    Well, German actually. I'm translating a beautiful book on wood characteristics from German to English, and since I am by no means a wood expert, and landed on your site in search of terminology, I thought I'd humbly ask if any one would be interested in reading through some English passages now and again to see if I'm on the right track. - thanks, Susan

    I'd gladly read whatever you have but I am by no means an expert in anything you might write about.

    Well, thanks! Do you have any knowledge of wood anatomy? I'm working on a chapter now that's a bit tricky. Here's a sample:
    Wood consists of various types of cells that serve three main functions: transportation, mechanical support and storage. A 20x magnification of a softwood root already shows how the different cell types have grown together to form a defined structure. (Fig. 1). Longitudinal tracheid, the most common cell type, conduct water up the length of the trunk and serve to strengthen the wood. Wood ray tracheids transport nutrients in a radial direction. Living longitudinal parenchyma cells store food reserves; living wood ray parenchyma support the exchange of material both radially and to neighboring tracheids.
    Make sense?
