Best Portable Language Translation Devices
One of the challenges you will face as you travel or move to Crete, and Greece at large is the language barrier. The Greek Language is not easy, and if you are planning to live in Crete, you might need assistance to communicate with the Greek people because most of them, especially the older ones don’t speak English. And that is why this list of portable language translation devices might be just what you have been looking for.
Although there some free tools out there that you can use, like Google translator, sometimes you just might need a language translation device that will do more for you, and besides Google translate app, does not have many options, for you to choose from so you will just have to live with whatever you get. That is why I decided to compile this list of best portable language translation devices.
Some devices on this list might even help you learn Greek or any other language because they are able to turn your conversation into text and save it, or send it to your phone which helps you learn new phrases. Some even have popular phrases programmed into them making it easier for you to find a commonly used phrase.
