As the "super connector" in one of the world's most dynamic trading regions, Hong Kong is speeding up the development of innovative technologies in line with the launch of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Railway link and the opening of the mega Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.

"Global Sources trade fairs are leveraging the strengths to attract more buyers and entrepreneurs with new ideas from across the world," said Song Ping, deputy editor-in-chief of China Daily Hong Kong, at the awards ceremony.

Awards for the "Most Promising Electronic Gadgets" went to the Pocket Travel Companion translator by Beijing Babel Technology Co; the AI Filming Robot by Taro Technology Incorporated; the Gaming Rugged Smartphone by Shenzhen Doogee Hengtong Technology; the 3D Mobile Phone Screen Cover by Kangde Xin Composite Material; and the Digital Ionzyme Face Mask by August 10 Co.

With the Pocket Travel Companion-JoneR Translator, users can enjoy multilingual translation, Wi-Fi and audio guide services in one device, said Xie Yanshun, marketing director of Beijing Babel Technology.

"According to market research, the three main problems for travelers are language barriers, inconvenient internet connections and a lack of knowledge of tourism sites. So, our goal is to use one device to cope with all these challenges and provide tourists with smooth overseas travel experience," said Xie.

The portable translator now supports voice translation for 45 languages and 57 dialects, with the accuracy rate of Chinese and English translations reaching as high as 97 percent. The device is now available on the Chinese mainland, and in Hong Kong, Europe, North America, Japan and South Korea.

Xie expects the device to be exported to more countries and regions.
