A person asked me for assistance in finding a suitable translation tool. She is going to work in a company located in a country whose language she doesn't speak. Now she is looking for some device or software or both which helps her communicate. Such a device must be able to process English, German and Finnish in all directions. Can anyone make recommendations in this regard?

Many thanks.

She can use Google Translate Aug 28, 2014

if she just wants to have a vague idea what things mean. If she needs any serious documents translated, she may need alive translators--probably more than one.
