TCA Announces Spanish Version of Installation Handbook
ANDERSON, SC - The Tile Council of America (TCA) announces the availability of the first Spanish translation of the 2000 TCA Handbook for Ceramic Tile Installation.
One of the growing challenges contractors in the United States are facing today is how to bridge the communication barriers with a crew whose primary language is something other than English.
"We have received requests from companies all over the United States for a Spanish translation of the TCA Handbook to provide for their tile crews," remarked Robert E. Daniels, TCA executive director. "We worked with a team composed of a tile contractor and a translator to provide a manual that will be easily understood by Spanish-speaking crews across the United States."
The Manual para la Instalacion de Azulejo de Ceramica was developed to keep Spanish-speaking ceramic tile installers up-to-date on how to apply installation technology in industry-approved methods. The TCA's initial plan is to produce the Spanish version of the Handbook every two years.
"We volunteered to assist with this project because our crews include craftsmen whose first language is Spanish. This translation will help us immensely in communicating the quality of workmanship we want to provide to our clients," said Randy Reynolds of Houston-based Reynolds Tile & Flooring.
Parties interested in the Spanish translation of the TCA Handbook should call (864)646-8453.
