Intertainment’s Ortsbo Debuts Patent Pending “Head to Head” Translation Technology for Tablet Devices


Intertainment’s Ortsbo Debuts Patent Pending “Head to Head” Translation Technology for Tablet Devices.

Very handy device for those that are patient and have sufficient language and typing skills  to go through the motions of a conversation in writing. You must be   willing to have snail-paced interactions with foreigners during travel.  Not recommended for important business.

It will be interesting to see how and what the technology evolves to.
