For those that travel frequently, such as myself, the last thing that you want is to look like a lost ignorant tourist overseas. It’s already quite an adjustment to get accustomed to different cultures, yet alone comprehending foreign languages and communicating with locals.
Fortunately, there’s help. With the Franklin 14-Language Global Translator w/ Visual Dictionary, travelers could rest assured that they have everything they need abroad. Not only does this handy gadget include a dictionary and a global search feature to find all applicable translations simultaneously but also a handy guide with helpful tips on hotels, restaurants, attractions, etc.
Unlike other translators, the Franklin also has a large 2.8″ full-color screen with touch-sensitive navigation / scrolling options. Here are some other features included with this nifty device.

- Over 2.5 million entries and thousands of travel and everyday phrases translated across 14 languages.
- 18,000 item visual dictionary with translations into English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

With all the features and benefits in mind, you don’t need to lug a variety of other devices / apps with you when traveling. Besides money (Benjamin’s), all you really need is the Franklin and you can travel with confidence and success. Trust me, as a frequent traveler myself who’s typically on the road by myself, I have to say that this gadget definitely comes in handy, especially when you’re on foreign soils. Not only have I used it on countless occasions but I’ve also recommended this product to people who I know travel a lot for work.
Remember, Benjamin Franklin wisely stated that “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” So be prepared for any trip and put this Franklin in your pocket today!
