    Posted: 02.Nov.2020 at 14:58
I have just downloaded a trial version of trans
  • I am using AutoCAD 2021. 
  • The app seems to have loaded successfully. 
  • I choose to translate English to Spanish. 
  • I am using gTrans and I am selecting just a sample of autoCAD text to test the app. 
  • I select the text, hit return, and then get the following error: bad argument type: string nil?
 How can I resolve?  I would like to buy.

Any help welcome...  Thank you.

please note that both Google and Microsoft have limited access to their translation APIs a couple of years ago. Currently, you can only use the manual (export/import) and database-driven translation options in TRANS. Please try the TR_WRITE and TR_READ commands or DTRANS - see:
