The first is specific to the method of translation. The second, Common Import Options, contains options import methods share. An example of the Common Import Options pane appears below (Unigraphics import).
Scan File Only
This option is available for the following translators: SolidWorks, Inventor, CATIA V4, CATIA V5, Pro/E, Unigraphics, STEP, Parasolid, IGES.*Construction_ Select to scan the file for basic information instead of having to wait until the translation completes to get these details.
Transform Geometry to Active Construction Plane
When this option is enabled (checked), the imported geometry will be transformed to the current active Construction Plane. This option is enabled by default.
Repair Problem Entities
It is strongly recommended that you select this option. It corrects problems in the file being translated. Some of the conditions that it addresses are as follows:
When less precise entities from other systems are translated into the high precision KeyCreator modeling environment, typically the translated entities show gap errors. This option also corrects the difference in precision between the entities in the file being translated and KeyCreator by tolerizing the translated entities.
Local Coordinate System Translation Options
These options handle the translation of local coordinate systems.
Polygon Translation Options
This option is available for the following translators: STEP, Parasolid, SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, CATIA V4, CATIA V5, Pro/Engineer, Unigraphics. Controls how triangular entities (three planar lines forming a closed loop) are translated into KeyCreator

The options below are available for all translators except Catia v4.
