Speech translation has recently become an increasingly popular topic of research, partly due to the development of benchmark datasets. Nevertheless, current datasets cover a limited number of languages.

Data sanity checks provide evidence about the quality of the data, which is released under CC0 license. We also provide extensive speech recognition, bilingual and multilingual machine translation and speech translation baselines with open-source implementation.
