VIP

Voice-text integrated system for interpreters

Ref. no. FFI2016-75831-P


Interpreting is an extremely strenuous task, since they must devote much effort in terms of decoding, memorising and encoding a message. Interpreters should, as translators and other language professionals do, benefit from the development of technology and, thereby, enjoy considerable improvement of their working conditions.

Unlike translators, for whom a myriad of computer-assisted tools are available, interpreters have not benefited from the same level of automation or innovation. The goal of the VIP project is to develop a web portal 2.0 with resources and computer-assisted interpreting tools intended to cover interpreter’s needs.
