  • Not all features will be translated in Agile Designer with this option.
  • In order to have a completely translated version of Agile Designer, you will need to request the download from the CA Support team. Please open a support case on or call 1-800-225-5224.
  • The completely translated Japanese and French versions of Agile Designer will always be a release version behind the latest GA Agile Designer release.
    • For example, the translated versions are available for ARD 1.9.5, but not ARD 2.0.
