I am looking into the market to see in 2018 what are some good free freelancer accounting software available. Online and offline. I need both actually.

1 I can access online from anywhere, just using an Internet connection. And another offline I can use on my Windows PC.

I am also looking to see what is the best free CAT tool out there : Omega T ?

Ideally I would be looking for a free accounting software that is both available online and offline, if this is possible..

It's already invented Aug 10

And it's called "Excel". Using a cloud storage (MS OneDrive) and Office 365 subscription, it's also accessible to you from anywhere in the World online on whatever of your devices.

Better than Excel Aug 11

In fact, our accounting software for translators was born out of Excel fileicon_smile.gif)) The idea to make it came to me when one translation agency sent Excel-file with a list of uninvoiced jobs around March asking me to invoice them. The total was something like USD1500+ so I have thought that I am losing a lot from other clients just because do not have time to do regular chores like accounting.

If you or anyone else are tight on budget, write to support and ask for free edition license key, just mention this post. It is very limited but does the job. We have released it just once in exchange of Facebook share or something like that. We would be happy if it will help you organize your clients and finances and you can consider an upgrade after it saves you a lot of money )

BTW, it is one of the last chances to get 'owned version' as we a switching to renewable pricing soon.

I recommend BaccS (both Windows and online version available) Aug 11

Btw, it's actually free if you have the Proz.com Plus package.

Info: https://www.ibaccs.com/

I use the Windows version and am very happy with it.
