    Translation correct?

    ist ...zu... - is to be / must be

    Source Language Term

    ist ...zu...


    is to be / must be

    Examples/ definitions with source references
    Die Reisekostenabrechnung ist bei xxx einzureichen.

    The travel expense report is to be / must be handed in to xxx.
    My question is this: this document contains a lot of ist...zu... sentences. I personally do not like the form is to and prefer must. Would this communicate the same urgency or too much?

    Please turn travel expenses in to ..

    e.g.; this would be one way of expressing it, IMO.

    Or, if the context is a contract or similar: "shall be submitted", etc.
