STKU-10 – ¿Listo? Are You Ready? Challenges in Designing and Deploying Bilingual English/Spanish Applications for the U.S.
1:30 p.m - 4:30 p.m
Sondra Ahlén, Principal VUI Consultant/Owner - SAVIC

The design and deployment of a bilingual speech application in the U.S. presents many challenges: defining business goals and user needs; incorporating cultural, political, and linguistic knowledge; and handling technical aspects such as special characters and language-specific acoustic models. This workshop is designed to provide a fun collaborative role-play setting for exploring some of the key challenges encountered when deploying an English/Spanish application for the U.S. Participants from various backgrounds and levels of expertise will complement each other, as teams work toward solving a series of mini-challenges along the course of a simulated project life cycle. Beginners to bilingual applications will learn a breadth of new information, while veterans can augment their skills by sharing their own experience, taking on new roles, and exploring less-familiar project phases. Knowledge of Spanish is welcome but not required.
