I have always worked for large companies when I simply had to fill out their invoice and receive a payment. I have a different case now where I have to send them my invoice. Could some of you e-mail me invoice samples that you use to charge for translation? And also, do you request a part of the payment in advance or not?

Thank you all in advance.

Irina, I would suggest you to look for a downlaodable doc. in, e.g., Microsft.com/office.
I do not remember where I got mine from, but I could send it to you if you would e-mail me.

Best regards,

Use Excel .. it has a wonderful template for invoices.

Payment: If the project is huge then I would consider the request for a partial payment not outlandish. Otherwise you negotiate the payment terms before undertaking the project (net 30, bank treansfer, wire or check etc)

And some more Apr 11, 2004

Some sites will offer you to download their templates for a fee, but there are plenty of free stuff out there.
Like these:

You could even bill the clients straight from this last one...

What an invoice must contain Apr 11, 2004

An invoice must contain the word "invoice", your contact details, the client's contact details, the date of the invoice, a description of the job done, and the amount invoiced. That's it. You can arrange it in any sequence as long it's clear. You can optionally add the dates of the jobs, details about how the rate was calculated, how the client should pay, etc.

Some companies will insist on an invoice with a nice letterhead. If the company insists on a signature, add the line "this is an invoice, not a receipt" below the signature. Some companies require faxed or snail mailed invoices, others are satisfied with an MS Word document and still others are quite happy if you just mention the details in your e-mail together with the word "INVOICE" somewhere in it.

This information is generally correct, but some countries may have additional requirements.
