Fun to play with
on February 20, 2011
My older son was interested in linguistics for a year or two, so I bought this translator more as a toy for him than for any specific use out on the field. He had a great time plugging in different words and phrases, then seeing the way they changed in different languages. For me it was neat to help him find the Latin roots in the romance languages -- they pop up at the touch of a button!
If I were traveling abroad I'd take this with me, if only to be able to plug in what I want to say, translate it, then let a local read it him/her self :o) A nice feature is that the translation is broken out phonetically and spelled in the local language.
