As I replied on your identical UserVoice item, you’ll have to contact the Spanish translator, Francisco Javier Serrador (fserrador at <mailto:fserrador at> or serrador at <mailto:serrador at>). He’s active, having just committed changes last month. I don’t believe that he monitors this list.

Inspecting es.po shows that he uses “recibo” for “invoice” and “factura” for “bill”. In GnuCash “bill” means something that one has to pay someone else.
