Translate description text
Converts description or switch position component text from one language to another. When AutoCAD Electrical finishes it displays a report listing what was successfully translated and what was not. You can use this report to surf to the problem areas (where a phrase could not be translated) and make manual edits one by one.
By default, the conversion looks for exact matches on the description labels you select with partial match as an option.
Tip: You can add more phrases to the translation table using the Edit Language Database File tool (Project tab Other Tools panel Edit Language Database) and rerun the language swap to obtain more satisfactory results.
