This paper presents the status of the NESPOLE! data collection as of end of February, 2001. A multilingual VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol networks) database consisting of 200 dialogues in 4 languages (English, German, Italian and French) was recorded and transcribed. Dialogue speakers were connected via a H323 video-conferencing terminal. We describe the task, the technical architecture, the recording procedure and the transcription process of the NESPOLE! data collection. We provide some statistics concerning the data and, finally, we address problems that arose during the collection and annotation process.
