Translate German Instantly
This section explains what the German translation tools are on the German electronic translators, and how they work. These tools help two people communicate, even though one speaks German and the other speaks English. These translation tools are designed for both you and the German speaker to use.
Free speech translation. Available in the LUX, only. This feature allows you to speak your own random sentence and get the translation, as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection. It translates German to English and English to German.
Full text translation. This feature allows you to type in your own random sentence. It's also called sentence translation. It translates German to English and English to German.
Pictured Dictionary. With the talking 183-language Picture Dictionary (180 in LUX), you can translate in any direction. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Either person can look up a word and show the other person a pictorial representation. It's simple, quick, and clear. You can also read the translation as text, or hear it spoken aloud in a natural human voice.
Translation Dictionary. This, like the phrasebook (below), is a standard feature in today's electronic translators. It allows word for word translations. On German electronic transaltors, it translates German to English and English to German. In the higher end models of German electronic translators, it also has natural human voice output (see specs tab) and provides additional information such as common phrases in which that word is used. In the Ectaco line, it differs from the Pictured Dictionary in that it doesn't have the pictures or all the languages, but does have a massively deep vocabulary for German.
The audio phrasebook was recorded with professional native German narrators. Consequently, it delivers superb voice output in both German and English.
The "You may hear" function helps another person select an answer from a list of canned answers. For instance, having picked the topic "In a restaurant," you choose a phrase. The waiter wants to reply to that phrase. You then select the "You may hear" option listed in the restaurant category (there is such an option in each category). The waiter can select the answer from the list provided.
A "phrase" is usually a complete sentence. It's called a "phrase" out of tradition.
This handy, easy to use feature is a word substitution tool for existing phrases in the phrasebook. You don't actually "build sentences" with it. Here's how you use Sentence Builder:
Choose a phrase.
Tap on a hyperlinked word in the phrase. This brings up a short list.
Tap a word from the list to replace the hyperlinked word with the one you tapped
Learn German Quickly
These German electronic translators provide easy to use programs to help you learn German or the German speaker learn English.
Language Teacher. The interactive language teacher system is a powerful tool for learning German. It can listen to you and tell you how well you pronounce something in German.
Linguistic Crossword. A crossword puzzle that helps you learn new words in German.

A pocket German electronic translator gives you control over when, what, and how you communicate to the other person. And it allows them to reply to you in kind. Some advantages of German electronic translators include:
You can communicate on your schedule. No need to arrange for a human interpretor.
Less chance of "phone game" errors. Remember the phone game you played as a kid? You pass a simple message around a circle of people and by the time it gets to the end it's entirely different. Eliminate that kind of error by leaving out human interpretors and using your pocket translator to directly communicate person to person.
Share intimate thoughts without embarrassment.
Reduce or avoid the cost of hiring a human interpretor.
Reduce or eliminate the hassle of providing transportation for you, your German counterpart, and a human interpretor.
Use your German electronic translator's Language Teacher program to gain a working knowledge of German for basic situations. The program is fun and easy. It even helps you correct your accent, using speech recognition.
