    What will the Customer pay for?

    Hello.

    Arrival of the Customer’s representatives at the Contractor’s enterprise to review the fault detection and the acceptance of the engines on the test bench after repair, acceptance of the compressors after repair to be paid by the Customer.

    Does it mean that the Customer will pay for the following:

    a/ Arrival of the Customer’s representatives at the Contractor’s enterprise to review the fault detection and accept the engines on the test bench after repair; b/ acceptance of the compressors after repair?

    I think so but I am not sure.

    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    This is very badly written. Where are you getting all this text from?

    It is a contract to repair engines. Did I get the meaning right?

    It's impossible to say.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Re: What will the Customer pay for?

    The sentence is incomplete. There's no way to know what its author intended.

    Well, we do know that the "acceptance of the compressors after repair to be paid by the Customer." I think that gives a hint. Though I'm not sure what exactly is to be paid by the customer.

    Jacek1, at 21:11 (time stamp the post), you said you would bear in mind my advice that you should not put more than one empty line space between paragraphs in your post.
    Post #1 on his thread is timed at 21:33, just twenty minutes after the other one, yet it contains multiple examples of more than one empty line between paragraphs. Please click on Edit Post and remove all those extraneous line breaks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
