Abstract

This paper describes our recent work in developing multilingual spoken language systems that support human-computer interactions. Our approach is based on the premise that a common semantic representation can be extracted from the input for all languages, at least within the context of restricted domains. In our design of such systems, language dependent information is separated from the system kernel as much as possible, and encoded in external data structures. The internal system manager, discourse and dialogue component, and database are all maintained in a language transparent form. Our description will focus on the development of the multilingual MIT Voyager spoken language system, which can engage in verbal dialogues with users about a geographical region within Cambridge, MA in the USA. The system can provide informationabout distances, travel times or directions between objects located within this area (e.g., restaurants, hotels, banks, libraries), as wellas information such as the addresses, telephone numbers or location of the objects themselves. Voyager has been fully ported to Japanese and Italian, and we are in the process of porting to French and German as well. Evaluations for the English, Japanese and Italian systems are reported. Other related multilingual research activities are also briefly mentioned.
