In case you wondered how the US Marines ask the people in Iraq: Where are the weapons of mass destruction? They use the amazing Phraselator!

VoxTec has developed the Phraselator, a one-way phrase-based voice-to-voice machine translator.
When a user speaks one of the phrases in English into the microphone, the appropriate prerecorded translation is played through the built in speaker.
The PDA stores 1000+ phrases translated into multiple languages. The Phraselator doubles also as a ruggedized pocket PDA.
The PDA runs on SA-1110 Strong ARM 206 MHz processor and has 32Mb SDRAM plus 32Mb Flash RAM on-board.
Refer to the Phraselator Product brochure for more detail.
