WWPA offers reference materials in Spanish.

Hispanic labor in the United States is steadily growing and is expected to comprise 13 percent of the workforce by 2008, many of whom will be in manufacturing, including lumber operations. The Western Wood Products Association (WWPA) now offers their members publications in Spanish, including a publication on grading rules for light framing, structural light framing, and structural joists and planks. Since they were introduced, WWPA has used the Spanish grading rules to help Spanish speaking employees better understand lumber grades by presenting the information in their native language. WWPA also offers three other publications in Spanish--Lumber Storage, Unseasoned (Green) Lumber, and Notching and Boring Guide.
