Abstract

An approach towards the tighter coupling of statically based speech translation was discussed. Multiple layers of reduction and transformation were used by cascading several stochastic source-channel models. The It was observed that end-to-end performance can be improved if the interlingua language is enriched with additional linguistic information. The result of translation suggested that MT systems can be successfully constructed for any language pair by cascading multiple MT systems via english.
