  • [NEW] Fully changed a way how SDL Trados Studio integration works! Now, instead of connector utility which had to be copied into Trados installation directory, you can use Trados Plug-In, which handles all the communication between two platforms. In addition, with this plug-in you, you will get few button on the Studio toolbar to perform some actions (quote, job and invoice creation) right from within Studio (when you firstly create projects in Trados Studio, not in BaccS).
    Plug-in is released in SDL App Store: http://appstore.sdl.com/app/baccs-plug-in/897/
    Welcome to try, share impressions and ideas. Have a lot of plans about this plug-in for future! New documentation article:

3.1.59 (14-feb-2018)

  • [BREAKING CHANGE] Please read carefully. System of translation assignments got an important change. Previously assignments were created over a job, without linking of individual tasks. From now, each task in translation assignment MUST be linked with one of task from a base translation job. For this, new 'Translation job task' column has been added to the 'Assignment tasks' table. During update, the program will make an attempt to automatically set correspondence for existing assignments. If it won’t be possible to do automatically, you will see a corresponding message and then a list of assignments which require manual correction.

I addition, each job task also has separate fields for time tracking, with the same incorporated buttons. When time tracker is used for a job task, total job time is calculated by summing work times of all job tasks.

  • [NEW] Now the program can be installed and launched from the Program files folder without need to provide administrative rights! In this case, program settings and database file will be stored in the common program folder.

Then, all lists (jobs, invoices, ledger, etc.) contain three new columns (all hidden by default): Date in financial year, Financial year and Financial month. You can show these columns using Column chooser. Quick filters in these columns can be used to quickly filter a list by financial year. Also, you can use them to build custom QuickReports to compare values based on financial year instead of a calendar year.

  • Customer category – added ‘Code’ field, which can be used as a variable when generating invoice file names.
  • Ledger – added ‘Notes’ column, which displays notes from a corresponding document.

3.1.55 (06-feb-2018)

  • [BREAKING CHANGE] IMPORTANT for those who use custom invoice templates. Previously VAT number was included in the ‘Full address’ field. Now it’s changed, and VAT is NO MORE included in this field. Please, make corresponding adjustments in your invoice templates to add VAT number field below address or in another place.
  • [NEW] CV are back. In today’s update there are 4 built-in CV templates. About 3-4 templates will be added in next updates. Since all translators prefer to use own CV designs, you can just use built-in templates as examples for creating own ones. All CV templates can be found under Reports – Reports navigation item.

The first one is a shortened version of the Workload planner – it shows planned workload for upcoming three days (includes customer logo and name, deadline, total volume and deadline). The second one is a bar chart showing monthly volumes for a selected period of time. Since it’s difficult to fit a lot of widgets in one main dashboard, it was decided to create a new one.
  • Invoice editing form – both number fields (numeric and formatted) had identical names. Second field is renamed to ‘Number (f)’.
  • Settings – Invoice settings – added ‘Numbering reset date’ field, which allows to explicitly set a day when program should start new invoice numeration chain. If the first number should differ from 1, manually correct it in the very first invoice.
  • Fixed json import bug (when importing data from previous version or from backup).
  • Dashboard – small redesign of the ‘Ready to invoice’ widget to make it more compact.
  • Languages – added ‘Flag’ column. This flag will be displayed in the job editing form to better visualize language pair.

  • Improved date entering experience: 1. Cursor now automatically moves from date to month and from month to year. 2. When calendar is opened, you can use scroll wheel to quickly switch between months.
  • CAT analysis import – when you set a correspondence between CAT tool’s fuzzy name and internal fuzzy type, this correspondence will be saved and loaded next time you import similar analysis file. Example: in Lionbridge TWS tool fuzzy match is named as ‘Fuzzy50_74’, but in BaccS similar fuzzy type’s name is ‘50% - 70%’. Since the program can’t detect it automatically, you have to select this correspondence manually when importing such analysis file for the first time.
  • Small bug fixes.

3.1.52 (29-jan-2018)

  • [NEW] Network version – added support for the PostgreSQL database management system. Comparing to SQL Server, it provides same performance, fully free, has no limits on database file size, installation takes a few minutes, it supports Windows/Linux/Mac, and has built-it GUI utility to manage a server, create and restore backups, etc.
  • Network mode – database is automatically created if it does not exist on server (previously you had to create it manually, otherwise program generated error message).
  • Security system – Edit role – added a button to pre-fill ‘Type permissions’ table with a default set of objects available in BaccS, so you don’t need to manually create a new row for each type.
  • Translation job – when you save a job with unstopped time tracking timer, the program will warn about this and offer to stop it.
  • CAT analysis import – improved behavior when ‘Convert to lines’ option is selected. Now word and character counts will be summarized with taking fuzzy weights into account.

  • Fixes in Excel template for importing contractors.

3.1.51 (25-jan-2018)

  • Ledger - double click on any row allows to open corresponding document editing form.
  • Added YouTube button on the Support tab of the ribbon menu.

3.1.44 (05-jan-2018)

Sorry for the second update during the day, but it was needed to fix small, but important bug:

  • It was impossible to assign users to roles and roles to users. As a result, very complex security system actually didn't work.

Otherwise, if you use Workload planner, it will display estimate progress based on current time. If workload planner is turned off, the program will calculate the progress on the base of deadline and job creation date. If something will be working incorrectly, please drop me a message.
  • Main ribbon - added 'Create WIWO' button (displayed only for those who is connected to ProZ.com account) - allows to quickly create new WIWO entry. Will be grateful for any feedback about this button.
  • Program Settings - Application settings - new option - 'Add "Sent with BaccS" row at the end of the messages' when using built-in mail sender. Asking you to leave this option turned on - maybe it will help to promote BaccS a little.
  • Mail sender - added new variables: job currency, job language pair, job services, assignment language pair, assignment services, assignment amount, assignment currency). I'm going to regularly improve mail sender in near future.

3.1.39 (23-DEC-2017)

  • Blue Board face lift finished! All forms were re-designed, and new button added on the main toolbar which recommends you to leave feedback for customers you work with. This button disappears when there are no customers to leave feedback for (or when you are not connected to ProZ.com).
  • QuickReports (Dashboards) fixes - now it's easier to start creating own dashboards (fixes in initial wizard).
  • Minor fixes.

3.1.38 (19-DEC-2017)

  • Translation job and translation assignment - price auto pick-up mechanism is now much smarter! When editing job/assignment task, the program will offer a price even if there is no exact corresponding price in the program settings. Example: you have default price 0.08 EUR per no-match word and trying to enter new job task with "Lines" unit and 90 fuzzy match. The system will use that per-word price to calculate per-line price using adjustment factors of the "Lines" unit (for example, 5) and fuzzy type (for example, 80). In the result, you will get 0.08 x 5 x 90 / 100 = 0.36 EUR! Of course, you still can explicitly enter default rates for any unit and fuzzy type, and described mechanism will be used only when such default rate is not found.
  • Customers - ProZ.com Blue Board integration face lift. More changes coming soon.
  • Customers - fixes in "Import from Excel" function.
  • Contractors - added "Import from Excel" function.

  • Translation job editing form - fixed height of the "Notes" field.

3.1.37 (15-DEC-2017)

  • Translation project - added 'Responsible person' field.
  • Contractors - added 'Default currency' field. This currency will be selected by default when creating assignments for the corresponding contractor. If default currency is empty, than job's currency will be used.
  • Small fixes in the recent v7 invoice template.
  • More fixes in ProZ.com connection procedure (Plus subscribers could experience problems with aborted connection and switching to Demo mode, which required to re-connect to ProZ.com profile from the program Settings).

  • Jobs - fixed an issue when it was impossible to change Job status when job amount is zero.
  • CAT data import UI fully refreshed. Instead of wizard, clicking on Import button expands drop-down list, where you select what you want to import. Depending on choice, corresponding dialog window appears. In general, workflow is more fluent now, in line with overall BaccS design.
  • CAT data import - MemoQ analysis file - if the file contains analysis results for multiple languages, than you will be able to select which language to import.
  • Some changes under the hood - preparing for future larger updates.
  • Bug fixes.

  • Translation project - added 'PO number' field.
  • Contractors list - added 'Archived' and 'Archive reason' fields. Allow to hide archived contractors from the main list (see built-in filters). Also, added 'Archive' button, which allows to mark selected contractors as archived.
  • Bug/issues fixes.

3.1.30 (01-DEC-2017)

  • New approach to save behavior. When you create a job/invoice/assignment not from list view, but from customer/project/job editing forms, then clicking Save button in the created operation leads to its immediate saving. Previously, such new objects were not saved until parent object was saved. Example: when you created an assignment from a job editing form, this assignment wasn't saved until parent job was saved. Now such assignments will be saved immediately. In addition, these objects are created in tabs instead of pop-up windows.
  • Job editing form - added 'Responsible person' field. It is hidden by default. To show it, open job editing form customization dialog.

  • Better support for high DPI screens (previously you could notice blurry image).
  • TO3000 import fixes.
  • As always, bug fixes.

3.1.26 (27-nov-2017)

  • New feature - last minute invoice form editing. When you click Print button to get invoice form preview, sometimes you may need to correct text alignment, or simply make minor changes here and there. From now, it is possible to make such corrections. This feature is supported only in default invoice templates. To turn in on in your own templates, please open it in the designer and change EditingOptions property of the corresponding control(s) in your template.
  • ProZ.com invoice importing - now the program creates a corresponding job for each imported invoice.
  • Translation project editing window - possibility to clone a job even if the project is not saved.

  • A number of minor bug fixes - thank you for sending bug reports!

3.1.25 (24-nov-2017)

  • Job editing form - added 'Save and invoice' button. Allows to save current job, close editing form and immediately create a new invoice based on this job.
  • Changes in Invoice editing form. Instead of 2 panes with invoice rows and available jobs (it was possible to drag rows from right table to the left one), now there is only one main table and a button called 'Add jobs', which opens pop-up window to select jobs you'd like to add to an invoice. This is done for ergonomic reasons.
  • Incoming payment editing form - same changes as in invoice editing form.
  • Outgoing payment editing form - same changes as in invoice editing form.

3.1.23 (21-nov-2017)

  • Performance improvements in tables. From now, DirectX library is used for rendering, when possible.
  • New way to quickly create jobs. Instead of the gallery in the Tools tab of the ribbon, a new 'Quick job creation' button is added to the main tab. When clicked, you can select one of your main customers or simply create an empty job. This button is always visible, no matter which tab is selected.
  • Settings - added '...' in the 'Invoice save folder' field.
  • Job editing form - job tasks. Added a button to calculate quantity from amount value. Corresponding shortcut - F6.

  • Minor bug fixes.

3.1.21 (14-nov-2017)

  • Default invoice templates were re-designed a bit. Now the structure became much easier to understand, and all built-in invoice templates contain one detail report instead of two (previously, one detail report was used to display invoice rows with empty job, and second detail report was used to display invoice rows with non-empty job). Recommend to check new templates in the designer (copy one of predefined templates) - you will find them much cleaner.
  • Job - when 'Notes' field isn't cloned when creating new job on the base of previous one.
  • All lists - when Refresh button is pressed, the program persists selection and groups state.
  • Minor bug fixes.

3.1.20 (13-nov-2017)

  • All lists - when closed, the program will save selected row and group expansion status.
  • Dashboards module - now your dashboards will be added to the context of the corresponding entity types. Example: if dashboard is build on the base of translation jobs data, this dashboard will be added to the context of the Translation jobs command in the navigation tree, under QuickReports item. This new function allows to get access to your custom reports in the context of target object type, not only via Reports section. In future I will add more build-in QuickReports (Dashboards).
  • Analysis module depreciated. Since Dashboards module can solve all similar tasks in much more user-friendly way, I've decided to delete Analysis module.
  • Fixed a bug when it was impossible to create more than 2 e-mail accounts.
