NorthPort Translator


Say ‘Hello’ to the only user controlled interactive import utility for Abila  MIP Fund Accounting™! We’ve listened to users and recognized the need for an intuitive application to import data into Abila MIP Fund Accounting. While this functionality has been available in some form for 30 years; it hasn’t been easy to use without an IT background. Now the days of needing help are over!


NorthPort Translator is the only end user integration tool that allows organizations to import any standard Excel or CSV file with columnar data into Abila MIP Fund Accounting.

The definition file is always the question! What is a definition file? How do I update the definition file? What do those commas mean? What if I miss one? As a member of the Abila™ community for over a decade, we have also struggled at times. Miss a comma and the import fails. Now the import process can be done in minutes, saving you time and stress.

Customers expect integration in 2014, and we are delivering on that expectation. Specialized systems to manage data tracking are what solution providers are bringing to market. Organizations expect these systems to work seamlessly together without paying thousands of dollars every time there are changes. In the past there was no other option, now you have NorthPort Translator. Import your data, and get on with your organizations’ mission.


NorthPort Translator allows you to control the import process from start to finish. If you can add a new account to the Chart of Accounts in Abila MIP Fund Accounting, you can use NorthPort Translator. The import process takes you through a wizard similar to the Chart of Accounts Setup Wizard. Answer a few simple questions about your file, and at the end the file will be validated and ready for import into Abila MIP Fund Accounting. This tool will pay for itself with the first import! be able to have a tool that is very user friendly, that will supplement and be layers of additional resources and information on top of the hands on training we receive – this is a definitely a brilliant use of technology and I’m very excited to have access to it."
