PDACorps has posted a review of Ectaco's translation software and how it performs.
"If you’ve ever watched Star Trek, you’ve seen the “Universal Translator”—a magical device that makes it so everyone, including aliens from far off galaxies, speak in English. While this may seem the work of science fiction writers, today on the Pocket PC, such programs are closer than you may think.
Enter Ectaco’s Partner Voice Translator, a slick, although expensive, piece of software designed with the world traveller in mind. Filled with pre-programmed phrases, the Translator was created to hear phrases spoken into your Pocket PC and then translate them into another language, all at the touch of a button. Sound too good to be true? Read on to see how the Partner Voice Translator stacks up."
The program comes in versions to translate 25054 English-to-Spanish, 43931 English-to-German, 28637 English-to-French, and many more.
