Hello!

I was wondering if anybody could recommend a program for invoicing and receivables. I would like something simple that will alert me of overdue invoices or at least has a receivables report function.

If it is free, that's nice, but if you have something low-cost, I will consider it.

Thanks!

I use Translation Office 3000 Aug 31, 2005

It is about 150 euros. In my opinion it is worth it as I spend far less time in paperwork and record maintenance than before. You can download a free fully functional version (1 month period) and see if it suits you.
It was discussed recently there : http://www.proz.com/topic/36224, and there are many threads about it in the Proz fora.
all the best,
Philippe

Not for free, but highly valuable Sep 1, 2005

You should try Quicken. It's about $55-75 USD and it pays for itself every time you open it! Besides, depending on the bank you work with, you can probably download your statements and keep it all up to date in one safe place. Invoicing is wonderful and you can set it to view only those uncleared payments and sort them by due date, so you can easily send a reminder to those clients which invoices appear at the top of the screen. I don't know how it works for Canada, but we've also been keeping track of business expenses, so that we can export the whole statement at the end of the year and make it really easy to fill out our taxes e-files.

Good luck!

I've downloaded and tried to install the demo version several times, but it always gives me an error mesaage: rtl60.bpl file could not be found, reinstall. I think this is a very honest approach to potentional customers.:):)

I didn't have any problems when I installed the trial version. It may be related to your OS setup.
You can try and contact support@translation3000.com to explain your problem, they're usually very responsive.
Good luck,
Philippe

TOPIC STARTER
Finally, I can save time - and eventually money Dec 8, 2005

Hello,

I have given a try to Translation Office 3000 and was amazed by how perfectly it fits within my workflow - and by many other things, such as how easy it is to learn.

This jewel of a program gave me all the tools I needed and I now have my license. I knew that by getting a program such as this one would save me a lot of time and speed up the boring part of freelancing - invoicing, word-count, etc. - but I would never have guessed it could make my work THIS MUCH easier. It saves me a lot of time - which in the end is money.

Thanks for recommending it. I also wrote an article on it that you can see at http://www.proz.com/translation-articles/articles/557/1/How-to-organize-a-translation-office--with-Translation-Office-3000

Thanks again!
