BROOKFIELD, Wis. — OnCourse Learning has announced the publication of “English-Spanish Real Estate Dictionary 2nd Edition,” by authors Nora Olmos and Charles J. Jacobus.

The book, which serves as a quick reference guide for real estate professionals, features more than 2,000 real estate terms in English and Spanish that cover all essential areas of the profession. The 2ndedition includes newly added investment terms, allowing real estate professionals to navigate investment transactions easier.

“This updated edition gives all those working or involved in the real estate industry the most basic tool to navigate back and forth in English and Spanish with precise terminology,” said Brian Sholly, OnCourse Learning’s Executive Vice President, Real Estate. “The authors cover legal and financial terms that can mean something quite different in English, as well as in Spanish, providing detailed explanations that go well beyond simple translation. What emerges is a body of work that is not only bilingual but also bicultural, and essential to all endeavors in real estate.”

Olmos has more than 25 years of experience as a real estate broker and 10 years as a mortgage broker. She also has worked as a translator and a teacher. She has taught at Houston Baptist University, Houston Community College and San Jacinto Community College.

Jacobus is a fellow of the American College of Lawyers and has served as president of the Real Estate Educators’ Association and chairman of the American Bar Association Committee on Real Estate Brokers and Brokerage. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Houston and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from the University of Houston Law Center.
