the right:

  • to refuse to transmit your External Content and External Links, or to transmit them after minor corrections or modifications;
  • to remove all External Content or External Links from its platform, at any time, and without prior notice.

Second lingo may only remove External Content and External Links from its own platform and cannot be held responsible for the removal or non-removal of your External Content and External Links from third-party websites over which we have no control.

Second lingo does everything within its power to transmit your External Content and External Links to Authors in the shortest possible time. Any errors detected in your External Content and External Links cannot be corrected by Second lingo.

If you detect an error in External Content or in an External Link, you must cancel the order if possible and begin a new order. If cancellation is impossible (e.g. because the order has already been allocated to an Author), the charges relating to this remain your responsibility.

The External Content and External Links that you publish must under no circumstances show details (name, address, email address, telephone or fax number, etc.) that would allow Authors to contact you or to identify you, directly or indirectly.


Unless expressly agreed between the Parties, the Company makes no commitments on Service completion times.

The completion times given on the Second lingo website are provided as a guide only and depend on various factors, such as the volume of Content, the complexity of the topic, and the availability of appropriate Authors, on which Second lingo can make no firm commitment.

On the other hand, the Company agrees to do everything in its power to satisfy the Client’s request within the shortest possible time period.


The Company agrees to assign projects to Authors who meet the requirements outlined by the Client in the Initial Request, especially the level of skill required (‘Basic’, ‘Standard’ or ‘Enterprise’).

The Client expressly acknowledges that, if no Authors are available to perform the Service requested, the Company reserves the right to cancel the Service ordered and to refund the amount paid by the Client.

The Client also acknowledges that they may not claim any compensation in this regard.


Once the Content has been submitted by the Author, the Client has seven calendar days to check that the Content satisfies their Initial Request.

Once this period has elapsed, the Content submitted by the Author shall be considered to have been unconditionally approved by the Client. The implementation of this condition is strictly irrevocable.

If you consider that the Content submitted does not completely meet your expectations, you can ask the Author to revise it. In such an event, you agree to be as precise as possible in your communication with the Author so as to facilitate the revision of the Content.

In the event of a revision request, the Client will be put into direct contact with the Author through a Second lingo internal messaging system. It is understood, as regards these exchanges, that:

  • in accordance with these Terms, the Client is strictly forbidden to try to obtain by any means whatsoever the Author’s contact information in order to contact him/her outside of the Second lingo platform;
  • the Company may at any time and without restrictions access the content of these exchanges, so as to be able to preside over a moderation or to check that exchanges between the Client and the Author are proceeding correctly.
