Finite-state transducer inference for a speech-input Portuguese-to-English machine translation system

David Picó, Jorge González, Francisco Casacuberta, Diamantino Caseiro, Isabel Trancoso

Statistical techniques and grammatical inference have been used for dealing with automatic speech recognition with success, and can also be used for speech-to-speech machine translation. In this paper, new advances on a method for finite-state transducer inference are presented. This method has been tested experimentally in a speech-input translation task using a recognizer that allows a flexible use of models by means of efficient algorithms for on-the-fly transducer composition. These are the first reported results of a speech-to-speech translation task involving European Portuguese input that we know of.
