Product Description

This translator serves as a handy speaking tool for international travellers and tourists. It allows the user to cross translate 12 international languages and each language stores 700 commonly used travelling topic sentences. You'll be able to communicate easily and quickly in a foreign country. Simply select the language, topic of conversation, and sentence you would like to speak using the LCD display. The translator will display the sentence in the original language (usually English) and speak the sentence in the desired foreign language. Handheld electronic translators are the modern answer to paper dictionaries. They are smaller, fashionable and you only need one in order to speak many languages! Since this device speaks the phrases aloud, you can be sure you are pronouncing foreign words correctly, making for a more enjoyable holiday or business trip. Supplied with protective carry pouch including strap, the translator cross translates 12 International languages - English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Swedish, Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin) and Turkish and you can save frequently used sentences. Words are spoken and displayed and the translator includes 8 frequently required categories: General, Emergency, Entertainment, Sightseeing, Direction, Restaurants, Transport and Hotel. The device also features a world time daily alarm clock and calendar for 24 cities, and the display shows hour, minutes, day, date and month. A built-in data-file stores up to 60 sets of phone numbers (with names) with a password security lock. The translator has an LCD display with adjustable contrast, volume level selection (3 levels), key tone on/off switch, auto power off and display backlight which can be turned off to preserve batteries.

Customer Reviews:

  • Slow but helpful.
    I read several of the reviews written on this product before I purchased it. They seemed so positive I decided to buy it for my trip to Mexico. Now I'm wondering if these reviewers were looking at the same translator.

    The audio voice is very mechanical and at times the dialect is rather difficult to understand. I teach diction and know standard Spanish but some of the sounds one hears pronounced, even some fairly simple words, are strange to my ear. If one has to wait for the phrases to scroll to completion, the person you are trying to communicate with would probably walk off. This product is way too slow. ...more info
  • Works great
    Very untuitive. Small, visible display. Like the backlight option. Lots of phrases but still need an electronic or printed dictionary for individual words....more info
  • Loved it!
    Loved it! Was very handy in every country we visited. Especially nice to look-up simple 'please' and 'thank-you' type of phrases. For the money, it was a very nice little translator....more info

  • Poor Quality
    Before my daughter even got to use the translator for her upcoming trip to Italy it broke!!! When I pressed the reset key that you have to press to start the device working, it stayed depressed and the translator would not work :( I had to send it back. I wanted to give it no stars but could not....more info
  • Neat gadget, unfortunately not very useful for travel
    We purchased this translator for a recent trip to France and Italy. We played with it before we left and attempted to use it a few times during the first part of the trip. Navigating through the various menus to try to find the one phrase you're looking for just takes way too long. And, it is missing key phrases like, "Do you speak English?" After the first couple days, we gave up on the talking translator and relied instead on a French/Italian/English phrase book with pronunciations that we picked up for free at the library. Save your money - it is not nearly as useful as you might hope. ...more info
  • ShopTronics.com & the 12 language Nyrus
    The Nyrus 12 language translator has been easy to set up and is fun to use. I purchased this item thru ShopTronics.com and my Nyrus arrived much sooner than expected and exactly as described. Great service and a great product for a very fair price.
