COLUMBIA, MD, USA, Apr 21, 2016 - Global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. announces the release of the Chinese and Japanese versions of its Vectorworks 2016 software line. Part of a worldwide rollout, these latest two versions join additional language releases over the past few months in English, Dutch, French, German, Polish, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish and Portuguese. The Vectorworks line of award-winning software products include Vectorworks Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight and Fundamentals, as well as ESP Vision and Renderworks software.

A&A Co., Ltd., the distributor of Vectorworks software in Japan, released a Japanese-language version of the Vectorworks 2016 product line in January, complemented with launch events in five cities: Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Sendai and Sapporo. Vectorworks executives Sean Flaherty and Dr. Biplab Sarkar joined the events in Tokyo and Osaka to help spread the news of Vectorworks 2016 to the Japanese audience.

President of A&A Co., Ltd. Eiichi Kawase said, “With this new version, Vectorworks can adapt to new design methods, providing an effortless, interoperable and open environment. Once again, the release includes the implementation of many user-requested features.”

With more than 70 updates as a direct result of customer feedback, the Vectorworks 2016 release furthers Vectorworks’ mission to remain a customer-centric company, a mindset that will continue to be at the heart of inspirations for future releases.
