One of the ways AutoCAD WS can reach as many people as possible is to talk in their language. A large proportion of our users come from countries where English is not the official language.

So in order to make life simpler for our users we have developed a version of the AutoCAD WS Plugin for AutoCAD 2010, AutoCAD 2011 and many of the AutoCAD vertical products in a wide variety of new languages.

You can download the plugin now in the following languages:

  • Deutsch
  • Français
  • Italiano
  • Español
  • 日本語
  • 简体中文
  • Português
  • 繁体中文
  • 한국어
  • Magyar
  • Русский
  • Český
  • Polski

We have also translated the product overview and installation instruction into each language.

Let us know in the comments section which is your preferred language and what we can be doing to make AutoCAD WS even more accessible and useful to you.

    Good news! Light utilities like that should be systematicaly localised.

    I am interested in speaking to anyone with regards to security of where the AutoCAD data centre is located in the world. As a Canadian Government, we need to pay attention to the US Patriot Act with respect to where we have data hosted. Perhaps it isn’t a concern in the case of these AutoCAD files but we need to have had that discussion.

    I have copied a couple files to the site and opened them on the iPad. I am not an AutoCAD user, but I see the potential value in the product getting documents to the people in the field in a manner that they can easily work with. Conceptually this works but if I have 15 users in the field that need to have access to the same files, how is that handled? It looks to me like a one to one relationship with the files and the account. Perhaps I am not seeing what I need to see. I have noticed that when I logon at my computer, it logs off the iPad. That then tells me that I can’t have multiple people working off common documents.

    Example of potential use: We have AutoCAD drawings for each building that the City manages. These files are stored centrally, and currently they are accessed by field workers at City computers where they can find one at a facility. Not very optimized but it does work. If there are 15 of these field workers, we would have to copy the appropriate drawings to each separate user so they would be able to access them in the field…. I see you can share the document with someone else but I don’t see how that would resolve the scenario I am describing…

    I think the app is extremely useful in my Industry which is Civil. I got a question is there
    any way to get coordinates from uploaded stuff. Nigel

    Got a next question can we list properties of Object’s like we would use the LIST command in some of the Autodesk products. Nigel

    Wicked cool app! I’m only a student at the moment, but i’m sure that this will prove to be an excellent source for collaboration :) Thanks!!
