TLP: The transLectures-UPV Platform

The transLectures-UPV Platform (TLP) is an open source (Apache License 2.0), self-contained piece of software that includes everything that is needed in order to integrate transcription, translation and speech synthesis technologies into large media repositories, MOOC platforms and/or websites (for localisation purposes). Its main components are the Database, Web Service, Ingest Service, Media Player, Transcription Editor, Text Translation Editor and Website Translation Plugin+Editor.

TLP is the basis of the poli[Trans] service, an online platform for automated and assisted multilingual media subtitling offered by the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) and its Information and Communication Systems Service (ASIC), where all the underlying Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Machine Translation (MT) and Text-to-Speech (TTS) systems are 100% developed by the MLLP.


The latest TLP version, released in December 2017, is 3.6.0 (see Changelog):
