In this work we describe the development and evaluation of SpeeData, a prototype for multilingual spoken data-entry. The SpeeData project aims at developing a demonstrator that provides a user-friendly interface for spoken data-entry in two languages: Italian and German. A real world application domain is considered, which is the Land Register of an Italian region in which both languages are officially spoken. Original topics of this paper are the interaction modality for spoken data-entry, the evaluation of a data-entry system, bilingual speech recognition, bilingual speaker adaptation.
