    I think we need a larger excerpt. – user178049 Apr 27 '17 at 14:45

    Was there one attachment (a "translation and invoice") or two (a translation and an invoice)? – SteveES Apr 27 '17 at 14:47
  • Here is the context. I have completed a translation and sending the file to my client. I also attach an invoice. – curious Apr 27 '17 at 14:48

    Both "the (translation and invoice)" and "the (translation) and the (invoice)" are acceptable. Normally one would use your example, unless there was a reason to emphasize the invoice. – Davo Apr 27 '17 at 14:48

    Then l'd say the translation and its invoice. – Lucian Sava Apr 27 '17 at 15:04
