With TranslateCAD® you only need to invest 5 extra minutes processing your AutoCAD® DXF files and you're ready to translate in plain-text format using your favorite CAT tool. (You may use Trados, SDLX, Wordfast, DejaVu, or any other CAT software that supports plain text in Unicode format). 

You may translate AutoCAD® drawings' text even if you don't have AutoCAD® installed. (Although it's recommended that you do a double-check and re-formatting with AutoCAD® after the text has been processed with TranslateCAD®.)

TranslateCAD® supports Unicode to allow you translate virtually any possible language including Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. (Note: You and the customer need to have the corresponding Unicode True Type Font installed).

The unregistered version is yours to keep, and you may use it to count words within AutoCAD DXF Drawings (without size or word limit) and to translate the first 50 words of any AutoCAD® drawing regardless of its size.

Or... you may register and get your license to unlock the software and translate an unlimited number of words within any drawing. In order to purchase your license, please download the software (trial version) and the software will show a button for you to buy it.

It will more than pay for itself on your next AutoCAD® translation project.
