For more than 25 years our lab is doing research in the field of speech technology. In 1991 we presented the first speech-to-speech-translation system in Europe and the US, JANUS. One year later C-STAR (Consortium for Speech Translation Advanced Research) was founded and in 1993 the first speech translation system for spontaneous requests was developed. Another milestone was the first prototype of a mobile translation system for traveling in 2000 and three years later the first domain unlimited speech translation system. In 2005 we presented the first simultaneous translation system for lectures in real time. In 2007 our speech-to-speech translation was used for the first time in humanitarian operations and in 2009 the first commercial App for speech-to-speech translation on a mobile device became available. In June 2013 we presented the simultaneous translation service for university lectures (German into English).
We have also presented our work in numerous lectures, presentations or key notes - we have put some online here.
