Abstract

Moisés Pastor-i-Gadea, Alberto Sanchis, Francisco Casacuberta, Enrique Vidal. EuTrans: Speech to Speech Translator Prototype. Proc. of Spanish Symposium on Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis, 2001.

EuTrans is a telephone speech input translation prototype capable of translating telephone calls from one language to another. It assumes a human to human communication, each one speaking a different language, assisted by a system with translation capabilities. The prototype has been developed as a demonstrator for the European project with the same name. EuTrans achieves a response time close to real time for medium complexity tasks (a few thousand words), speaker independent and offers competitive accuracy. It needs a standard PC with audio capability and a cheap modem. The system is currently available for two translation tasks: FUB task (Italian-English) and Traveler task (Spanish-English).
