    Where did you hear this? What was the context? Please give the full sentence which contained this phrase.

    Please also note that you must start every sentence with a capital letter in written English.

    Thank you.
    For example.. "Could I have a quote on your translation service"?
    Is it correct?

    Thanks

    I'd use "quote for" in that sentence.

    Re: Meaning of "quote on"

    It's not a phrase as such.It's just a noun used with a preposition, as in the following:

    I found that quote on page 65.
    He wrote the quote on the board.
    He passed the quote on to his colleague.
    He gave me a quote for his services.
