At translate plus, we take a unique approach, as a software-independent language service provider with a strong in-house development team who create bespoke solutions for our clients. To date, we are the only language service provider who can offer a fully integrated solution for CAD (computer-aided design) files, including DWG, DXF and DGN formats, thanks to CAD plus, our powerful CAD localisation tool.
CAD drawings are highly technical and can be time-consuming and complex to translate without the right resources. They can involve annotations, attributes and text boxes across multiple drawings which all need to be translated to a high standard. The CAD plus app enables the localisation of these drawings while still incorporating translation memory technology, resulting in significant time and cost savings for our clients. With CAD plus, clients such as Ametek, Skanska, and FLSmidth can:
– save time, by batch importing and exporting thousands of files
– maintain data structure, by allowing translators who don’t have CAD software to localise content without any risk of breaking the design, data or layout
– filter and extract exactly the content which needs translation
– simplify formatting by setting options for fonts, layers and layout
CAD plus is regularly updated and now supports AutoCAD 2014, as well as previous versions including AutoCAD 2007 and earlier.
