A large part of learning a new language is in learning to understand how to pronounce the words you read in that language.

I am a learner of Chinese Mandarin and as such I need to be able to read Pinyin (a romanized translation of the Chinese characters.)

This piece of technology is essentially like a portable "Google Translate", so when I want to learn a word or a phrase, I look it up on the Translator and push a button for it to speak it in Chinese. The Pinyin and the original Chinese characters are shown on screen along with the English. The language is spoken by a native speaker.

I have read reviews complaining that the sound is tinny, which is true (in some but not all recordings) however, this is more of an aesthetic problem and does not inhibit your ability to understand the pronunciation.

The machine itself is robust and has a nice weight, showing quality. I get the impression that this would survive being bashed about in a bag while traveling.

This would suit people who are into language learning and students of all ages who are learning languages in schools or universities.

To Summarise:
- helps with pronunciation
- sound is tinny, but not a real problem
- robust, sleek design
- small, very portable item
- adjustable volume
- can use headphones comfortably
- native speakers, not robots
- gives original characters as well as romanized language (in cases where this applies)
- nice key pad
- backlight
- adjustable font size
- 2 x AAA batteries included
- easy to work
- works well in combination with a dictionary
- fun learning tool!

Translating words or phrases requires so many key strokes that it's much quicker to find the words in a conventional dictionary, also if not used regularly the sequences are easily forgotten. Disappointing and a waste of money.

FABULOUS ITEM 27 Jan. 2011
By PAT - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am about to embark on my first trip outside the good ole' USA, heading to Paris & possibly Amsterdam. One of my concerns is communication & money exchange. After purchasing & returning within a day, another translator, I did my homework on this one & found it had much better features that will help me. I received it within about a week & a half & immediatlely found it to be something I will benefit from. One feature I was specifically looking for was a backlight. Without it, if you're in a dimly lit area, it will be no good to you. I've only had it for a day & found it to be pretty easy to use. Of course, there are many features I've yet to learn about, but I'll be happy with the basics.

The voices are very clear & not robotic. The main language you choose is a man's voice & the translated voice is a woman's. The screen is easy to read & there is an adjustment for the size of the text. The translator itself is about the size of a cell phone. It comes with a carrying case, ear phones, batteries & computer connector.

Although I still need to familiarize myself with the many features, I highly recommend this product.

Do more research 4 April 2011
By Kaygeeess - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This product is quite restricted in what it can do. I'm disappointed with it's performance and would encourage other prospective buyers to do more research and actually use the product before buying. I retrospect I should have spent more money to get a more versatile translator that can convert more expressions that are used not just holiday phrases. Also, the playback vocals aren't as clear as they should be.

pretty cool 6 Feb. 2011
By Alex Ferdman - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this one for three languages--Japanese, Spanish and Russian and didnt expect much but i was mistaken. on same screen you can install any of the 14 languages plus your target language and play with translation. it clearly pronounce words in both languages and has two buttons for purpose. it has menu where you can jump to different options. what i dont like is screen snd keyboard size, you actually need magnifying glass to see keyboard and screen contrast is not enough though it has adjustment. and in japanese you use romanaized alphabet not kanji. it doesnt have any slang as i hoped but it has multiple choices for words.

Pretty Good, Not Great 30 Jun. 2011
By D. Auces - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I bought this gadget to help me with my trip to France and as a gift for my "ex" (who speaks mostly Russian) who I met in Paris. It works fairly well. I was confused by the ad. Guess I was thinking you could enter a simple phrase and it would translate same. But that's NOT what it does. You enter a word (verb or noun) and it renders back a list of possible phrases using that word. I speak some French, Russian and German. I'm fluent in English and Spanish. So I tested the gizmo with a variety of words (from my memory)and it seemed to do a fair job of providing key phrases. The best feature of the device is its vocalization feature. You can press one of two buttons and it will vocalize the phrase in the source OR the target langauge. Pretty cool. Just wish it had an option to select a feminine or less harsh sounding voice. The male voice sounds like it hates life! There are some words it just didn't have in its arsenal. It has a feature to add more words but I didn't test that before handing it over to my "ex" (she seemed to like it).

Unique Product that does what mom wanted it to do 4 Jan. 2011
By Margaret Durbin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
My mother lives in Korea and wanted a translator that she could key in the Korean text (in Korean letters, not romanized) and find out the English meaning and this does just that.

It also has Arabic and Cyrillic characters on the keyboard. It does NOT have Japanese or Chinese characters on the keyboard.

If you are purchasing this as a gift - when the descriptions says "Allows for Pinyin (Chinese) and Romaji (Japanese) input via QWERTY keys" it means that the characters are not on the keyboard and you have to know how to pronounce the words phoenetically in order to translate them. I had to conclude from that that they meant the others ARE included on the keyboard so I thought I'd make it easier for someone else to figure that out - The other three languages using different character sets do appear on the keyboard so that actual input would match say a sign or menu.
