This unique Visual Language Translator contains point-to-pictures content specifically developed for urgent situations where a traveler may become separated from a group or otherwise find themselves in unfamiliar territory--whether hostile or friendly. Easy-to-understand pictures and symbols help communicate current situation, request help, locate shelter, get first aid assistance and acquire basic needs, as well as identifying danger, navigating terrain, finding transport and locating communication devices to regain familiar contact--all by pointing to pictures. It also contains personal safety reference guidelines for "what to do" to be inconspicuous and improve personal conditions in the initial moments of a confusing situation. An essential tool for anyone that may be touring a foreign country outside well-traveled tourist areas where assistance is relatively easy to obtain.

Alan Stillman, the founder and CEO of Kwikpoint, developed the Kwikpoint concept on a 15,000 mile around-the-world bicycle trip. While in Hungary,he cut out magazine pictures to communicate his dinner selections. From that simple concept grew a communication device that spans continents and dialects with ease. Alan and a team of six designers consulted linguists and members of the diplomatic community to create universally understood icons. The simple device replaces pounds-or kilos-of language dictionaries and phrase books.
