Revit 2012 - Country Specific Terms

It has been brought to my attention that in the 2012 release of Revit, Autodesk, in their wisdom, decided to remove the much hyped localisation enhancements. (Country specific terms)

See the example below. (From the Revit Structure Learning Curve)

USA Term ......................UK Term

Girder..............................Primary
Joist ................................Secondary
Horizontal Brace ............Plan Brace
Purlin ..........................Tertiary (I am actually quite happy with Purlin)
Coping ........................ ....Notching
Coping Distance ............Notching Distance
Remove Coping .............Remove Notching
Coped ......................... ....Notched

It seems there is a "revolt" against Autodesk, and I have been asked to post this to generate support, and exercise UK Revit User Power on the Revit Development Team in the USA.

Ralph Pullinger's email has cropped up amongst all of this, I can only assume he is in support of the UK Specific terms, and is looking out for our feedback. (Don't quote me on that)

Use
This Link to email Ralph.

The link generates a subject matter that Ralph can harvest and then if he gets enough he can submit the emails as proof that UK users are not happy.
