Legal Aid Translation
£ 100 per one thousand words

The Guidance on Remuneration of Expert Witnesses (6.20 -6.22) confirms that a rate of £100 per 1,000 words is considered reasonable for translation as this is the rate that prior authority would not be required.

Legal Aid – Cancellation Fee

According to the Civil Finance Electronic Handbook, no cancellation fee will be payable if the expert is cancelled more than 72 hours before a hearing.
