help with translation: contar en su haber
 
Hi!
 
I am trying to translate the following expression for a friend who is starting her own publishing company. La empresa cuenta en su haber con X cantidad de publicaciones, etc.  The thing is she wants this expression but I havenīt been able to get a "nice" translation online. Could you pls help me?
 
Thanks in advance and thanks for your last answers!!! They were very useful :)

Dear Anabelafer,
 
How about: "The company already has X publications to its credit""The company already has X publications under its belt""The company can boast X publications to its credit"?
 
I hope that this helps you.

Hi guys!
 
Iīve just looked up the expression in an old dictionary and found Les option :)
I had found the one in wordreference but seemed a bit odd, though. I donīt know why...
Then when I got Simon & Schusterīs... it seemed perfect !
 
Are they synonyms actually?
 
Thanks again for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
