Wiring up a welder

Hi Guys, I have a question someone here may be able to answer. I'm wiring a new shop with a 3phase convertor that is a 220v unit and I intend to use a Linde 3ph welder that I bought at an auction on this convertor. the welder says on the id plate 208/460v then down by the power cord a sticker says 460v. now the question is do I have to swap some wiring in the welder to use the 208v or does it naturally accept either voltage? Any help would be appreciated. If I left anything out you need to know just let me know and I'll post the info. Thanks

Yes .... Open the welder and change wires... The plate you remove to excess the wires should have instructions on it to chance from high/low voltage...
