With the funding environment for nonprofits in Serbia becoming increasingly more fragmented and the choice of technology tools to aid fundraising and advocacy becoming more diverse, Catalyst Balkans saw an opportunity to fill an open niche for a localized CRM targeted to the nonprofit sector in the Western Balkans. With Catalyst Balkans already having used CiviCRM for several years for its own communication and contact management needs, the localization of CiviCRM was a natural choice.

With virtually zero strings translated into Serbian on Transifex and a very limited budget, Catalyst used a combination of existing staff resources and volunteers to plug away at the translation effort over a period of months. The final 1500 strings were done with the help of a translation professional who also went through and polished the entire translation file.

Filed under Backdrop, v4.7, CiviCRM

If you've been holding back from using Backdrop because your site requires the popular and powerful CiviCRM, hold back no longer. You can now easily install CiviCRM on Backdrop, or migrate it from your Drupal 7/CiviCRM setup.

CiviCRM and Backdrop CMS, two projects who focus on helping non-profits, fit together quite nicely. You can now easily install CiviCRM on Backdrop and benefit from the robust Drupal-like architecture with an extra helping of the user-friendliness added by Backdrop.

At our agency, Freeform Solutions, we are quite interested in the progress of Backdrop CMS. Non-profits want the power of Drupal but the user friendliness of WordPress. It has been a really hard sell to get them to upgrade from Drupal 6 to 7. For many their entire budget could go into the upgrade and they had little left for anything they really wanted. With Backdrop CMS, it was a relief to hear that backwards...

I'm please to announce the release of a new Smart Debit extension for CiviCRM 4.7.

The new extension is based on the vedaconsulting (https://vedaconsulting.co.uk) extensions for previous releases of CiviCRM but is rewritten and includes a number of new features and enhancements.  Development and Testing has been funded by Circle Interactive (https://circle-interactive.co.uk) and implemented by MJW Consulting (https://www.mjwconsult.co.uk).

The new extension includes the following features and enhancements:

  • Easy to use settings page with context help.
  • Automated daily synchronisation with smartdebit for all...
