Automatic translation from parallel speech: Simultaneous interpretation as MT training data

Matthias Paulik, Alex Waibel
2009 2009 IEEE Workshop on Automatic Speech Recognition & Understanding  
We propose an alternative to parallel text as machine translation (MT) training data; audio recordings of parallel speech (pSp) as it occurs in any scenario where interpreters are involved.  ...  Although interpretation (pSp) differs significantly from translation (parallel text), we achieve surprisingly strong translation results with our pSp-trained MT and speech translation systems.  ...  This enabled us to build MT systems and speech translation systems from simultaneous interpretation, thus eliminating the need for a manually created text corpus of sentenced aligned translations.  ...
