I am in search of good way to manage my daily business information such as "agency/client list," "work list," "invoices," and etc which are currently scattered all over my PC folders.

I am thinking of using Access 2000 to do this job but all the template from Microsoft official page does not quite suit my need as translator. I'm not so database savvy so I'd like to avoid making database from scratch.

Does anyone know if good database template for freelance translator exist on the web? Could you enlighten me on how to manage basic business information without spending too much time?

Hello mieuxy,

I used an assortment of Excel files for a while, but recently acquired Translation Office 3000 and I have been quite pleased with it. I still have not had time to figure out all its functions, but it is known for a very responsive customer service. I believe you can download a test version for 15 days.

You should find plenty of information on management systems if you do a search in these forums.

Cheers,

Thanks Susana !

This software was the first thing came up when I google searched for office solutions specific to the translator. I'm glad to know that Proz.com member is happy about it. Going with software package may be the least time consuming way....

I wonder if there is any other bright idea for solo operation on sorting out piled up information.
