University lecture translation

The lecture translator combines the technologies of automatic speech recognition and statistical machine translation into an integrated speech translation system. Auxiliary components structure the text, deal with punctuation, treat German compound words, record the lecture, and display the translation result. The service is realized through the EU-BRIDGE service infrastructure.

Automatic simultaneous translation of lectures

The system translates lectures simultaneously in real time from German into English. The service is installed at several lecture halls at KIT and is in daily use providing a simultaneous speech transcription and translation service to KIT’s students.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no 287658
