ATLANTA - A Spanish translation of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Pocket Guide, Guía de Bolsillo, is now available. The Pocket Guide serves as a ready reference for engineers whose mobility keeps them from easy access to the ASHRAE Handbook volumes and information in ASHRAE standards.

According to ASHRAE, translation of the Pocket Guide is part of its effort to better serve the international HVACR community by implementing various global strategies. This strategic plan, which includes the translation of ASHRAE literature into various languages, is designed to increase the value of membership worldwide and provide easier access to ASHRAE technology outside of the United States.

“With the ‘flattening’ of today’s global economy, there is greater demand for the sharing of engineering and scientific information,” said Steve Comstock, ASHRAE publisher. “Making ASHRAE literature available in other languages assists many ASHRAE members outside the United States by providing them with additional resources for their personal use and for use interacting with others in the construction industry.”

Inquiries about translation of ASHRAE documents should be sent to Comstock at comstock@ashrae.org.

The cost of Guía de Bolsillo is $42 ($34 ASHRAE members).

To order, contact ASHRAE Customer Service at 800-527-4723 (United States and Canada) or 404-636-8400 (worldwide), fax 404-321-5478, or visit www.ashrae.org/bookstore.
