In this paper we describe the RTTS system for enterprise-level real time speech recognition and translation. RTTS follows a Web Service-based approach which allows the encapsulation of ASR and MT Technology components thus hiding the configuration and tuning complexities and details from the client applications while exposing a uniform interface. In this way, RTTS is capable of easily supporting a wide variety of client applications. The clients we have implemented include a VoIP-based real time speech-to-speech translation system, a chat and Instant Messaging translation System, a Transcription Server, among others.
