Live Conversation Speaking Translator from Hammacher Schlemmer

Techstination feature for Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       How cool would it be to have a gadget that you could speak into….and have it translate what you say into another language.     There are apps and phones that try to do that….but they typically can’t do full sentences.   The new Live Conversation Speaking Translator ….being sold by Hammacher Schlemmer…can translate 12 languages without needing an Internet connection…and can do 21 more languages when connected to the net.  Director of Merchandising Stephen Farrell …

“In this case, this product was developed by a language company, so they’re not using sort of Google generic word translation.   They’re catering to an education…it’s actually built for an education audience.  But in this case, in the United States, it’s probably going to be used more as a translator.”

The Live Conversation Speaking Translator sells for about 350 dollars.
