Does anyone know of a way to translate DWG files without extracting in AutoCad?
I am looking for a quick, easy and VERY reliable solution.

Best Regards

There is a free program to view them at

Perhaps you can edit text with it.

There are other freebie view programs, and you may be able to use other graphics programs too.

Try googling with the phrase "DWG files". Gives you plenty of food for thought.
