Q - question

Revit LT 2017 in more, "secret" languages.

A - answer The entry-level BIM application Autodesk Revit LT was always available in a limited number of language localizations. The new version Revit LT 2017 changes the game.

The new Revit LT 2017 is distributed as a multilanguage version supporting English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish and Spanish. Other languages like Chinese, Portuguese, Czech or Russian are not officially supported and the product installer does not offer them.

But the required localization files are included in the installation and so you can launch Revit LT 2017 in additional, "secret" languages - e.g. in Chinese or Russian:

  1. On your Desktop or in the Start menu, right-click on the Revit LT 2017 icon and choose Properties
  2. In the Shortcut tab, change the command in the Target field -> change the three-letter language code to e.g. CSY (or RUS, PTB, CHS, CHT)

    "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit LT 2017\Revit.exe" /language CSY

  3. Click the OK button

Now the application startup icon will launch the localized version of Revit LT.
