Hello, it's Hiro.
I can't wait when the infection spreads day by day due to the corona sickness and when we can go on an overseas trip.
I don't know when the ban on overseas travel will be released due to the expansion of vaccination, but I would like to have a complete system in place so that I can fly overseas as soon as the ban on overseas travel is resumed.
My recommendation is STAR TALK
In conclusion, STAR TALK is recommended. I will explain in detail later.
Do you use a translator?
Sorry, I don't used it.
My motto is「when in Rome, do as the Romans do. 」
When traveling, I understand that communicating with local people is the minimum etiquette and respect.
When I travel, I understand that communicating with local people is the minimum etiquette and how I show respect to them.
You might be told that you don't need a translator, but a translator is surprisingly convenient.
Can be used instead of a dictionary
You can translate without having to google each time, just like talking to Siri.
It's better than Siri in terms of translation.
(I'm talking to Siri every day, so it's correct)
This is very convenient for learning language, isn't it?
Also, if you use it for translation from English to local language, you will notice how strange your pronunciation is.
If you think it's a lie, I recommend you to go to an electric appliance store and try it out.
（If you're shy and can't speak English, you won't be able to speak English for the rest of your life.）
Cost performance is definitely good
As of 2021, various voice translators are on sale, you can purchase them for 10,000 to 30,000 yen.
Cost performance is better than other gadgets, isn't it?
Surprisingly few voice translators support Tagalog
Sadly, there are very few translators that support Tagalog even in 2021.
Also, even the most popular model 'POCKETALK' has not been equipped with a Tagalog voice translation function for a long time.
With the 2019 update, it is finally possible to send voice though.
I actually investigated using 3 popular models in Manila
It is a survey in 2019 because it is before becoming a corona.
As a result of talking with a taxi driver and a friend in Manila using three popular translators, we reviewed the three points of ease of use, reception sensitivity, and accuracy of conversation.
The three models used in the experiment are as follows.
Try it out
ST I recomend star ta
The cost performance is the best, But Tagalog is adopted first. That point is also a good point.
I was also a recommendation from a Filipino friend I could trust, so I would like to continue using STAR TALK and have fun.
