Translate CAD Software

Trados Power with AutoCAD Drawings

Is it possible to translate AutoCAD drawings with Trados or any other Translation Memory or Computer Assisted Translation Tool?. Well... not until TranslateCAD was invented.

Now with TranslateCAD you are able to translate literally in Plain-Text format using any CAT software (including Trados and SDL studio).

You will save a lot of time, not only because you skip using the awkward DTEXT or MTEDIT command, but because you will be able to use all your existing Translation Memories, Glossaries, Dictionaries, Context search, and other useful tools that your CAT software offers.

TranslateCAD is a shareware tool designed for professional translators that allows you to extract the translatable text from DXF AutoCAD drawings, creating a small plain-text Unicode-formatted file that you can translate easily taking advantage of your favorite CAT tool (SDL Trados studio 2007/2009/2011/2014, SDLX, Wordfast, Deja Vu, MetaTexis, CafeTran, Across, MemoQ, MultiTrans, OmegaT, Similis, Swordfish, Transit, Heartsome, Lingotek).
