Verbmobil is the result of eight years of intensive research in a
large speech-to-speech translation project, executed by a consortium
comprising nineteen academic and four industrial partners. The system
that was developed by more than 100 researchers and engineers handles
dialogs in three business-oriented domains, with translation between
three languages: German, English, and Japanese. Verbmobil deals with
spontaneous speech, which includes realistic repair phenomena, and
uses deep semantic analysis to recognize a speaker's slips and to
translate what he tried to say rather than what he actually said.
This book gives the first comprehensive overview of the results of
this unique and seminal project in human language technology.
Contributions by leading scientists in speech and language technology
look at the component technologies that make Verbmobil the most
advanced speech-to-speech translation system worldwide and a landmark
project in the history of natural language processing.
Written for: Scientists and practitioners as well as students and
