Our Invoices & Estimates now speak your language

Since this article was published, we have updated Invoice Templates. You can get updated information here.

Our longstanding vision has been to make Avaza the go-to small business productivity App of the world. A few months ago, we added support for globalized numbers & currency formats, and now we are super happy to announce multilanguage support: you now have the option of localising your estimates and invoices for your customers in whatever language you want. It’s even possible to maintain different language versions of these, and choose the appropriate language depending on your client’s requirements.

How does it work?

Let’s imagine that you have a few customers who wish to receive their invoices & estimates in Spanish language. In order to ensure maximum flexibility, we give you the control to enter a translation for each label that is visible to your customer on invoices & estimates.

Simply follow the steps below.

  1. Navigate to Settings Cog  > Invoice Settings, scroll to the bottom of the page and open one of templates.

  2. Invoice templates allow you to customize the look of your estimate or invoice by uploading logo, entering default notes, enabling payment providers etc. To these options we have added a brand new section called Override Invoice Labels.
  3. Override Invoice Lables is grouped into logical sections based on how invoice and estimates are viewed. For example the top part is called Header, followed by Items Table and so forth.

  4. Click the Header to view the list of available labels. Start with entering the Spanish word you would like to display for Invoice Header Title. The default English word is Tax Invoice, but you may wish to simply display the word Invoice in Spanish. With Avaza Override Labels you are in full control of what translated text is displayed for each label.

  5. Enter the translated text for each label and save the template.
  6. You can create as many templates as you wish. For example if you have some customers who need to receive their invoice in Spanish and others in English then leave the default template as is and create a second template with override labels in Spanish.
  7. Depending on the language that is more common, set the appropriate template as default. This will assign the default template to newly created customers, however you can always change the template assigned to a customer by editing the customer record.

  8. Now that you have the override labels in Spanish, go to an existing Invoice or Estimate that is using that template and view it in either Web View or PDF. You will notice that the labels that are overridden in Spanish now appear in Spanish.
