Speech-to-speech translation

A first prototype of a speech-to-speech machine translation system is being built in our laboratory. David Ellis, a visitor in our lab, was demonstrating the first results yesterday. Especially translation results from Finnish to English were promising. The current system deals with biblical language due to the availability of necessary resources, including a parallel corpus of spoken language.

Dr. Mikko Kurimo (on the left), David Ellis and
Dr. Mathias Creutz pleased with the results.
