|Subject: Language Translator|
Harry asked about translator machines.
Our suggestion would be that a simple phrasebook might be more useful.
We've had good results with one that Rick Steves publishes, four by six inch pocket-size for about $US 10 which covers French, Italian, and German in one book. A section for each language, each with survival phrases, numbers money and time, transportation, getting a place to sleep, extensive coverage of food and menus, shopping, phoning and mailing, help, health, and chatting with local folks, plus a multi-lingual dictionary. All in one book. Rick also publishes individual language phrasebooks.
