    This does take about 5-7 minutes to load another language, but it has been a very helpful classroom resource in my English as a Second Language class. I can let a student use it to translate Tagalog for part of the class and let another student use it to translate in Spanish for the next part. Multiple languages are already pre-loaded.
    I like giving this to students instead of Google Translate, so they can use their own language skills and just look up one word or phrase at a time.
