Nobody is perfect – the translations

We did put a lot of effort into trying to offer the functions of AccidentSketch.com to as many people all over the world as possible.  Sometimes there are very specific words and terms.  It was the matter of human interpreters and no auto translation program to do so.  Nevertheless you may never exclude small mistakes, bugs or even totally wrong terms.  So in case you are finding any kind of impreciseness in your mother tongue of the language version or having some sort of trouble, please let us know about it.  We would be very thankful about every advice and suggestion of improvement. Please leave your response in the comment function in this blog. Thank you very much for your help.

Traffic signs are not always the same

traffic-signsThe current version of AccidentSketch.com has a batch of common default traffic signs. Depending on the language version you will discover slightly differences of the traffic signs of your country to the ones that are available in the program. Some even may differ a lot. Coming up with the next update of AccidentSketch.com we want to localize the traffic signs,  so that you will only see the ones that you actually know of your country. Having said this we are looking forward to hear from you,  in case the traffic signs do differ,  by leaving a response with the comment function in this blog describing to what extent the traffic signs vary. A link showing an example of the right country-specific traffic sign would be very helpful. Thank you very much.

Grid go away!

By going on AccidentSketch.com a grid appears in the background on the drawing area by default. This grid’s only function is due to orientation and estimation purposes in order simplify adding a traffic element. If you have finished your sketch and you are comfortable with it, you should make the grid disappear by clicking the button “Show grid”  so that the check mark goes away. Now by creating the PDF there is no disturbing grid in your sketch.drid off

How do I save my drawing?

You might have not noticed yet, but actually every sketch that is created by you is saved automatically. This is why there is no special button to particularly save your sketch. If you have started or already finished your accident depiction all elements of your sketch will be saved after closing your browser. More …

How do I send my accident depiction via e-mail?

The e-mailing function seems to have a lack of transparency which we did not expect. Often we are asked why there is no function for sending a sketch via e-mail. Well, of course you can send your depiction to anyone in an e-mail. To do so, click on the button “Print depiction”. Now a PDF is created with your sketch of the accident. In this PDF you will find a button “Send/e-mail your sketch” on the top right corner. Click on this button and your depiction can be sent as an e-mail to anyone you want it to go to. In some certain languages there is no button (yet). Then use the implemented function of the Adobe Reader for sending the PDF – this leads to the same result. More …
