“Heard at Hartman” is our ongoing blog feature where we share updates on customer requests and feedback that have resulted in changes, special products, or corrections to our existing materials.
The Spanish translation of our Home Health Aide Handbook, Guía Téchnicas para Ayudantes de Salud en el Hogar, has been a popular title for us. We’re pleased to announce the fifth edition will soon be available. This year, we’ll print that version in full color (another customer request that sales of the book finally make possible)! We’ll keep you posted about the in-stock date in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, do you ever wonder why it’s a larger trim size than the English version?
Spanish translations increase the word count over the English language version. When we asked customers, we learned that many of them are using both versions in the same classroom, so keeping the same content on the same page number was really helpful. The best way to do this was to have a slightly larger page for the Spanish language version.
The English version of the 5th Edition of the Home Health Aide Handbook is in stock and ready for purchase now and if you need them. We also have all the Spanish-translated chapter and final exams available as a free download on our instructor’s website.
While not every comment or critique will result in a change, we always welcome your words, questions and feedback. You help make our products the best they can be and we’re always ready to listen. Go ahead: Be heard at Hartman!
