The SIGMO translator allows real-time translation of 25 different languages. The compact device can be clipped on your belt or collar, or worn with its included lanyard, which makes it ideal for travel. The SIGMO operates in conjunction with your Android or IOS system through Bluetooth.

The device doesn’t require a high speed data connection, just a connection to your phone. The company aims for improvements of the next SIGMO generation to include a download of its multi-lingual voice vocabulary for offline use.
