We present new methods and resources which have been used to create a text to speech (TTS) synthesis system for the Luxembourgish language. The system uses the MaryTTS platform, which is extended with new natural language processing (NLP) components. We designed and recorded a multilingual, phonetically balanced speech corpus, and used it to build a new Luxembourgish synthesis voice. All speech data and software has been published under an open-source license and is freely available online.
