Verbmobil

Verbmobil was a long-term project of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Technology (BMBF/DLR). Its aim was to give Germany a top international position in language technology and its economical application in the next millenium by cooperation and concentration of as many specialists as possible from industry and science.

The long-sighted aim reached, was the development of a mobile translation system for the translation of spontaneous speech in face-to-face situations.
