Own a Portable Rosetta Stone

Traveling to a foreign country is always exciting, but contrary to popular belief, not everyone speaks English. Thanks to Nomenta Industries, you can conquer the language barrier without totally butchering it. The Trinvo TR01 Talking Translator is a handy device that is the globe-trotting traveler's new best friend.


The translator can cross-translate in 12 languages, including Arabic, Chinese (Manadarin), French and Spanish to name a few. It comes loaded with 750 commonly spoken travelers' phrases, 2500 words for each language, and 8 categories of "fast search desire questions." Each spoken in a clear, easy to understand human voice.eliminating the time-intensive, frustrating and often embarrassing experience of trying to get your point across in a language you can barely pronounce. It also has nifty sightseeing tips for each language.

The Trinvo is about the size of an iPod classic. It also shares a couple of other features with music player including a flywheel for speedy navigation and games (Hangman and Quiz) to stave off boredom that can rear its ugly head during your travels. There is also an earphone jack so you can plug in and get some private tutoring, so one day you can communicate without Trinvo assistance. Until then just keep a supply of AAA batteries on hand and the world is your oyster to explore.


Available in aluminum, black, and white with either a read, orange, or green backdrop, the Trinvo TR01 Talking Translator is a stylish must-have addition to your travels.No word yet on pricing, but the TR01 is a great tool for beginner travelers getting their first passport stamps.
