ABSTRACT
The article is the author's personal account of entering into the Spanish-language indexing market and presents recommendations for indexers interested in pursuing foreign language indexing. The demographic changes in the United States have prompted an increase in the demand for quality Spanish-language research tools as the Hispanic population continues to grow. The types of materials which need indexes range from translations of best-sellers to technical manuals to textbooks, thus the work is varied and interesting for the indexer.
