Devis Pre-OP

11:24 Jan 29, 2015
French to English translations [PRO]
Business/Commerce (general) / Accounting / Invoicing
French term or phrase: Devis Pre-OP
This appears in a legal agreement setting out invoicing terms.
As yet in my own research I have not been able to confirm an often-used translation for what seems to be a straightforward tem, so any help appreciated. Thanks.

Without seeing the context I'm not sure of the formality required. However, I'd agree that Pre-OP implies "before commencing the job" so perhaps this is to represent an upfront quote after which there could be further charges, hence: estimate.
