Who’s up for Chinese?

Comments(6)Filed under: PCB design, OrCAD, Schematic, pspice, Capture CIS', PCB Capture

Recently, someone asked me "...why bother translating OrCAD products to Chinese?  Everyone speaks English anyway..."    In a great many cases, that's probably a true statement.  But if you're a Chinese engineer, what a pain it must be working with schematic and simulation tools and having to do the mental-math all day long while trying to get your job done.  I did agree, though, if you've been in the industry long enough, especially with an international company, doing the mental-math is probably not too much of a big deal.  But if you're an engineering student or just out of school, maybe it is a big deal.  Either way, wouldn't it be nice to have a choice?

Obviously, I think so.  Let us know what you think.

Now there is a choice.  As of Tuesday (April 20th), Cadence® OrCAD® Capture and PSpice® products are available in Chinese.  Working with Graser Technologies, our Cadence Channel Partner, and building on the previous Japanese translation work, the text in the user interface has been translated along with the various dialog boxes, buttons, and tabs.

Please share your thoughts...

My goodness, Chinese version of OrCAD. I worked in PCB industry at early 90's in China. I was very familiar with OrCAD!

My name is George, co-founder and CEO of a localization firm. I totally agree you need a Chinese version because most of the Chinese engineers in the PCB industry don't speak English at all!

I noticed there are some terms in the above flash been translated weired to me.  If you write to me, I can send my comments via email if you like. Thanks.
