This is a case study illustrating how a Greek translation company recovered  a large debt from UK translation company, writes Steven Little, of Debt Collect UK LimitedOur Greece-based client was owed £109,000 (€125,000) from a UK translation company. The invoices raised were between 1 – 6 months old. Our client had no idea how to pursue the debt.
