The ECTACO ES850 is the newest generation talking handheld translation device from the remarkable Partner line.

You have never seen anything like it before! Imagine a translator that not only helps facilitate communication with others and translates anything you want, but now teaches you the language too!

It's like having your own personal private tutor; the Language Teacher section speaks to you using fluent native-language voice narration giving you step by step instructions, quizzes, and pronunciation help so you can start speaking correctly in no time at all!

Combining words, pictures, and lessons, you talk into the translator and it tells you if you're pronouncing the words or phrases properly and then actually shows you how to say them, so you'll learn through speaking and listening at the same time.

If that weren't enough, you have access to a complete dictionary filled with over 1,010,000 words you can look up instantly if your having trouble. And don't forget that there's a section of over 14,000 pre-recorded phrases spoken in fluent English and Spanish.

Language Teacher

Opening a book and studying words for hours on end sometimes just won't cut it. But with a little help and a push in the right direction, learning an entire language can be accomplished in no time! The Language Teacher gradually builds up your vocabulary and pronunciation through lessons and quizzes you can take at your own pace. It even shows the percentage of how many lessons you have completed and how well you're doing!

Text Translation

Need a fast translation you can't find anywhere else? Just type in a word or sentence and hit the translate button! From English to Spanish or Spanish to English, your translation will appear instantly. Then have it pronounced by the translator or you can try yourself!

Speech Recognition

With 14,000 built in phrases, there's nothing you can't say! Just select a category, press the 'Say' button and the translator will recognize your phrase and give you a full translation which can then be pronounced fluently in that language.
