    Your search for converting CAD files from one language to the other stops right here. Great application and saves a lot of time and effort.

  • 为什么默认不可以增加Google Translation ?
    Sam Chen | July 07, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    实际使用发现GOOGLE Translation更准确,贴近工作实际。

    Jon Smith (Publisher) | July 18, 2017

    Thanks for the comment Sam. Unfortunately Google no longer offer a free version of their API so we use Microsoft Translate instead. This is often producing better results for us than Google! I sent you a direct email with further detail.

  • Amazing Software
    Rachel Hough | April 14, 2016

    I have been manually translating drawing for a while now when I came across this app. It work so well. It has saved me so much time. And the tech support is great too, so fast to respond. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

  • Says I've hit the monthly limit after only translating 2 drawings
    Rachel Hough | April 05, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've used this a couple of times to test drawing (very basic drawings with minimal text) and it went well then today I started to translate actual drawings and it's told me that I've hit the limit after the second one. The 2 drawings had maybe 50 words max. Am I really limited to only a couple of drawings a month?

    Jon Smith (Publisher) | April 18, 2016

    We do have a monthly limit imposed on us by Microsoft that is shared across all users. Resolved with Rachel via email (see comment above - thank you!).

  • monthly translation limit
    adrian samaniego | August 30, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    why is this happening?

    Jon Smith (Publisher) | August 31, 2015

    Hi. The Microsoft service we use limits us to 2 million characters a month - we rarely hit this limit, but this month someone has been hammering it! Email me ( and I can discuss the options.

  • Arabic to English
    marben mamac | August 10, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It does not workin arabic. font in use (xarb.shx)

    Jon Smith (Publisher) | August 10, 2015

    Hi. I know it works with Arabic TrueType fonts so it might be a limitation of that shx font. If you can email me the font and a sample drawing I would be happy to take a look. Email me at the support address -

  • The best translator for AutoCAD
    Michael Canova | July 23, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It does not translate text that is in an AutoCAD GROUP. I made a button containing the following command Macro text: ^C^C(repeat (length (setq gdict (dictsearch (namedobjdict) "ACAD_GROUP")))(if(eq(caar gdict) 3)(command ".-GROUP" "_E" (cdar gdict)))(setq gdict (cdr gdict))) (from an AUGI thread - Thank you!) to explode all GROUPS in a drawing. I’ve also found that many MTEXTs do not fully translate (the AutoCAD Text window says they are, but they don’t change in the dwg), so I’ve had to explode them to TEXT, then it works. Always remember to save a copy of the originals, since the integrity of the information will be degraded somewhat. Thank you!!!

    Jon Smith (Publisher) | July 24, 2015

    Thanks for the review. I have tried translating text in groups and it is working for me - could you send me an example that does not work and let me know the version of AutoCAD you are using. Also, could you email me any examples of MTEXT not working and hopefully we can fix those as well. Email me at the support address -

  • Great

    Simple, efficace, nickel. Merci pour ce plugin bien pratique.

  • The app gets 4 stars, the 5th is for great customer service
    Daniel Sanders | March 11, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I tried 3 different translator plug-ins for AutoCAD to translate a fairly large (30+ layouts) drawing package, and Coins is by far the best. The only things that get a bit strange are special characters, like " for inches, the %%C and %%D combinations, etc. Just be aware of that, and that m-leaders and text added to dimensions don't translate unless you explode them. As I only need to supply translated pdf's, these are non-issues for me. Even does all of the attributes in title blocks, revdates, etc. I am surprised they give it away.

    Jon Smith (Publisher) | March 12, 2014

    Thanks for the feedback. We will try and get in as many of these suggestions into the next release as we can.
