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!

you need to use one of the many translation APIs provided by google Tranlation API Set.

for playing the converted text, here is another of google's tools:-
