BarTender 2021 ’s .NET SDK now supports new Librarian and Print Portal REST APIs, providing powerful new workflow and web printing functionality.

Create commercial-quality designs

  • There’s a new interface for color selection in BarTender Designer. The Color Picker makes it easy to choose, identify and reuse a full spectrum of print and web colors throughout your BarTender documents. There’s support for PANTONE® colors, hex values and even data-sourced colors that populate your label dynamically.
  • BarTender’s Data Builder application now includes a Phrase Library, so you can build your own multi-lingual library of standard text phrases, and add and track the accompanying translations. This new Phrase Library is then accessed in Designer to populate your label designs.
  • Included is an Auto Translate feature which will translate a phrase that can be used as a starting point for a human translator to verify. You can also import and export the phrase library to CSV or TMX format files for even more accurate translations. (TMX files are typically used by translation services for professional translation.)

[The Phrase Library and Auto Translate features are available in BarTender 2021 as an early preview, to solicit customer feedback.]
