Mobile Speech Translation for Multilingual Requirements Meetings: A Preliminary Study

Fabio Calefato, Filippo Lanubile, Damiano Romita, Rafael Prikladnicki, Joao Henrique Stocker Pinto
2014 2014 IEEE 9th International Conference on Global Software Engineering  
Communication in global software projects usually occurs between native and non-native English speakers with the drawback of an unequal ability to fully understand and contribute to discussions.  ...  In this paper, we investigate the adoption of combining speech recognition and machine translation in order to overcome language barriers among stakeholders who are remotely negotiating software requirements  ...  of participating in projects meetings also when on the move.  ...

Machine translation status and its effect on business

2020 Journal of the ACS Advances in Computer Science  
The globe has become like a town which is inhibited by people speaking more than two thousands languages. The role of Machine Translation (MT) became essential.  ...  Furthermore, Pros and Cons of using MT in business and the current challenges are explained. The main MT systems involving Arabic language are presented and the need for post-editing is recognized.  ...  However; the use of syntactic information may have a negative impact on the speed of translation because of the large number of rules, especially when syntax labels are projected from a parser in syntax-augmented  ...

Difficulties in establishing common ground in multiparty groups using machine translation

Naomi Yamashita, Rieko Inaba, Hideaki Kuzuoka, Toru Ishida
2009 Proceedings of the 27th international conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI 09  
This study investigates the difficulties of constructing common ground when multiparty groups (consisting of more than two language communities) communicate using machine translation.  ...  Consequently, our study suggests the importance of not only grounding between speaker and addressee but also grounding between addressees in constructing effective machine-translation-mediated communication  ...  The authors would like to thank the Language Grid Project members, particularly Tomohiro Shigenobu for letting us use the multilingual chat system.  ...
