How to use PocketTran for communication with a person who does not speak your language nor do you speak their language?

Task: You wish to tell the other person something

Task: The other person wishes to tell you something

The method described above is sufficient to enable communication between two people who do not speak the same language to communicate. The only hard part (if it can be called hard) is how quickly you can teach the other person with a show-and-do method. However, this can be done by showing the other person a few examples which in our experiments takes up to 1 minute to accomplish if one opts for teaching the other person only the keyboard input methodology.

A valuable feature of PocketTran is that it constantly tracks the translations you choose and in this way constantly learns from you. The number of learned translation choices, as well as the number of newly added words, is limited only by the amount of free memory in your PocketTran device.

License Number

Because of piracy protection (in many countries over 80%) during the first run of PocketTran, the program will ask you for a license number. In order to receive your license number, you will have to send us the reference number shown in a grayed textbox on your screen. The reference number will have 9 digits and will begin with the letter P. Please send us your reference number via e-mail to: [email protected]. Without the reference number we will be unable to send you your unique license number.

Professional Translators

The biggest advantage for professional translators is that they can cut down the time required to perform the translation of any document. Instead of carrying a heavy dictionary around, all one needs is a handheld device that contains all the translations that will be needed from time to time.

PocketTran offers a number of alternative translations so that you don't need to look in specialised dictionaries for an appropriate translation.

The other advantage for professional translators is that they can optimise the software for their needs so that they can enter their preferred translations which the program will memorise and offer at the top of the list of alternative translations during every subsequent translation session.

If you have a list of translations in any specialised area, e.g. 500 or 1000, you can send these to us so that we can optimise our translation software. The package which includes optimisation of the software is called PocketTran Professional. For more information on the PocketTran Professional edition of our software please send us an e-mail to: [email protected].
