Support for Chinese Language

5 May 2018
I am very pleased to announce that Condes is now available with Chinese language support.  When Condes opens on a computer with a Chinese version of Windows, the menus and other program texts appear in Chinese.

This makes Condes more user-friendly for the growing orienteering community in China.  

The translation was kindly provided by Liangxin Lee from LearnJoy in Beijing.


You can print your courses and maps directly on a color printer.  Alternatively, you can export the courses and maps to a variety of graphical formats for professional offset printing.

Condes supports many different formats of orienteering, including relays, and random order controls, and has features specific to different orienteering disciplines: Foot-O, Ski-O, MTB-O, and Trail-O.

Condes supports the "administrative" procedures involved in course planning, and can print out a range of different reports of the data.

A licence for Condes is valid for an entire orienteering club, and there is no limit to how many club members can use the program.  You can purchase your club licence for Condes from the ordering page.

Print multiple maps on the same page...

This is just one of many possiblities with Condes

Condes functionality is based on ideas and input from a lot of Condes users.  Condes supports Foot-O, Ski-O, Mountain-Bike-O and Trail-O, as well as Score-O, relays, etc.

Export to PDF

In addition to printing the maps with courses on a printer, you can export to a variety of graphical formats.  An important one of these exports is the export to PDF.  When you export to PDF, all the courses will be included in one file, with one page per course.  PDF is the ideal format both when you use professional printing and desktop printing.
