As treasurer of a 501(c)3 I use GnuCash to keep the organization's
books. I am a bit puzzled by the "if account descriptions are modified".
For the books themselves I can't see what modifications would be
required. For the reports as generated you could either use custom
reports (more trouble than worthy) or do as is normally done, after
exporting the reports, edit the titles, etc. as your heart desires.
In other words, the "raw" reports aren't what you would pass out to the
board of directors (or file with governmental agencies) but the finished
reports. In our case we produce the "Income Statement" and "Balance
Sheet" reports out of GnuCash but these are just the DATA used for the
finished product annual report according to GAAP for non-profits. That's
going to be produced under the control of some editor anyway, so you
simply change the names, etc. then.
There is no possibility of social justice on a dead planet except the equality of the grave.
