French translation:Un point de vente électronique portatif pour carte à puce et à bande magnétique.
Explanation:
A mag stripe card is translated into = une carte à bande magnétique while a smart card is a chip enabled card which translates into = une carte à puce. "EPOS" is the acronym for an Electronic Point of Sale terminal. When they refer to mobile, it is likely that they mean that it is "portable" and is battery operated as opposed to requiring an electric power source. In the transit smart card industry, this equipment is referred to as "portable ticket issuers or validators".

Explanation:
What I found in my Routledge technical dictionary:
EPoS=point de vente electronique
stripe=bande magnetique (mag- could be magnetic)
smart card=carte a memoire

I hope this will help!
