- And Now…. Where have the Localisation Enhancements Gone?
With the release of 2010 there was a lot of fuss made about Localisation Enhancements from Autodesk.
What are Localisation Enhancements? I hear you cry…
Basically because Revit is a
produced and based product and the Americans speak “English Jim but not as we know it” they use construction terms that are different to those that we use in good old Blighty USA
So Localisation Enhancements really means country specific terms
The following USA terms that have been in the product pre 2010 were changed in the UK installation, but just to confuse the user the online Help, CHM and shortcut files still reflect the US terms.

If you would like to see the reinstatement of
terms within Revit Structure – Don’t forget that we are still waiting for stirrups to be renamed links in the RC detailing side. UK
Then send an email to Ralph Pullinger, using This Link that will automatically generate a subject title which will enable Ralph to collate the amount of people that are unhappy about the removal of
construction terminology from within Revit Structure. Please add any other concerns you have to the email. UK
Ralph has assured me that not only will he will read them, that once he has collected them all, that he will pass them onto the Autodesk development team in USA to support the request he has made to have this fixed.
If you don’t email Ralph then you are not supplying him with the
ammunition he needs to do his job which is helping us, the UK Users get from Autodesk and Revit what we need. UK
