World's First Touch-Screen Talking Translator Now Available Nationwide

The world's first pocket-sized touch- screen talking electronic translator is now available nationwide from LINgo Corporation, the industry-leading manufacturer and marketer of full featured electronic translators and travel related accessories.

The new LINgo Touch- Screen Talking Translator carries a suggested retail price of $200 and is available at Brookstone, the Neiman Marcus catalog, and Lifestyle.

The LINgo Touch-Screen Talking Translator speaks nine languages (French, German, Spanish, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, and English), and features 180,000 words and more than 20,000 phrases in each of the nine languages. Words and phrases are categorized for easy reference. A complete traveler's tool, LINgo Touch-Screen also includes a built-in calculator, world clock, currency converter, an address/phone number databank, and ear bud headphones for privacy.

To operate, travelers need only to use the built-in stylus to tap in the word or phrase to be translated. They then select the language and Touch- Screen does the rest! The built-in voice chip clearly articulates the word or phrase in the chosen language. Like all LINgo translators, the new Touch- Screen Talking Translator comes backed by a one-year warranty. All LINgo products feature easy-to-read character displays (some units are even LCD backlit) and are powered by batteries that are included in each package.

Founded in 1990, LINgo Corporation is headquartered in both New York City and Hong Kong. The company manufactures and markets the industry's most complete line of high quality pocket-sized language translators and travel accessories. LINgo is the only manufacturer and marketer of multi-language talking translators. For more information about LINgo products and dealer locations, visit www.lingotravel.com/ or call 1-800-697-4825.
