XBRLizer+  The XBRL report editor

Reporting Estándar has developed the easiest- to- use XBRL report editor in the market which keeps the user away from the complexity of XBRL. But XBRLizer+ is something more than a XBRL information editor, it is a complete solution for users who demand more from and XBRL tool.

Basically, XBRLizer+ works as a spreadsheet where, clicking on a cell, provides automatically all the necessary information, that is, company’s name, reporting period, associated dimensions , measurement units or currency. All these data can be edited and changed later manually, or the tool will be prompt the user in the case the value is not automatically detected.

Main features of XBRLizer

Multilingual: Users can select their language preference. Text labels will be shown following that selection. Additionally, users can select multiple languages, and their preference order so, if a text label is not available in the mail language selected, the software automatically searches for an available label in the next language indicated in the list. XBRLizer+ is the only XBRL software in the market that offers such functionality.

Multiple content: If the XBRL report contains data for more than one form, users can select which form will contain which data.

Multiple ways of displaying information: Regular, Multidimensional, Form and iXBRL view:

  • In regular view all facts within the report are displayed without taking in consideration it’s dimensional aspects.
  • If a taxonomy contains XBRL dimensions, informs can be viewed as a one dimension or as a multidimensional table. In multidimensional view, users can rearrange dimensions in order to set the report according to their needs.
  • The form view is available for those reports whose taxonomy makes use of the TABLE 1.0 specification
  • If the XBRLreport comes in iXBRL format, the iXBRL view will render the information like a browser will do , adding additional XBRL information.
