Archicad menus speak in tongues

Ignacio
Expert

Opening a file in AC25 SPA and bringing in a Work Enviroment created in AC25 INT, gets you this. 

(Colors are mine, just trying to find patterns.)
Is that a bug or a feature?

Archicad language versions do not translate anything - they are just written for a specific language.

In you case the SPA version will have all menus and commands in Spanish.

You are then bringing in a Work Environment from INT where all of the menus will be in English.

So the folder structure of that WE will be in English, but the actual commands which are coded in the Archicad program, will be the Spanish version.

 

You will have to manually translate each folder into Spanish if you want to use it.

Or I would assume the Spanish version has the same WE already translated?

Maybe not, as each language version has its own little customisations.

But I would think the default WEs would all be the same - just in different languages.
