The aim of this work is to show the abil- ity of finite-state transducers to simultane- ously translate speech into multiple lan- guages. Our proposal deals with an ex- tension of stochastic finite-state transduc- ers that can produce more than one out- put at the same time. These kind of de- vices offer great versatility for the inte- gration with other finite-state devices such as acoustic models in order to produce a speech translation system. This proposal has been evaluated in a practical situation, and its results have been compared with those obtained using a standard mono- target speech transducer.
