ELITR — European Live Translator, was an EU funded project for live speech translation research and innovation in which a platform for speech translation of live events was developed. Currently, in 2023, we use the ELITR platform with Whisper model for transcription in translation into English. We adapted it for real-time mode with Whisper-Streaming.
