This paper presents the integration of a speech-to-speech translation service into a Telegram bot as a part of the EU funded INGENIOUS project. The bot is thought as a multilingual communication channel where First Responders talk in their own language and receive other’s messages in English. The Speech-to-Speech translation system is currently being adapted to the emergency domains, so it will correctly deal with emergency codes and geographical data.
