  • Assignment – write a message to contractor – file selection dialog displayed before writing a message also allows to select files attached to a base job and base job’s project.

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.
  • [NEW] New time tracker. Instead of separate tab with time tracking rows, now you can track time using Start timer and Stop timer buttons right in the Work time field. 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] Possibility to move/store database file in desired folder. To change default location (which is set to 'database' folder inside program installation folder), please open program settings, switch to Application settings tab and click zoom button in the 'Database file path' field.
  • [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. At the same time, the program becomes non-portable in this case (for example, it won’t be possible to copy BaccS to USB drive, since database file is stored in another location).
  • Dashboard – Earnings chart got a line showing average income per month for all time.
  • Main dashboard and Dashboard for translator – all widgets are collapsible now, as in the dashboard for manager.
  • Contractor – added possibility to set default payment term.
  • Assignment – added a button to send e-mail message to contractor with possibility to attach files from an assignment or from base translation job.
  • Assignment – when registering a new invoice from a contractor, it is now possible to select payment term, which is automatically detected based on a contractor’s settings (30 days by default).

3.1.58 (09-feb-2018)

  • [NEW] New radial menu. Accessible by middle mouse button click anywhere inside program window. Allows to quickly navigate to the most important views. Having such quick navigation tool, you can now turn Auto-hide option for left navigation tree, to free-up screen space.
  • [NEW] New dashboard variant for managers. Accessible from a new radial menu or as a nested item under main dashboard in the navigation tree.
  • All invoice templates – few fixes to include user’s and customer’s VAT below address.

3.1.56 (08-feb-2018)

  • [NEW] Financial years. Now you can specify financial year start day and month in the program Settings. 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.
  • Main dashboard – Earnings chart – changed default color palette for the bar chart.
  • Job – Quick status change – if a job has undelivered translation assignments, the system will show a dialog with option to mark that assignments as delivered on a date of status change.
  • Job – when translation project is selected, its deadline, project name and PO number will be automatically transferred to a job, if corresponding fields are empty.
  • Outgoing payment – when ‘By-payment’ accounting system is used, the system will create single transaction on the ledger (amount plus included charges) instead of two separate transactions.
  • Invoice – added ‘Reload job data’ button above Invoice rows table.
  • Contractor editing form – added ‘Professional software’ and ‘Other software’ tables to allow to maintain lists of software used by a collaborator.
  • 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.
  • All lists – new button allows to create any type of object, not only currently viewed. For example, you can use the New button to create an invoice while viewing translation jobs.
  • Translation project – added ‘Include in CV’ checkbox.
  • Settings – CV data – added ‘Skills’ table.
  • Dashboard – Earnings chart – current month value is highlighted with red color.

  • [NEW] New dashboard variant, called ‘Dashboard (translator)’. It’s a new variant of the default dashboard, with 2 new widgets: Workload and Volumes chart. 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.

3.1.53 (30-jan-2018)

  • [NEW] Job list form and editing form – added ‘Send a message to PM’ button. It displays a list of files attached to a job for selection and then creates a new e-mail message to a PM with all selected files attached to that message.
  • 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.
  • CAT analysis import – when you import analysis file and select a tool, this tool will be automatically pre-selected next time you use Analysis file import function.
  • Fixes in Excel template for importing contractors.

3.1.51 (25-jan-2018)

  • Batch invoicing - improved design, added additional messages, removed 'Batch invoicing' button from the Tools tab on the ribbon. Instead, this button is added to the invoice list and to the main dashboard.

  • Dashboard - added a summary below 'Ready to invoice' table.

3.1.49 (19-jan-2018)

  • Translation assignment - Contractor pick-up - Added list of the recent assignments for a selected contractor. Now, during contractor's pick-up, you can see a list of recent jobs for each translator.
  • Contractor editing form - added list of assignments, so you can see all contractor's assignments while viewing the file.

  • [NEW] Assignment editing form - hover on the Contractor field to see a tool-tip with a list of default prices for this contractor.
  • Assignment editing form - language pair field (uneditable) is displayed near 'Translation job' field.
  • All lists and editing forms - caption of the 'Amount (base cur)' column and field automatically changes to include a name of the selected base currency instead of 'base cur.' text.
  • Added Clone function to a number of reference data tables (like default price, fuzzy type set, etc.).
  • Fixed 'Default invoice save folder' setting. It didn't work. Now, when you save a report (invoice, quote, etc.) to PDF, this folder will be pre-selected.
  • Add few animations throughout the program to make it looking more attractive.
  • Small fixes.

3.1.47 (12-jan-2018)

  • Small fixes.

3.1.46 (09-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.
  • Fully updated Russian translation.
  • Improved job progress calculation from Trados projects.

3.1.44 (05-jan-2018)

  • NEW FEATURE. Job list - 'Progress' column. It displays precise or estimate progress. If the job is linked with SDL Trados project, it will display a progress based on data from Trados!! 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.

  • Invoice list - fixed "Payment methods" column. It was hidden by default, but displayed wrong information when was shown.

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

3.1.37 (15-DEC-2017)

  • If you're connected to proz.com, please open settings, switch to proz.com tab, click disconnect, and then connect. Maybe this is not required, but recommended to do.
  • 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).

  • Fixes in all built-in invoice templates. Now, instead of 2 data sources, each invoice template contains one data source - Invoice. This source contains User field, which contains your data and settings. Previously, to access your data, it was necessary to create second data source.
  • 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)

  • New default report: Time analysis. Shows some interesting figures based on working time you've spend on each job. To make this report working, 'Edit time' field must be filled.
  • 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.
  • Few small invisible fixes.

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.

  • 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.

  • Blue Board window - double click on URL allows to open company page in your browser
  • A number of bug fixes linked with editing data in different forms.

In addition, you can fetch updates to view updates on the Blue Board (which customers were added, which got new feedback, etc.). Finally, there is a button to create a customer in BaccS on the base of Blue Board information (turn potential customer into the real one)
  • Updated 'Mail sender' feature:

  • German translation
  • Spanish translation - still few untranslated strings. We'll add them next time.
  • New approach in numbering system. Your action required!!!
    Previously, there were few settings to control invoice/job numbering (prefix, postfix), and it wasn't possible to select separators. Now all these settings are joined in one parameter: invoice number format. It has only three parameters: document number, date and customer code. Also, previously document format was calculated on the fly. Now it is saved in the database, so job/invoice editing forms has two numbers: numerical and formatted, and you are able to edit both. For example, it is possible to format 2 as 0002 or 002 or 0002_2017. To do this, it is necessary to set new Invoice number format and Job number format according your preferences.
    Please, go to Settings after update, select Application settings tab and correct mentioned parameters.

  • Mail sending window - possibility to add multiple attachments
