TestimonialsECTACO Partner LUX 2 English <-> Spanish Free Speech Electronic Translator
The best I was able to find, although a bit expensive, this product has all the bells and whistles necessary for everyday use as a translator. I live in Spain and use this product on a daily basis.
ECTACO 500AL Multilingual Translator
This does take about 5-7 minutes to load another language, but it has been a very helpful classroom resource in my English as a Second Language class. I can let a student use it to translate Tagalog for part of the class and let another student use it to translate in Spanish for the next part. Multiple languages are already pre-loaded.
I like giving this to students instead of Google Translate, so they can use their own language skills and just look up one word or phrase at a time.
Frances M. Woolnoughon, March 23, 2015
The device works perfectly!! It helps me a lot through my studies! I would recommend it to all students who take lots of notes!
ECTACO SpeechGuard TLX
I got it a few days ago. This smartphone is impressive. I added a personal phone number for Skype and now its like having three cell phones in one. This thing should win product of the year easily just like magic jack did a few years ago.
Its a must if you like visiting other countries or just simply if you want to dump your cell phone bill.
ECTACO Partner LUX English <-> Russian Free Speech Electronic Translator
The LUX Russian English Partner is wonderful, really an impressive machine, and so amazingly accurate on "hearing" what we say. Thanks for recommending it. Tanya's English is at the point where no book can really help, and this Partner is perfect.

ECTACO Partner EP900 English <-> Polish
Hi Leslie, I just received a new Dictionary. In the beginning, my wife thought the Dictionary is too expensive for us. Then she realized, it's worth all the money. We both speak English and we live in Canada for over twenty years, still, there is a lot to learn. Thank you very much for your help.
I received your order and I am very pleased with your service. I am looking forward to buy more products in the future since many friends of mine are interested in Albania for your products.

Just wanted to tell you how much my husband enjoys his "Partner" translater. We have had it for a few years now and he uses it almost daily. Again, thanks for a great product.

Dear Mrs. Amy, I don't know if I have the right to, but I really want to thank you about my order. I'm satisfied with the content of my product. Have a great day,
Gaetan Junior KeyaECTACO jetBook-Lite
I love this ereader! Especially the user controlled AA battery system and the many ebook formats it has. But, it was the battery system that got me to purchase this ereader!!!
Anthony SousaECTACO jetBook-Lite
It is easy to use, hold, and read. Thanks. Even without the SD card, it holds a lot of books. I love using it.
Nancy PickloECTACO jetBook-Lite
I read my first book on my new JB-L - an Adobe PDF ebook I borrowed from the library. I have to tell you I am tickled pink with this ereader. I love its small size, light weight, landscape mode, all the formats it supports (handles PDF beautifully), the fact that it does NOT have a backlight, the fact that it takes regular batteries. . . and on and on and on. I''m thrilled with my purchase! =)
Nashelle SwartzentruberECTACO jetBook-Lite
Love this reader. My parents bought this as a gift for me. Even in low light, I can read the fonts and my eyes aren''t strained. Even though it doesn''t read audiobooks, I''m quite satisfied with it.
Sheila NoackECTACO jetBook mini
Well, I've been using my JetBook Mini now for about 2 months. And I've grown to love it even more that I did at first. I find that I can carry it around in my coat pocket just fine. I can pull it out and read wherever I am?which is normally at the grocery store waiting for my wife to do her thing. I love it.
I had to replace the batteries in the thing last week. After using it an average of 3 hours a day for the last month or so, the original AAA batteries gave up the ghost. I have grown to love the auto-shutoff feature that turns it off whenever I sit it down. I never have to remember to do it manually. This time I stuck in some rechargeable AAA cells, so when it dies this time, I'll simply recharge them.
My wife got a Nook for Christmas. It is a beautiful device. She uses it while sitting in her recliner. It certainly has some features I wish I had on my Jetbook Mini. Probably if there were a few things I do wish I had it would be the ability to display graphics. There are a few eBooks that I own that have embedded graphics in them. I wish the Mini could handle them, even if they were in monochrome, that would be fine with me. Also I find I am truly missing the "search by keyboard" function that is found on most all other eBook readers and always on all pocketpcs/handheld pc devices.
The conversion process isn't perfect either. Some of the characters when converting to .txt format do not come out as they should. This normally has to do with the original eBook using italics, or parenthesis, or some unusual print structure. Still, it has never impeded my reading the story to the end?and it is the exception rather than the rule.
So after 2 months do I still think the Jetbook Mini beats every other handheld pc or pocketpcs device for use as an eBook reader? The answer is YES, it certainly does. And I'll go one step further. I've seen people squinting and going blind reading things on the cell phones, using them as eBook readers. No thank you?I'll keep the mini! Read more...
Rich HawleyECTACO Partner EST900 English <-> Spanish
You have taken such good care of this order and assisting me in making the right purchase. It is quite surprising to me, the level of customer service I have received :) I will be telling my friends here that ECTACO is THE translator to buy... you can bet that when I pull mine out and use it they will all be asking where I bought it!! My situation is a bit unusual... I am retiring to Boquete` Panama and there are 1,000 other expats doing the same thing as I here, so they too have a need for clear communications in their new homes :)
You have been a great help to me! Thank you and I hope your day is fantastic :)

Y'all are unbelievable! I was hoping to score a case for my jetBook LITE and to get one for my son, dad, and friend as well is really awesome!
Not only will I keep reading, but I'll continue to recommend your product to everyone I can as well. In addition to the jetBook LITE being the best ebook reader out there, the Ectaco team are great people too!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, and thank you for the four cases and the opportunity to win them with the contest.

I have had confirmation from Paypal that you have refunded my money. Today my translator was delivered.
I would just like to say the customer service that I received from You and your company has been fantastic!!!!!!!!!
Thanks again & I would definitely (& already have) recommend your company & its products.
Jackie EvansjetBook JB-5
If you have parents that read, I'd highly recommend it.
My Dad has been struggling with Macular Degeneration, so he reads landscape style on the largest font size. His small local library only has about 50 large print books. So he's really enjoying being able to read again.

I purchased the ER850 for my trip to Ukraine, and wanted to let you know how happy I was with this product. It worked so good I did not need to hire a translator during my visit I was able to communicate with my lady friend very easily, it?s very user friendly what a great product.
I've just received a parcel containing both devices ordered only a week ago! I'm very happy it could have been done so fast and I want to thank you warmly for your professionalism. All is working correctly and I'm satisfied with your products. Looking forward to placing some new order by the Ectaco company, thank you again!
Earlier this month my husband and I went on our first cruise. In my effort to pack lightly I only took one tech gadget with me and of course that was an e-book reader. I wanted something small, light, but with enough screen space. I decided to take me latest acquisition the Jetbook.

Hello, guys! Thanks for your JetBook. I bought it 2 weeks ago and constantly reading on my daily ride from NJ to Manhattan and while waiting kids from their tennis class. I probably read more books with JetBook in these 2 weeks than in the past 2 years. Thanks to Ann Smith for teaching me where to get free content. Good lack with your new projects.
PS: I tried morning downloads from news sites. Works perfect.
Felix Katz, Marlboro, NJECTACO Partner ER800
Just a quick note to let you know how helpful the ER 800 was on my recent trip. I travelled to the Ukraine twice and all over Russia. Even though I'm a very experienced traveler I have no idea what I would have done without it, especially in Siberia. Thanks again for all your efforts to provide me with a working model in a very short time.
I've recommended that my company purchase units for all employees going to foreign countries. Hopefully you'll be hearing from Twin Disc, Inc.
Best Regards, Ed Wilson
