It's a happy day for designers in China! They will now be able to use Vectorworks software in their native language. And, this Chinese-language version will include the entire line of Vectorworks 2012 products: Vectorworks Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Fundamentals, and Renderworks.
“We're simply thrilled to see the Vectorworks 2012 software now available in Simplified Chinese,” says Cecil Fung, Managing Director of Mad Macs Technology Distributions, Ltd. “This release will open the door to 1.3 billion people in China and give them the opportunity to experience Vectorworks' world-class AEC, landscaping, and entertainment design tools in their own language. So whether our Chinese users are looking for Building Information Modeling (BIM), Site Information Modeling (SIM), integrated rendering, or collaboration tools, the Chinese-language version will deliver.”
Many internationally operating Vectorworks customers who do projects in China will also appreciate the availability of a Chinese version of the software, as it will make it easier to cooperate with local designers and other stakeholders. “We’ve had a presence in China for quite some time, and we’re excited to provide a local-language version of the software for our customers in China and also to ease the workflow for designers around the world who do business there,” said Stewart Rom, Chief Marketing Officer at Nemetschek Vectorworks.
The Vectorworks Chinese launch events are scheduled for April 16 and 18 in Beijing and Shanghai, respectively. Nemetschek Vectorworks CEO Sean Flaherty will be the keynote speaker, and CTO Biplab Sarkar will give a preview of Vectorworks Cloud Services and third-party products.
