This dataset contains fluent English reference translations re-written with disfluencies removed for the LDC Fisher Spanish dataset. They were collected via Mechanical Turk using the original disfluent translations. It complements the original LDC Fisher audio and transcripts, and translations collected by JHU, creating a parallel disfluent/fluent corpus to promote further research in producing fluent output from disfluent data.

The ids/ directory contains the data with prepended utterance ids and files containing the id lists.

The noids/ directory contains the text only.

The utterances ids and mappings correspond to those created for the original English translations. The submodule fisher-mapping maps Fisher speech features to match these translation ids. Please see here for more information.
