Foreign-Language Customers

In BestInvoicing you have the possibility to create invoices to foreign-language customers. This configuration allows you to choose a language during the creation of a customer file or a document.

Activating Additional Languages

The option to display information in other languages is something that first needs to be activated in BestInvoicing:

  1. Navigate to the top right corner of the screen (email address) and select 'Apps and Integrations' in the menu.

  2. Check the list of 'All Apps and Integrations'.

  3. Click the green button 'Activate' on the line mentioning 'Foreign-Language Customers'.

  4. Click the yellow button 'Configure' to select the languages you would want to make available.

In the example below, the app is activated and some common languages used within the business environment are indicated. By default German, English, French and Dutch are selected.

For example, if when creating a new customer you have indicated that his language is 'French', documents created for this customer will be created in French.

BestInvoicing will only automatically display the translated general document values. You must enter the translation of products etc. yourself. Notice a translation mistake? Contact us at and we will correct it immediately.

If you have activated the configuration, you will encounter different places in BestInvoicing where texts can be translated. Additional tabs will appear for each language. Here are a few examples:

These translated texts will also be displayed on the generated document, in the language of the specific customer.
