Hi everyone

I am still new to freelance translating and am trying to find an example of terms and conditions or a purchase order so I can get an idea of how to set mine out. It would be great if anyone has any tips on the best way to do this. I have had a look at several agency ones online and they all look pretty similar, but as a freelancer, does mine have to be different???

Many thanks in advance

Stacey

Purchase order/T&C Dec 13, 2005

Hi Stacey,

Purchase order is something you receive, so you do not need a sample, unless you outsource work. You might need an invoice template. I got mine off Microsoft Excell templates page, just customize it as good as you can and on you go.
As to Terms and Conditions, I believe you can find general T&C on IOL and ITI websites (I cannot remember which one I used).

Good luck!
Burrell

Hiya,

This was discussed not so long ago in www.proz.com/topic/40037.


And, Burrell, I beg to disagree: you indeed issue POs to your customers.

Good luck,
Jerónimo

Actually it's the purchaser who issues the PO Dec 13, 2005

My customers issue the PO with the conditions we agree. I then sign, do the work and subsequently invoice, quoting the order number.
Some customers require an "offer", which I make, stating my terms and if they agree to those terms, they confirm with a PO.
That's how I've always seen it done in all realms of business.
In point of fact, the link is about a contract or agreement, not about a PO.
Good luck, Stacey.

About POs - My bad Dec 13, 2005

Hi there,

Sorry I wasn't able to make myself clear: I meant that in occasions, I've sent my customers a blank PO for them to know what I need.

Angela, thanks for explaining where I failed to.

Kind regards,
Jerónimo

That's OK, J Dec 13, 2005

I didn't want anyone to get confused - your idea of a blank PO is very good because not all customers use them and it's better to have some document proving they hired you to do the job!
It should state:
- your name and address
- customer's name and address
- job description (length, languages, due date)
- price agreed
- payment terms
- possibly a progressive number and certainly a date.
