For those who have always wanted to visit a foreign country, but hesitate because they don’t know the language, a new translator book will give them the confidence to follow their dreams. Ed Fenne, who originally wrote commonly used phrases and words on index cards for him and his wife to use in everyday life after they moved to Mexico, has developed a book for travelers, “iCommunicate.” The index cards were small and easy to fit in a pocket or handbag, but not in an organized format. That’s when Ed had the idea of creating a unique translator book that not only provides ease of use, but also is organized in easy to find topics.
“iCommunicate” works for those who have learned a second language and their skills have become rusty, as well as for those who have no experience with the language at all. In fact, Ed says he still uses his book every day to communicate and won’t travel anywhere without it. He designed the book to fit in a shirt pocket or handbag so it is easy to take anywhere.
The book can also be used to practice commonly used words and phrases. In addition, common words are paired with the phrases in which they are commonly used to make it easier to form sentences. In addition, if you can’t pronounce it, all you have to do is just point to the word in the book for the person to read.
“iCommunicate” is divided into simple categories such as shopping, restaurants, mechanic, doctor and dentist. To find help, all you have to do is find the section that applies to the situation. For example, if you go to the market to shop, turn to the shopping section to find the most common words or phrases to help communicate exactly what you would like to buy. When it is time to pay for your items, turn to the numbers page. It’s that simple to communicate with ease and confidence.
Ed has created “iCommunicate” to give travelers the confidence to break all language barriers and remove limitations and fear, which will allow them to explore our world and enjoy the diverse languages, cultures and people. His book will enable travelers to enjoy trips that are meaningful and rewarding.
The book is also accompanied by a helpful website that provides additional resources for communication, such as free video tutorials with lessons on proper pronunciation. To visit the “iCommunicate” website, go to www.yourpersonaltrainer.com.
Ed also offers 911 Translate, called 911T for short, which is an on-demand translation service to help businesses dealing with foreign clients or anyone traveling abroad. For more information, visit www.911translate.com.
