Baidu's talking translator gives tourists a hand

Portable device to be introduced first in China

Baidu's compact translator also serves as a portable Wi-Fi router.

BEIJING -- Baidu, China's search engine giant, will roll out a portable translation device that can listen and speak in several languages, targeting Chinese tourists traveling overseas.

Users simply need to talk to the device while pressing a button, and it will instantly come up with a translation in languages such as Chinese, Japanese and English. To decipher the speaker's words, the machine accesses deep learning and other technologies via the internet.
