Revit Template from German to English

Dear Community,

I’m struggling in translating all the Family names, Element names, and so on, from the German Autodesk template to the English one.

Anyone of you has done this before? Any tips?

Thanks for your help.

Some things are easy to rename, others not. Parameters will always be difficult and project parameters cannot be renamed if they are shared. Family parameters need to be processed separately.

Most other things can be renamed using various custom packages or Python/API.

To translate you will need to use a Python library like googletrans probably. A thread discusses that in more depth here:

Dynamo as it comes doesn’t have simple inbuilt tools for this I think. Fairly advanced workflows.
