The Compadre® Suite

SpeechGear's Award Winning Compadre Product Suite


Instant Translation. Anytime. Anywhere.

SpeechGear's Compadre product suite removes the language barrier. With Compadre you can instantly communicate with others even when you do not share a common language. Each product within the Compadre suite targets a specific mode of communication, letting you instantly translate whatever you say, hear, read, write or type. From enterprise-wide deployments, to personal use, select one or a combination of the products to create your own instant translation solution.

A Complete Language Translation Solution

The Compadre product suite includes four bi-directional modules that can be used independently or merged in any combination to meet your communication needs.


Compadre:Composer® is the powerful engine that runs the entire Compadre suite. This is the module that generates your translations. With the included ComposerEditor feature, you can easily enter new terms and phrases to your translation database, do it once and all your Compadre Modules are automatically updated.



Compadre:Interact® provides simultaneous spoken translations of conversations - as you speak to the system, it repeats what you are saying in a different language and generates a transcript of the conversation. It's that simple, just speak and you will hear the translation. No interpreter, dictionaries, or being constrained to a limited number of phrases. No "click a button, say a phrase, click another button, wait for the translation", with Interact you just speak and as you are talking you will hear the translation being spoken. In addition to speech, Interact also instantly translates whatever you type or, with a Tablet PC, whatever you write.



Compadre:Document® generates quick and accurate translations of PowerPoint presentations, Word documents and PDF files. If you want a quick overview of the document, or if you need a complete and accurate translation ready for distribution and presentation – Document is your solution. When it is time to give the presentation, use DocumentViewer to simultaneously show the original document along with your translated versions.



Compadre:Interpreter® brings instant translation to your Microsoft Window's Mobile cellular telephone. download the software, install it on your cellphone, and you're ready to go. If you prefer, you can also purchase SpeechGear's Communicator palm computer that comes preloaded with Interpreter. In both cases, with Interpreter's PhraseBuilder™ features, you are no longer limited to using words or phrases that someone else has entered into the system. Now you can easily translate phrases that say what you want to say. Enter a phrase, hear the translation, and see it typed out. It's that simple.
