Vacations often sound great but when it comes to venturing to new and exciting places, many of us are hesitant because we only speak our native language. That shouldn't stop you from venturing abroad, of course, especially for winter travel.

And one way to beat the language barrier is with some help from the ONE Mini Pocket Multilingual Assistant, which can translate and transcribe 12 different languages in real-time with the help of AI translation technology and live interpreter services. And right now, you can get it for $59, or 40 percent off its typical price.
