Abstract / Description of output

The SIWIS project aims to investigate spoken language translation, where both the speaker characteristics and prosody are translated. This means the translation carries not only spoken content, but also speaker identification, emotion and intent. We describe the background of the project, and present some initial approaches and results. These include the design and collection of a Swiss bilingual database that both enables research in Swiss accented speech processing, and facilitates reliable evaluation.
