    Arrow Translation

    I have a numerous amount of detailed CAD drawings, all with German text on them. I was wondering if there is a quick way to translate these to English. Searched on the net for software or add ons. I have found an add on called 'TRANS'. You follow the link, sends you to another web page, so on and so on, still no better off, and still unable to download anything.

    Can anyone tell me if this is possible and if so where to find a trial version to try out on a few dwg's.

    do you want it fast, or do you want it right? I'm not aware of any CAD add-on that claims to do translations in autoCAD....

    You could cut and paste the text into google translator, and see what results you get there. that would be fast, but far from reliably correct.

    If you want it 'right', you'll need to locate a speaker of german with fluent knowledge of the technical field you are working in. Any colleges in your area? I've drunk beer near Trinity college, but looks like that's a bit out of your local area

    I find that Bing translator is a little more accurate...at least for Spanish.

    Something to do with the translation of the Japanese 2013 release announcement- to do with the "cloud" .
