Handheld Emergency Medical English-Haitian Voice Translators Available to Assist Earthquake Relief Efforts

Handheld Emergency Medical English-Haitian Voice Translators Available to Assist Earthquake Relief Efforts


The ECTACO SpeechGuard MD-5 allows emergency responders and medical personnel in Haiti to benefit from instant speech-to-speech communication

Monday, January 18, 2010, Long Island City, NY - Following the devastating earthquake in Haiti, ECTACO, Inc., the worldwide leader in hand-held translation devices releases the first English-Haitian (Creole) Speech-to-Speech Medical translator.

For 20 years as developers and manufacturers of linguistic products, ECTACO has helped millions of people worldwide to overcome language barriers. The SpeechGuard handheld speech-to-speech device was initially requested by the Department of Defense to be developed for translation use by the military. It has subsequently become used by many, including law enforcement, medical and Homeland Security agencies throughout the United States.

ECTACO’s SpeechGuard MD-5 is the only handheld electronic speech-to-speech device with first responder and medical content that affords translation from English to Haitian (Creole). Simply speak into the SpeechGuard in English where it will translate and repeat what you say in Haitian (Creole) instantly based on the recognition of its Audio Phrasebook. “In support of disaster recovery and emergency medical efforts in Haiti, we have readily made available thousands of dedicated units to be shipped expeditiously”, notes Ectaco CEO, David Lubinitsky.

The handheld and pocket sized SpeechGuard is very easy to operate and takes 15-20 minutes of handling to get familiarized with its use. Users can speak a command, phrase, or question into SpeechGuard and be instantly understood in numerous languages based on the modification. Modifications include PD-5 (Law Enforcement), GI-5 (Military), HS-5 (Homeland Security), and MD-5 (Medical).

Orders can be placed with Tim Houston at 718-728-1728 or visit for further information.
