AutoCAD 2010 language packs are now available for download from the Autodesk Subscription Center. This is new, in the past you had to install a complete single language version an may have had to create multiple language deployment images. Now you create one deployment image with the language packs in it.
Currently there is French, and German language packs for the 32-bit and 64-bit AutoCAD 2010. More languages will be available shortly.The language packs are not a full install image.
If you need to provide AutoCAD to users in one or more languages, you can download language packs from the Autodesk Subscription Center to the installer that will allow you to deploy the product in the languages you need to support.
Language packs can only be included in an administrative image during the creation of the deployment. When creating the deployment image (standalone or network licensed) you select the MSI for the language pack downloaded from the Autodesk Subscription Center. In my case I downloaded the AutoCAD 2010 German Language Pack.
Creating the multi language AutoCAD Deployment Image:
When I was creating the deployment image I selected the “Add Language” option and then browsed to where I extracted the German language pack and selected the MSI.
Now when users install from this admin image they would then have the choice to install the English or German AutoCAD 2010.
Creating the multi language AutoCAD Standalone:
I can also do standalone installation from the DVD with another language. You can place the language pack on the local machine or a network location and then a user can point to the language pack and add the language to their installation.
You can only install within language families currently. This means that customers in the Americas wouldn’t be able to download a Japanese language pack and customers in Japan wouldn’t be able to download Traditional Chinese. Currently there is no EMEA European subscription customer support for language packs.
