The Lingo TravelMate - 16 Language Translator is a great value as well as a superb translator. You can draw on over 320,000 words and 32,000 travel phrases.

The "16" in the TravelMate 16's name isn't just a model number. Rather, it represents the impressive number of languages handled by the compact electronic translator. Need to translate a phrase from English to German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, Dutch, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean? Look no further than the TravelMate 16. The device draws from a database of more than 320,000 words and 32,000 useful phrases, covering everything from common business questions to more travel-specific queries on restaurant and hotel locations. At the same time, it offers eight currency and metric converters--including converters for clothing and shoe size--so you won't feel uninformed while shoe shopping in Paris.
Travelers will also appreciate the TravelMate 16's powerful databank, which lets you store all of your appointments, telephone numbers, addresses, and memos for later recall. The 32k databank is a must whether you're simply sending postcards to friends or following a comprehensive business itinerary. And you can rest assured that you'll make that early morning train thanks to the world clock--with times in more than 200 cities--and the highly accurate alarm.
Additional features include a 12-digit talking calculator, an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard, a two-line dot-matrix display, an automatic power off function that preserves battery power, and an adjustable contrast. All this in a compact chassis that measures a mere 5 by 0.5 by 3.25 inches (W x H x D) when closed and fits easily in a shirt pocket or purse. The unit, which is powered by a trio of CR-2032 batteries, carries a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
