Selling as-is, no AC Adapter, super clean, and in my opinion a bit rare as I don't recall ever seeing these for sale any place. You find Magic Sacs and Spectre 128s and Spectre GCRs, but Translator One.... I have not.

What can I tell you about mine... well I purchased a whole bunch of Atari ST goods in a bulk buy years and years ago and to date, every single item has worked, so good chance this Translator One will too.

As I have no AC Adapter for it, I am selling as-is. $75 plus shipping.

What this device was supposed to do was allow Mac disks to be readable on Atari systems, so when used with a Gadgets by Small Spectre (non GCR model) Mac emulators, you could use Mac disks.

Appears to work via the Midi and Floppy ports as in one of the pictures, you will see them.

Includes just the unit as pictured, super clean. Maybe a collector will like this for their collection or someone has a need for one.

If $75 is too steep, I may accept offers after I let the sale run a little bit.

Thanks for looking! I am in USA so prefer USA only shipping for now but may be able to send international but shipping will not be cheap to do so.

Do you have any photos of the internals? Top and bottom of board if possible?

And you wouldn't be able to slide off the cover to take some?

Sorry no, that is not something I feel I should be doing on something being posted for sale. That way if someone is looking to buy it, feel more comfortable I have not been playing around inside of it possibly causing damage taking pictures on both sides as you asked.

That is a cool find.

I would jump in but have 3 Spectre GCR's somewhere.
