As long as the plan has text you can copy it into one of the translation programs on your computer. May come out mangled to a degree, but still understandable.

I have a Mac and use widgets that convert from metric to US for both length and weight as well as a translation program. Might check into what your computer has available.

Another option if the plan is not full size but shows the location is to measure from the plan and just multiply by the factor needed to build full size. If building from a magazine article, for example, where the wing might be shown only 8" long whereas the actual wing is 54", multiply each plan measurement by 54/8 = 6.75.

Good luck.

Silence is often misunderstood, but it is never misquoted.
