I'm learning Chinese, and trying to use it more in my daily life, e.g. by making to-do lists in Chinese. What's the Chinese term for a to-do list, and what are words you might use if you finish something on your list? In English, I would say 'tick', but might also say 'finished' or 'done'. Would you say 做了 or 办了 or maybe something else?
There's no exact word-to-word translate in Chinese. Generally we refer things like to-do list as 待办事项 (tasks to be finished) or 任务清单(list of tasks).
Just as @Khahoe Tan said, I recommend using 完成 or 已完成 to mark as
It is called 事項表 (items list).
the 'to do things' on a 'to- do- list' are items (事項)
事項= matters/ items
事項表 = a list of matters/items (that have to be dealt with)
You can refer To-Do List as "未完成"(To be completed) Or “未完成列表”
For the word that can be used when finishing something, I would use “完成” which means "Completed" to indicates that a task is done. Of course, using a tick √ has no problem as well as it is easier and more convenient.
It is also called
事务 that means you have not finished it.
