Travel Translator comes handy in foreign countries


travel-translatorGoing on a holiday can be fun, especially if you’re headed off to a foreign country where everything seems new to you in addition to having to adapt to a new culture and language. This fun feeling might not last too long as you start to get frustrated by your inability to communicate with the locals, especially for those who are particular about the kind of food they eat and how they like their steak done. Well, the Travel Translator will definitely come in handy as it is able to handle up to 12 languages.

It not only says the phrase you need out loud in the language of your choice, but will say it in your language as well as the translated one, so that you know exactly what you’re saying and can avoid any “excuse me but there seems to be a Belgian in my salad. Please contact a chiropractor” moments. This handy pocket sized gizmo holds over 8000 commonly used phrases in a whopping 12 languages, handily organised into eight categories, so the next time you’re desperately trying to buy some paracetamol after a few too many sambucas you’ll be able to zip in and out of the chemists without having to resort to an advanced series of mimes (with or without balloon animals).

We all know that learning a new language is no mean task, but we’re sure folks appreciate tourists who take the effort to connect with the local diaspora. The £39.99 Travel Translator ought to be something all English-speaking tourists not leave home without.

Good Day,

I represent the TCB Publishing Group. We are the publishers of Vita Nova, a monthly luxury lifestyle magazine distributed to 10,000 Medical professionals in South Africa. The 100-page magazine is published in a large A4-plus size, printed on environmentally friendly matt paper, and finished with foiling and spot UV varnish on the cover.

We would be very interested to receive more information on Travel Translator, which we hope to feature in the next edition of Vita Nova, in a section titled “Tech Talk”.

I would appreciate it greatly if you can forward me a press release and some high-resolution images on the above mentioned.

If you can add me to your mailing list for future product releases, or simply for products you which to promote, I will make sure that you get regular exposure in Vita Nova magazine, and depending on the product, perhaps also in some of the other titles in our portfolio.

The TCB Group currently publishes 14 titles, including 3 in-flight magazines and the official guest magazine for The Blue Train, South Africa’s iconic and luxurious train that runs between Pretoria and Cape Town.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Kind Regards
