I was looking for an electronic translator and found your site.

Here is my need:

I have met someone from Switzerland who speaks only german and poorly english.
We use the moderatly decent Google translation feature when chatting to communicate but it's translations are somewhat funny most of the time. (makes some odd reactions from both sides)

She is flying over to meet me this summer but I am afraid communication in person will be tough without any handheld device...

I was looking at the ITRAVEL, wich seems very nice, but all the features seem very overwhelming for someone who doesn't really "travel".

All I want is a very good translator for English-German so that I can communicate with my Swiss friend easily and learn each other's language.

Anything worthy other that the ITravel? (P.S I do like the Speak feature of the ITravel, though)

Thanks a lot !

Thank you for your inquiry.

I'd recommend our new English <-> German ECTACO Partner EGm900 Talking Electronic Dictionary and Audio PhraseBook which you may find online at

The Partner EGm900 actually allows typing in any text in English in order to have it translated into German and vice versa.
Once translated, the text can then be spoken aloud in German or in English using the latest text-to-speech voice synthesis.

The device has a bilingual user's interface so you and your Swiss friend can use it easily.

The EGm900 model also features our interactive Language Teacher system which lets you learn German quickly and effectively.

Language Teacher will pronounce words, phrases and dialogs for you. It will show you German word written in German, show you translation in English, show you visual image of this word, pronounce it for you in German, evaluate your pronunciation and offer you a test to make sure you do it correctly.
The Language Teacher system works in a similar way for German speakers learning English.

This unique system gradually builds up your vocabulary and pronunciation through lessons and quizzes you can take at your own pace. It even shows the percentage of how many lessons you have completed and how well you're doing.

As an additional benefit, the Partner EGm900 comes equipped with our customizable translating jetBook e-book reader with multiple file format support.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,
Val Reaves,
