Universal Translator UT 106

Don't leave home without it! The Universal Translator UT 106 lets you communicate with clients using speech-to-speech technology that translates phrases from English into French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish. Simply speak into the built-in, noise-canceling microphone, and the Universal Translator speaks the translated phrase. New languages and database upgrades are available via the Ectaco Web site.
