Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9923837A2] An intelligent network has connected telephone sets (1), line exchanges (3) and service switching points (7). The service switching points (7) are controlled by a service control point in order to provide automatic translation of conversation between two connected persons or telephone sets (1) using different languages so that a dialogue can be performed between the two telephone sets, a powerful computer (19) is connected to two pairs of ordinary input and output ports of a switching point (7). The computer (19) executes the translation and generates automatically synthetic, translated speech in both directions. A call wanting a translation service is in the switching point (7) routed through the computer (19), the service being called by making suitable dialling depressions on the telephone set (1).
