"I am very happy with my iTravl! Why should you have to waste your time and money on books trying to learn the language when you can take the easy way out and just buy this device? Now I can travel to about any country and not have to worry about the language barrier!" -- Dwayne Pruitt, Miami, FL
These are samples of audio from some of the languages available on the iTravl translator. The sample is "It's nice to meet you."
While these samples are from the translation phrasebook, this same high-quality, natural human voice is also in the translation dictionary and in the free 183-language cross-language pictured dictionary included in every iTravl translator (for the multi-language versions, the pictured dictionary is 39 languages for units with more than 9 languages in the main translation tools, for example the 19EE).
The iTravl electronic translator provides several easy to use translation tools. Because these tools all work in both directions, they allow two people with different languages to communicate.
Full text translation. Enter your own random sentences. Available only in certain languages (see the specs tab of a given product).
Translation dictionary. Look up single words. Natural human voice output in many language sets (see specs tab of a given product).
Translating phrasebook. Contains 7,000 phrases per language (so 14,000 on any two-language translator). Natural human voice, regardless of language. Speech recognition for selecting phrases.
Pictured dictionary. Contains hundreds of words in 183 different languages, plus natural human voice output. Translates between any two languages, and shows picture of what is being translated.
The iTravl translator provides several easy to use language learning tools.
Language Teacher (most models, see specs tab). The interactive language teacher system is a powerful tool for learning other languages. It can listen to you and tell you how well you pronounce something in another language.

Linguistic Crossword. A crossword puzzle that helps you learn new words in the target language.
Linguistic Flashcards. Four different flashcard games that help you learn new words in the target language.

The iTravl electronic translator has some more functions you'll probably enjoy, and/or find useful:
Calculator. The basic math functions, plus a few more things such as square root, inversion, and memory. A cool feature: It has a Back key!
English Dictionary. This is the WordNet Princeton Dictionary of Modern English, with over 70,000 head words and detailed explanations. It includes all of the typical dictionary information, such as part of speech, senses, tenses, synonyms, and examples of use.
Games. Linguistic Crossword and Hangman to help you learn the other language.
More English. English Grammar, Irregular Verbs, and Idioms.
Metric Conversions. This is graphically enhanced and interactive. Well done.
Size Equivalents. Do you know the size equivalents for shirts, blouses, and shoes in the USA, UK, Europe, and Japan? Few people do. Climbers know their European shoe sizes, but most folks don't. Today, most sneakers have both European and USA sizes--take a look at yours. OK, but what about your shirt? In the USA and UK, the neck measurement determines the man's shirt size. Not so everywhere else. A woman who normally wears a size 6 blouse will have to buy a size 10 in the UK or a size 5 in Japan. In Europe, that would be a size 38. You're shopping while traveling, right?
Voice recorder. No 'splainin' to do on this one.
World time. Pretty handy when you are traveling around the world! Pretty handy if you're not traveling around the world but need to know world time anyhow. This is nicely done with a combination of graphics and picklists.
With the multi-language versions of the iTravl, you can switch language pairs with the tap of a finger. These are also the best value in a translation device.
