“Statistical Phrase-Based Speech Translation” by L. Mathias and W. Byrne. In IEEE Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing, 2006.


A generative statistical model of speech-to-text translation is developed as an extension of existing models of phrase-based text translation. Speech is translated by mapping ASR word lattices to lattices of phrase sequences which are then translated using operations developed for text translation. Performance is reported on Chinese to English translation of Mandarin Broadcast News.
