Kay, Martin, Jean Mark Gawron, and Peter Norvig VERBMOBIL: A
TRANSLATION SYSTEM FOR FACE-TO-FACE DIALOG
 CSLI Publications 1994 viii, 235 pp. Natural Language Processing

The "Verbmobil" system would input speech in a source language
dialogue, translate it, and output synthesized speech in a target
language, all in real time under the conditions of face-to-face
dialogue. This book is an assessment of the state of the art of the
speech recognition and machine translation fields, and a frank
discussion of the challenges the developers of such a system face.
