What is a Localisation Enhancement? I hear you cry……
Basically because Revit is a USA 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
So Localisation Enhancements really means country specific terms.
The following USA terms that have been in the product pre 2010 have been changed in the UK installation, but just to confuse the user the online Help,CHM and shortcut files still reflect the US terms.
Now come on Autodesk if you could manage to tweak these terms when resigning the User Interface (UI) why oh why could you not run a "find and replace" in a word processor on the Help and Tutorial CHM?
It seems that the product development team always spoil the ship for a hapeth of tar….
Excitech continues to make it easy for you to learn about the latest CAD software from Autodesk through their "Presentations On Demand".
This year Excitech has produced a range of CPD approved, short video presentations each typically lasting no longer than 8 minutes. These videos highlight some of the key new features in the mainstream Autodesk applications and the benefits these can bring both to the end-user and design team.
These presentations by Excitech's consultants can be viewed at a time and place convenient to you from the Excitech web site and will be made available via DVD shortly to Excitech's Subscription Customers.
Over the course of the year, Excitech will be releasing more videos to complement the Autodesk 2010 product range so be sure to check these pages regularly throughout the year.
What is a displaced worker? . That’s American, Canadian or a politically correct term for the unemployed Designer, Architect or Engineer.
Autodesk have recognised that these are difficult times for Designers, Engineers and Architects. So they have now extended their Autodesk Assist Program from Students (see posting in December 2008) to the unemployed to enable them to “Extend their skills and improve their employability”.
This Autodesk Assist Program is being launched in North America, and Autodesk hopes to roll the program out in other countries over the next few months.
You can listen to Steve Blum (Senior Vice President America's Sales for Autodesk) discuss the program in a video on the Autodesk YouTube channel.
So when will the Autodesk Assist Program be available in the UK?
I have no idea! the Autodesk YouTube Channel video says 4-6 months.
I have asked questions and when I get answers I will let you know.
