The Translators option allows you to translate or reference MicroStation® and AutoCAD® files for use with SmartSketch. MicroStation and AutoCAD fonts, linestyles, and fill styles are fully supported, so you can modify your drawings in SmartSketch and then save them as either MicroStation or AutoCAD formats. CAD translation provides equivalent objects to and from which elements or entities may be mapped during translation. Translator options let you customize how MicroStation or AutoCAD fonts, linestyles, widths, views, and units are imported, referenced, or saved as MicroStation or AutoCAD drawings. 

If your MicroStation or AutoCAD drawings are "hybrid" drawings containing both graphic and raster data, we recommend that you install the Image Integrator option for SmartSketch as well. Although hybrid MicroStation and AutoCAD drawings will import without Image Integrator, all of the raster data will be ignored in your new file.

You can install the Translators option using the Custom setup feature.
