GRAITEC Advance Steel 2011 available in Traditional Chinese
Bièvres, France, February 25th, 2011 - GRAITEC, a major worldwide developer for analysis and detailing software is pleased to announce that Advance Steel, its software dedicated to structural engineers and steel detailers, is now available in Traditional Chinese. This was made possible with the contribution of Autosoftware Technology, a GRAITEC Taiwanese partner.
Advance Steel® BIM system is specifically designed for structural engineers and steel detailers who require a comprehensive yet user friendly 3D structural steel detailing software that automates the production of drawings, BOMs and NC files. It drastically increases productivity and drawing quality, while reducing the risk of errors.
The 2011 version of Advance Steel has reached a new milestone in terms of functionality, productivity, quality and security. This version is available in 12 languages including the Traditional Chinese language, which is great news for all our eastern Advance Steel users.
As Taiwan and China are two of the fastest growing markets adopting the BIM (Building Information Modeling) technology, GRAITEC is pleased to provide Advance Steel in this strategic language.
In addition, Advance Steel 2011 offers even more flexibility, efficiency and control from the initial creation of the 3D model of steel structures to the automatic creation of all documents. The new “Project Explorer” allows the user to view the project as a whole or by dividing it up by floors or groups of elements for quick and easy editing. Advance Steel 2011 optimizes the entire phase of document creation (drawings, lists, etc.) with the new “Quick documents” tool.
Alexandre TARTAS, GRAITEC COO, comments: “We saw the growth of the Taiwanese and Chinese markets and started receiving more requests to translate our software to Chinese. With Advance Steel already available in 11 other languages, it was a must to also make it available to the fastest growing economy in the world.”
