Youdao | Red Dot Design Award

Back Download

This robust, adaptive translation device was designed as an easy-to-use tool to enable users to effectively communicate in a foreign language while on a vacation or business trip. The oval shape, compact size and reduced weight ensure that the Youdao rests safely and comfortably in the hand. Thanks to the integration of two microphones, the user need not focus on the speech direction. Word-search and language-learning functionality helps to facilitate the early stages of learning a new language and rounds off the overall concept.

Statement by the Jury

The Youdao mobile translator proves to be a very practical companion, thus considerably simplifying communication abroad with a range of technical refinements.
