Changing language version on C3D - potential file problems

173 Views, 2 Replies

I initially installed the British language version of C3D, having worked in England, i thought this would be easier for me. Anytime one can chose British english instead of American english. S'pose thats just me...

Having worked for a while, I have discovered that all tutorials are referring to Am-english commands and terminology. It is OK for me (I know the difference), but my Norwegian colleagues may not be aware of all these different terms and expressions. And I want to keep it simple as they start to learn/use the program.

Now the question:
Will the files created in British english edition be readable in the American english version?
If not, is there any "translator" at hand that will do the trick?
Or will previous files be rendered unreadable if I change language?
If the latter is yes, is it possible to have two language versions installed on every single PC?

I shall be grateful for all informed guidance/advice in this respect.

Kind regards
Erik

Erik,

 

The files created in UK English will work just fine
in the US English version. You do need to make sure that you are using the same
template and "Codes" files as your collegues so that you have a consistant
set of drawings as far as layers and styles. If you and your collegues use the
Norwegian "Country Kit" you should be fine.

Hi

 

If you don't already have it, you can download the
2009 Norway country kit (and all the other country kits for that
matter) that Peter mentions from
