    correct sentence?

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether the following sentence is correct:

    A guarantee repair means replacement of defective Goods with equipment free of defects at the registered office of the seller within the agreed period.

    Thanks a lot!

    Re: correct sentence?

    The minimal change is to say "guaranteed repair" or "repair under warranty"; but check carefully the legal difference (in the UK, in the USA) between "guarantee" and "warranty".

    A guaranteed repair means replacement of defective Goods with equipment free of defects at the registered office of the seller within the agreed period.

    Almost.

    If you are, as I suspect, translating a contract, then "Goods" are capitalized if they have been formally defined -- as they often are.
