2 weeks ago i came accross that our marketing dept. evaluate 3d software to produce simple render of sales boxes containing products, … standalone or in simple scenes. Working in the it dept. i offer to install blender as an free alternative, give a short (i guess to short) introduction and provide the help/tutorials i used when i learn it.
Today i heard they will use the other software (~1000 EUR each license) cause blender its only english and there are no simple icons to use, for creating objects.
Really i dont know if there are translation of blender, i would install the english version everytime cause it is more easier to learn from help and tutorials, cause most are in english. And not knowing the english name of an function makes really hard to find help. Sure blender has an harder learning curve but it is not so hard, or iam wrong? They should put the money in teaching lessons instead, in my opinion.
Did you came along with same expierence if you try to make blender as alternative in your company?
