Travis Touch talking translator in your pocket

Techstination feature for Monday, October 15, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        A 105 language talking translator in your pocket.    That is what the new Travis Touch translator promises and it does deliver.  For travelers on vacation or on business the device could be a lifesaver…using a variety of language translation resources to make conversation easier.    Why not just use a smart phone app?    General Manager Marijn Booman…

“Google Translate is not always the best software for certain countries.  I’ve experienced this in China where if you use Google, it’s practically blocked.  So that’s why we’ve always looked and tried to find the best software for each of the countries where you’re using it in.”

While the size makes Travis Touch easy to carry around…it also means the screen is small…and some may find it difficult to navigate.    And keep in mind, while it can work offline, it will be more limited that way.   Find more at
