Vasco Translator V4 is the winner of the 2023 edition of our ranking. It’s also the most advanced device currently on the market. Similarly to Vasco Translator M3, it includes a variety of cutting-edge features (voice, photo, and group chat translation), but it also gives users something beyond the translation capabilities. Vasco Translator V4 is resistant to shocks, dust, and splashes of water and has an ergonomic 5-inch screen. The language list of this universal translator is also significantly bigger. Free lifetime Internet for translations is available too.
