Rosetta SIE-XBRL/GL Viewer
Read and analyse your bookkeeping, from disk, email files and over
Rosetta presents financial reports from standard SIE, XBRL/GL and
Rosetta accounting files!
SIE (wiki) file exports
are possible in all accounting and business administrative system marketed in
Sweden, for from the smallest to the hugest enterprises. And so a large share
globally, where SIE is not marketed but available on customer requests.
Rosetta make you able to read
bookkeeping on a mobile phone, a computer and even better on a tablet. The reports can be displayed,
printed, saved as PDF (print), text files and for use in spread sheet
programs for deeper analysis and presentation.
Double-click (Windows)/long-click (Android/iPhone/iPad) on accounts,
entries or objects for specific analyse
We are at present supporting Rosetta program and store facilities in
12 languages: English, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Icelandic, Finnish,
German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian. More languages will
be supported in the future.
Report languages amount and date formats are made from the computer

The Rosetta software and project
Rosetta is two things, software and a project.
It is a
generic series of software. The first is the Viewer of the common open

same thing and from the product and project name relates.
being a very domestic type of product line accounting and business
administration is getting more generalised. The standard format develops and
the governments especially within the European union standardise measures and
procedures in order to establish and develop the common market. The VAT
directive and the digital signature directive/eIdas
must be seen as huge paradigms in this development. Huge skilled efforts are
made and it results in other countries are benefitted by using the same
format and procedures. There are no doubts how things will be managed, only
when it will be implemented.
We see a
transformation from cash to electronic payments and with it the coming of
digital receipts and invoices in the daily trade. We believe in the digital
receipts supplied via payments into the internet bank. Where the user can
click on a transaction line and get the receipt or an invoice of a purchase.
The next generation of digital invoice formats will be focused on the retail
commerce customer needs rather than large entities procurements. We already
see today efforts in digital receipts in large retail chains digital customer
services. But most of all we are waiting for the banks, the credit card debit
POS protocols and the implementation of the EU digital signature directive/eIdas. Something that so far has been very slow, Windows
3.1 supported PKI 1993, the directive is from 1999 and we still cant sign
our emails, documents and invoices (VAT directive article 233) and anyone can
read the signature. But now there is a fast growing firm pressure from the
market. And of course standardised bank account statements with digital
receipt/invoice references will be downloadable for accounting, in a not too
make a completely different accounting and business administration market. But
also a market of possible pure accounting transparency and the opportunity to
analyse business to the last nut and bolt.

a quite clear path of the future.
believe in doing it right from the beginning with a good firm accounting and

seen software development in this field in the past as an improvised in an
improvised environment of legislation and business. In the past the
accounting and business administration software industry have been created and
continued as a continuous adaptation to this situation. This leading to the
core components of the accounting and business administrative systems do not

basic statements are important in mind:
We are working with accounting documentation with reports and not
Bank account statements, governmental (tax) reports, contracts and
wage statements are self-billed invoices and all types of invoices are the
accounting vouchers. The accounting is a collection (journal) of accounting
vouchers/invoices and nothing else. Invoices should be possibly referred (with
hyperlinks) to in accounting voucher entries, accounting objects, accounts
and the entity.
The entire accounting has one and only currency and all transactions
and reports are stated in that currency. Any other currency assets or debts
like loans or bank accounts, specified in other currencies than the
accounting are quantity accounting registrations, and must be validated
according to the GAAP and tax regulations. We support quantity addendum
accounting where each account has one possible measure and its total will be
reported. SIE and XBRL/GL support quantity accounting.
The accounting entries representing the vouchers can have object tags
to represent sub/project reporting for like cost centres and cost objects.
This also allows invoices in payables and receivables can each be accounted
for as objects for full transparency. The same for employees and transparent
salary expressed in detailed accounting terms for transparency. SIE and
XBRL/GL support object accounting.
An accounting year could be of any length (from an accounting
theoretical view, but normally not from a legal view) and one accounting file
can include indefinite number of complete accounting years. The forwarding
balances on balance accounts should have the same amounts as the opening balances
of the account in the following year. Else the accounting is corrupt. The
forward and opening balances should be documented in the accounting as it,
and not as an accounting voucher with account entries. Each quantity amounts
should be reported per account and opening and forwarding balances should be
expressed for objects. Periodic monthly reports are made in the benefit of
the reader and should be reported and other periodic data made by month
Rosetta file format. Read the Alphabet
Rosetta accounting file format and method and to it are import and export
sets of functions for SIE and XBRL/GL. It all refers to and is compatible to
the SIE 4 specifications and
methods. To make an implementation of XBRL/GL to work, a taxonomy must be
made, the Alphabet Rosetta
accounting XBRL/GL Taxonomy.(that is based on
the SIE accounting methods).
Rosetta project have been designed in a few layers of the application
The XSD describing the work file, the information set Rosetta.xsd
The core File I/O:
Is created to
Create a work program memory
Destroy a work program memory
Copy the work program memory into another set of work program memory
IsData to check if there are any data in the work
Read the work files into the work program memory.
Write the work program memory into the work files
The code is written by a program of us, designed to transform the XSD
to these functions
To avoid bugs
To create unanimity
It all is written to a linked list system of C pointers to data
Accounts and objects have special treatment to support reactive
structure pointer programming to allow low level updates being reactive all
over the application.
A set of general utility functions in support is made
A set of application processing functions are made
It all is collected in a C-file library with console demo program that
translates files between the formats, a Visual Studio project, and is

Help Rosetta translation of texts?
very happy for any contribution in text translation. The Rosetta project is
under very lean budget and professional text translations are not funded.
Interested in helping expanding for more languages please look into the
enumerations in Rosetta.xsd and RosettaHelpTexts.xsd. Mail us your
expanded translation and we look into it.
We have made the translations of
the present languages by our personal non-professional translator status. Any
suggestions in improving the texts, please mail us. Rosetta@alphabet.se
A first step developing modern accounting a
very long process, a new focus
AB has built up a commercial standard model for software development for any computer
system. A concept to create a standard base for supportive software product
market for various purposes. Catching up and developing as SIE succeeded
successfully in the 1990s in Sweden. A first step
developing modern accounting browsing/generate reports from SIE-files and
analyse instruments. The concept works in all countries and languages. Files/Reports can be made in
multiple language formats for an international audience. Making it possible
to read accounting reports over language borders.
It is a free way of
exploiting the work of a large number of committee work such as XBRL, UN / CEFACT, SIE, the EU
VAT directive and transforming the experience into commercial software
that fulfils market requirements. Previously, the work has been so difficult
for the market to utilize above all by formal reasons, as we resolve here.
The future fully digital accounting end economy administration.
The concept is designed
to meet the new market conditions for rapid growth of smartphones and tablets,
digital payment, web-shop and internet banking. Key goals are the supply of
traditional markets with modern accounting and invoicing software. The
globalisation of accounting trade administration and tax reports is coming.
