Translation from Feet-Inches to Metric

Hello again, I am in charge of a project for international non profit construction and I like this program for quick and easy simplistic spatial design and its capability to export easy into .DWG formats for architectural purposes. One thing I would like to suggest however is a click-button to translate a Metric drawing into a Feet-Inches drawing because the drawings are written in Metric for overseas design and construction but they are approved and sent out for funding here in the States, but the problem is that most funding Americans aren't understanding of the Metric system and it would be helpful to send them drawings with Imperial measurements.
