International Workshop on Spoken Language Translation (IWSLT) 2004
Keihanna Science City, Kyoto, Japan
It is important to evaluate Spoken Dialogue Translation Systems, but as we show by analyzing evaluation methods in the Verbmobil, C-STAR II, and the Nespole! projects, the current state of the art is not fully satisfactory. Subjective methods are too costly, and objective methods, although cheaper, don't give good indications about usability. We propose some ideas to improve that situation.
