ProZ Plus and BaccS May 9

I already have an answer from BaccS developer (answer = not in the immediate pipeline, no ETA), but since its inclusion in the ProZ Plus basket of features, BaccS is now also available as a Web-version.

http://www.ibaccs.com/Home/Pricing

In this light, I would like to ask whether it would make sense that ProZ Plus offered its members access to either the offline Windows-only Freelance edition, or the online Web-version.

Since ProZ Plus is offered to translators that may work on a Mac or a GNU/Linux computer, it would make sense to ensure the ProZ Plus benefits cater to as many members as possible.

The offered CAT tool (CafeTran Espresso) is an offline, but cross-platform program. Could ProZ Plus offer an option to use the online Web-version of BaccS too? That would make the ROI much more meaningful for Mac and GNU/Linux users.

Hi John,

Not sure if this is what you need, but if you click on the small funnel icon in the top right of the 'Work st.' column header you can select which statuses to display. If you have changed the status to invoiced then you can filter for that.

Cheers,

Olly


Thanks, that's helpful.

But what about SDL now offering BaccS as an SDL product? May 15

Yesterday I learned that SDL has added BaccS to its stall of products for translators. I've not been able to find any information on what that means for us existing BaccS users - how about updates/upgrades? Integration with SDL products is not important to me, as I rarely get to set up a project in Studio and use the analysis for a quote. Most often I either get a project package from a client, or they require me to work in a different CAT tool.

I've asked this also in the SDL community for BaccS, but maybe people here (hi, Eugene!) know more.

BR,

Matthijs

Hello, Jean,
Thank you for commenting. I posted previous reply before yours (but mine took longer to publish as I'm not PRO user, and it required moderation).
Things aren't so easy with web version, as currently it is not offered to freelancers. While desktop version doesn't have any hosting-related costs.

Yesterday I learned that SDL has added BaccS to its stall of products for translators. I've not been able to find any information on what that means for us existing BaccS users - how about updates/upgrades? Integration with SDL products is not important to me, as I rarely get to set up a project in Studio and use the analysis for a quote.

Hello, Matthijs,

We will answer you soon on community forums. Sorry for short delay about this. Nobody still got version 5. Thank you for asking! I suppose there will be some announce soon.

And in case of additional questions, welcome to our new community forums (see link in Matthijs' post)!

Thanks to everyone who supported during these years! It was exciting, and it will be even more exciting.

From the BaccS FAQ on the SDL website:

I am an existing BaccS user. Will I still be able to use it?

Existing BaccS customers will be offered a free upgrade to the next two versions of BaccS, starting with Version 5.

Customers will be offered free Support and Maintenance for as long as Version 5 remains the latest release.
