Don't despise me please... Mar 2, 2009

But my invoices were all "created" on plain old MS Word

(that was until I quit freelancing last September), so I chose "Other - NA".

Word, and only Word Mar 2, 2009

I believe everybody has at least one template in some kind of format, and in my case, it's Word. I just have to add or delete the necessary information on the template, and voila, the invoice is done.

Very simple Mar 2, 2009

I simply have a Excel template where I can fill in all the blanks according to the different jobs/clients. And then I create a PDF from that, so no one can modify it.

Em.

Word Mar 2, 2009

In Excel I bookkeep all earlier invoices, which I have stored in folders with the concerning year as name.
So, with CTR+F I look in my Excel sheet when I made the last invoice for the actual client, go to Word, open the last invoice, adapt
name
index number
date
amount
and make a PDF of it. Then I update the Excel bookkeeping file. Works fine.

If a translator has to create a document... Mar 2, 2009

.... I wonder what his/her instinctive choice might be?

One of them there new-fangled word processng contraptions, I shouldn't wonder.

I, of course, create mine using vellum and a quill, hand delivered to clients by the nearest street urchin in exchange for a shiny penny.

Why not?

Whenever I send them by snail mail, they are also printed on our special, light-green, textured paper with watermark and matching envelopes.

Word... Mar 2, 2009

The business is not that big to have some special business-management tool... I make invoices using Word and export them to PDF...

Word and pdf Mar 2, 2009

Easy and looks good. I hate those excel-files where all importanta information is in small print, like the bank account number...
Regards

I find this method uncomplicated and perfectly fine. I used to work for one company that sent me an invoice template in Excel that I had to use. I loathe and despise Excel, so I'm glad I don't work for them any more!
