Carlson 2012 Office Design Software Now Available in Spanish

ALMERE, Netherlands – Carlson’s 2012 edition of its CAD-based office software modules – Survey, Civil, Hydrology, GIS, Point Cloud, Construction, Takeoff, Geology, Surface/Underground Mining, and Natural Regrade – are now available in Spanish. Full translation of the code was completed by Carlson personnel together with Aretei Asistencia S.L.L., a top Carlson Software dealer in Spain.

“We are very excited to be able to present Carlson’s wide range of office design software in the Spanish language,” says Jesus Latova of Carlson EMEA , who is based in Madrid, Spain and helped to lead the effort. “The demand for having access to Carlson’s technically advanced, yet easy-to-use software for land development and mining in the Spanish-speaking world has been very strong.”

All of the recent improvements for 2012, including increased 3D visualization and 3D coding, and the ability to produce customized, more professional reports, have been retained in the translation. The software offers choice of CAD platform of AutoCAD, version 2000 through 2012, and IntelliCAD 6.6, a .dwg file compatible CAD platform, comes built-in and ready to use for no extra cost. A beta version of IntelliCAD 7.1 is also included as a preview of the upcoming major new release.
