Guide Picks - Top Electronic Dictionaries
Some people won't travel without an electronic dictionary, while others don't understand why they'd spend much more money on one than a book would cost, even though the electronic device usually has fewer words than a printed dictionary and usually includes fewer definitions per word. Some include extra features such as electronic organizing, alarms, and calculators.
1) Franklin English-Spanish Translator TES-118
This translator leads the pack not because of its features but because of its low cost. And its vocabulary isn't bad at all — the tiny device includes 650,000 translations, 2,000 conversational phrases, verb conjugation, and a calculator.
