The Call of Brazil's Capoeirista

Ch-ch-ching-dong-dong. As soon as the familiar notes start, ears perk up. Ch-ch-ching-dong-dong. Within seconds, eyes start to flick around the room. Ch-ch-ching-dong-dong. Smiling people start to form a circle while clapping and swaying to the beat. Pavlov was right. It doesn’t take much. A bell for a dog, or five steely notes for a capoeirista, and off they go.

Lingvosoft Translator

One of the biggest problems travelers face is communication. Sure, we’re cosmopolitan people of the world. We’ve been around. We’ve learned bits and pieces of other languages. Maybe we’re fluent in a few and speak a smattering of a few others. Still, there are over 230 living languages spoken in Europe alone. When it comes down to it, there’s only so much language we can hold before we start to run out of space. Enter Lingvosoft, a New York-based software company. The product is their Translator line which they sell either one language-to-one other language at a time or in a so-called “ultimate” pack of English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
