Slow and Singular,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Franklin TGA490 12 Language Speaking Global Translator (Office Product)
Bought this product in 2008 for a trip to Russia and was very disappointed.It is cleverly marketed to seem as though you only need to tap out a sentence on the keyboard composed by yourself and the machine will automatically translate both written and verbally in the paired language. As other reviewers have pointed out this is not the case with only one word at a time allowed to be inputted into the machine and even then it struggled with some words to find a compatible meaning in Russian.
Prompted to write this review as have lent to friends and family since 2008 and all have expressed their disappointment in this translators limited capabilities,
THEREFORE SAVE YOUR MONEY AS THIS PRODUCT COST ME £96.49 OVER 3 YEARS AGO AND WAS NOT WORTH THE PRICE THEN!
