Ectaco, Inc. Itravl tl-2/10 Revolutionizes Handheld Translation - Again

Ectaco, Inc. releases a new handheld translation device that allows people to communicate in 10 non-English languages. The device is very user friendly and affords people who travel to numerous destinations more options.

Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2006

It used to be that if you wanted to speak another language you needed to spend years taking classes, studying late into the night and passing countless tests and exams. If you wanted to speak 10 languages you could expect to spend your entire life studying.

Now, thanks to Ectaco, Inc., the cutting-edge electronics firm from New York, all that is ancient history. As the developers of powerful new technology for corporate and governmental clients Ectaco, Inc. is now making its patented tools available to anyone with an interest in communicating easily and effectively in a number of different languages.

Their latest offering is proof of their ongoing commitment to accelerated technical evolution and is a device that even James Bond would be proud to own. The ECTACO iTRAVL TL-2/10 is a palm-sized language translator that not only recognizes human speech but also speaks back any translation in any of its 10 included languages. The iTRAVL TL-2/10 is the first translating handheld to contain so many language and voice options in a single, strikingly-designed and compact package.

Coming up with new solutions to old problems is a process that NY-based Ectaco Inc. is no stranger to, often developing new technologies at the request of important international clients. Seeing itself as a progressive company, CEO David Lubinitsky says, “As international travelers ourselves, we clearly recognized the need for serious tools able to meet the communication needs of a variety of users in a variety of situations. One of the biggest barriers to this had always been the fact that people frequently visit more than one country at a time and need to be able to communicate in a number of different languages easily. Our solution was to develop the 10 language iTRAVL TL-2/10 model that takes in the most popular world languages and provides a unique solution for the international businessman, traveler or student.”

Able to understand and speak some of the most popular Asian, Middle Eastern, and European languages the ECTACO iTRAVL TL-2/10 includes the widest range of advanced voice capabilities yet invented. Instantly translating between English, Arabic, Chinese, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese it is able to speak translations out loud to the delight of users and listeners alike.

Thanks to the unique combination of advanced speaker-independent speech recognition modules, the latest TTS text-to-speech voice synthesis and professionally narrated human voice output, the ECTACO iTRAVL TL-2/10 lets travelers get their message across quickly and easily in any environment. Providing a more natural, intuitive engagement with foreign languages, the iTRAVL TL-2/10 is everyone’s passport to barrier-free communication.
