Language Translator


Recommended Posts

I was watching this TV program "90 day Fiancé"...yer I know , I hate to admit to watching something like that. I watched an episode about an American girl gets married , has a kid to a S Korean guy, they live in Korea, she doesn't speak any Korean & his English is woeful. but they both have these hand held language translators, not like the usual Iphone type where you can only do a limited amount. but 3-4 long sentences at a time--they were having an argument about him having his bank account in his parents name ---he was trying to explain this is not unusual in Korea.  I was very impressed with how quickly the translator worked in a clear tone . They were shouting and  arguing and the machine's (had one each) never missed a beat, and,  I could only tell from the English side but it never came like a Google type translation.

I looked on Lazada and they can go for up to 20K baht, but I don't know what I am looking at. I have to do some extension work, and I am in general interested in buying one, if their as good as that.

 

Has any had experience with them or can recommend one brand above the others. I do not want to put an App on a phone etc after seeing how good these were.

were they on line or off line, maybe going back to the end of the show, where they show the credits, there could be a mention of some supplier or device name, did you try to access the show website, usually they advertise these type of stuff, keeps us posted, it sounds interesting
