This paper describes research activities of ETRI in multi-lingual spontaneous speech translation. We have developed Korean-to-English, Korean-to-Japanese speech translation system prototype that includes 5,000 word spontaneous Korean speech recognizer, Korean-English and Korean-Japanese translators, and Korean speech synthesizer with spontaneous prosody in the travel planning task. We utilize multimedia communication to increase the performance of the spoken language translation system.
