_CAT and MT




Autodesk® estimates that more than 2 billion Autocad® drawings are in circulation. Most of these drawings will have to be translated into different languages if they are to reach all prospective customers.
With this in mind, we have developed an innovative system that automatically extracts text from these drawings and localises it into every language and alphabet.

By exporting and importing text and data with sophisticated software, our translators do not have to learn how to use complicated CAD programs - they can concentrate on translating, aided by CAT tools. The end result is a faster turnaround and more consistent terminology.
When the software imports the translated text back into the CAD drawings, the original formatting is undisturbed. Fonts, attributes and other editorial decisions in the original drawing are protected. As a result, we don't have to retype the text - and you can meet your deadline. Rest assured - with Soget, your translated drawings will be a mirror image of the originals.

We can do this with all DTP files, including QuarkXPress® and Adobe FrameMaker®.

As an added bonus, we can calculate the number of words inside the drawings. We will do this for you free of charge when we calculate your estimate.
