Abstract

For speech translation to be practical and useful, speech translation systems should be portable to multiple languages without substantial modification. We present the results of expanding the English-based JANUS speech translation system [1] to translate from spoken German sentences to English and Japanese utterances. We also report the results of implementing part of the LPNN speech recognition module on a massively parallel machine. The JANUS approach generalizes well, with overall system performance of 97%. This surpasses English-based JANUS performance.
