Can anyone confirm that "Statistical Machine Translation" is the proper route to take if I want to translate data of one language into another language for an AI system that reads text and turns it into speech?

To be a bit more clear:  
I am working with a technology that if the user types a question into a text-box, the computer will respond via speech (TTS).  I would like for a user to type the Spanish questions and the AI will respond verbally in Spanish too.  Currently, the entire system is in English.

Thanks for any input!
