Have you heard of portable translators? I've seen a lot of similar products being sold on Instagram ads, but I never really cared, because the advertisements were in English. In this article I want to talk a little about these translators.

There are several portable translators. Some work paired with cell phones, others need internet, while others more expensive promise to do everything yourself without depending on the internet, through storage and internal system.

Why do I need a portable translator?

Some may question the reason for having a portable translator with the existence of smartphones. The advantage of this device is that it works completely with audio and instantly, something difficult to be done by cell phones.

Another advantage of the portable translator is that many of them do not need the internet. No matter what the end of the world you are in, you can be carefree when communicating with the natives of each country during your trip.

It is also very portable and has a battery lasting more than 6 hours. Most devices translate into more than 40 languages. These devices can vary from 100 to 1,000 reais depending on model and functionality.

How to buy a decent portable translator?

People use the advertisements and proposal of the portable translator to turn it into a profitable and easy to convert product. People are attracted to the product's features and end up buying on impulse without precision or without searching for the right one.

The products do usually deliver what they promise, but unfortunately it is difficult to identify a real advertisement or find an original translator that fulfills its function without relying on smartphone or bluetooth applications.

These products are viral, which has led to the emergence of thousands of low quality products built in China that promise to perform the same functions.

Unfortunately I did not have my experience with these portable translators to give an opinion. This article was to publicize the portable translator that a friend was selling, but unfortunately he disappointed me and did not fulfill the promised requirements.

What made me change that article. Fortunately, we had nothing but two sales, so I believe that no one was harmed by the purchase of a Chinese translator and a somewhat misleading advertisement that promised translation without relying on cell phones and offline. Both were on the repayment term.

The product of the photos in this article belong to the translator: New Offline Type Speech Translator ili LM11-JA002A. This model really promises offline translation independent of applications and other functions. So much so that it costs much more than the others.
