Dear friends
I am translating something for my boss. It's like a declaration from his housemaid that she has received her sallary for three years and I need quick help to translate the following statements into English:

It should start something like this

" I am the undersigned "so and so" I confirm that I received an amount of USD .... "
is this statement correct ? Is there a better start?

at the end there should be a statement to the effect that she signs and put her fingerprint on the paper as an evidence of her agreement

she started work on 20/10/2002 with an advance payment of USD600, her monthly wage is USD 150, so her is to be paid or due after 4 months "

how can say this in good English?

I would appreciate your prompt help

thanks

Hi,

You seem to be writing a receipt.

I am translating something for my boss. It's like a declaration from his housemaid that she has received her sallary for three years and I need quick help to translate the following statements into English:

It should start something like this " I am the undersigned "so and so" I confirm that I received an amount of USD .... "

I, the undersigned Mary Smith, confirm that I have received from Fred Jones the amount of $500 (US) .... as payment for my services as housemaid for the last three years.


at the end there should be a statement to the effect that she signs and put her fingerprint on the paper as an evidence of her agreement

Signed __________ ( Mary Smith)

Witnessed by __________ (Henry Lee)

Date 25/Sept/2005

she started work on 20/10/2002 with an advance payment of USD600, her monthly wage is USD 150, so her is to be paid or due after 4 months "

how can say this in good English?

This money was paid as follows.

$600 (US) on 20/Oct/2002

$xxxx (US) on 25/Sept/2005

She doesn't get paid very often, does she?

Best wishes, Clive
