This paper describes the submission to IWSLT 2019 End- to-End speech translation task by Samsung R&D Institute, Poland. We decided to focus on end-to-end English to German TED lectures translation and did not provide any submission for other speech tasks. We used a slightly altered Transformer architecture with standard convolutional layer preparing the audio input to Transformer en- coder. Additionally, we propose an audio segmentation al- gorithm maximizing BLEU score on tst2015 test set.
