Projects / TransProCalc


TransProCalc is a translation project management tool. It assists with initial project estimates, management of multidocument, multilanguage, multiprovider project data, and crunches up the numbers at the end of a project in a nice tidy report for the bookkeeper.

    Release Notes: TransProCalc can now open and save projects (a very useful, major enhancement). There were also some changes to the GUI and major and minor bugfixes.

      Release Notes: Printing was enabled via LPR. A calculator was embedded in the main window. ProjectEst and ProjectOut have been consolidated in ProjectFin. Close buttons on all dialogs close those dialogs, and only Quit on main window exits the program. The About button was removed from all but the main window. Text previously in the main window has been moved to the About.

          TransProCalc seeks Tcl-ers
          There are a number of new features this project needs, some of which I have tentatively begun to implement at home, experimentally, but, I would greatly appreciate assistance from experienced FOSS tcl-ers willing to volunteer a little time to assist.

          Such features include:

          a) to have an integrated calendar (tkremind?) for scheduling of tasks and for reminders of due dates, due invoices (both payable and receivable), etc. (I would require serious assistance with such a feature, considering my current level of skill).

          b) more user configurability of parameters such as the no. of documents, providers, charges, etc. for a project. (these are all hardwired, now, and if the user needs fewer than the fields provided, must enter 0 in the open fields or get math errors, and if they want more fields than are present, well...SOL...I've figured out how to configure the gui to allow the user to configure these numbers, but need to completely rewrite all the math routines to function with the new variables, and that will be very time consuming...)

          c) connection to a provider db and a client db so that client and provider information can be saved and re-imported easily.

          (I think I can work something like that in...although, not exactly a db, I can have it save client or provider info the same way it now saves project info, save all relevant somebody.tpclient or somedude.provider files in a .tpcalc dir in /home or something...I could do that...again, very time consuming...)

          d) perhaps better cross-platformability (like adding winders printing routines for the reports, and wrapping it up in a tclkit or starkit to be downloadable as one executable binary, instead of a handful of modules installed with a shell script, as it currently is), although, I often question how much I really care about usability on Winders.

          Mostly I don't care...

          e) maybe some autocompletion feature, to where, if one starts to type in a provider or client name, the app can complete the field (or offer options starting with the same letter, etc. sort of thingy...I haven't the slightest idea how to write that in).

          f) invoice generation (it prints report now, making an invoice generator would be trivial...but time consuming, again...)

          Printing of reports enabled
          Printing of reports enabled, via lpr.

          This is a linux tool, but, I believe Mac users will be able to print, too (maybe need fink, I don't know),

          and Windows users would only be able to take advantage of this function with cygwyn.

          4 TOOLS to help manage projects!!
          TransProCalc now has 4 distinct, but integrated tools:

          ProjectDocs to manage document information for mutlidoc/multilanguage projects.

          ProjectAssign to manage assignments for multidoc/multiprovider projects.

          ProjectEstimate for estimating project financial data upon initiation.


          ProjectOut to manage financial data for bookkeeping/invoicing upon completion of the project.

          It's a powerful translation project management tool, now!
