Top Customer Reviews
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.
