ITC-IRST, Povo, Trento, Italy

In this paper the research issues and approach to the spoken translation problem will be presented and discussed in the framework of new opportunities offered to multilingual person to person communication on the Web. New challenges arise in the research paradigm due to the availability of huge multimedia content that can be used in the communication process. The NESPOLE! project, a common EU NSF funded project exploring future applications in the e-commerce and e-service sectors, will also be presented and discussed.
