Heading: POCKET TRANSLATOR TO OPEN OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHINESE TRAVEL Posted On: 15 January, 2018

Travellers from mainland China took more than 62 million outbound trips in the first half of 2017 with an increase in preference for self-guided tours, as per the China Tourism Academy. Existing forecasts suggest that Chinese outbound tourism will grow to 200 million trips by 2020, with overseas travel spend to hit US$429 billion the following year.

With that in mind, Chinese online travel agency Ctrip joined forces with Internet and voice recognition giant Baidu to launch a new pocket translation device for use by Chinese tourists travelling overseas. The handy gadget connects to the internet through an embedded SIM card that can work in more than 80 countries and regions, and also doubles as a portable WiFi hotspot.
