How to Translate an AutoCAD drawing with Trados or other CAT tool?

I’m a freelance translator and would like to use Trados or Wordfast to translate an AutoCAD drawing with a lot of text. Some of the text is repeated so it would be great to use a Translation Memory (TM) to do that. Thanks!

    That’s a thoughie.

    I’ve only heard of one tool to convert CAD text to regular text. It was made by a fellow translator and it works great -well, at least the 50 words the unregistered version allows me to- anyway the license is quite unexpensive, $29 bucks and it lets you convert to your heart’s desire.

    Here’s a link to the download page.
