The easy-to-use, highly-organized, recently-upgraded InterNACHI Narrative library has now been translated into Spanish. This template is designed for those inspecting homes in the USA and Canada serving clients with limited English skills. Using this Home Inspector Pro template you can:
- Generate reports in English, Spanish or in both;
- Generate reports that give titles, documents and narratives in both English and Spanish;
- Extend your market, expand your service, and enhance your reputation for serving and protecting homebuyers who in the past have been at a disadvantage.
This library contains approximately:
- 14,000 narratives (English and Spanish combined). For comparison, an average mystery novel is about 70,000 words. Years spent organizing, revising and streamlining the core format and carefully-chosen color coding of the Spanish Narratives allow you to find narratives relatively quickly.
- 700 Damage Panels;
- 138 drop-down lists.

Important things to understand about formatting This template is a little different from standard templates. Learn how to maintain important format settings for correct report printing.
About the Format
-- Click image to enlarge --
- Section and Heading titles are given in both English and Spanish.
- English narratives are shown in black font, Spanish in light blue. This allows you to scan more quickly for the English narrative you need while ignoring text in Spanish. Once you find the English narrative you need, the corresponding Spanish narrative is located immediately below.
- As with the standard template, narratives are separated into small groups by dividing lines. This means that instead of having to look at each individual narrative in a long list, your eye can quickly scan narrative groups for the one you need.
The custom documents are provided in both English and Spanish (in the same document). The Spanish versions are in blue font, following the same format as the narratives.
Drop-down lists follow the same general format with the Spanish term located just beneath the English term. Where necessary, the appropriate Spanish article precedes masculine and feminine nouns.
Creating Duplicate Headings
You can create duplicates of common home features like Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Staircases, etc.. The narratives refer to "this" bedroom, bathroom or staircase, meaning that the English and Spanish narratives will work for as many duplicates as you need. The title will provide the location of the duplicate.
