An interactive assistant, referred to herein as “an interactive assistant,” “a virtual assistant,” or simply “an assistant,” may be configured to receive a compound task request. A compound task request is a single request to perform multiple (i.e., more than one) tasks. The compound task request may be in the form of a single spoken phrase. The interactive assistance may receive the spoken phrase, determine that the spoken phrase contains a request to perform multiple actions, and perform all of the actions requested by the spoken phrase. For example, the compound task request may be a request to translate a message (e.g., word, phrase, sentence, paragraph, document, etc.) from a source language to a target language and to send the translated message in the target language to a recipient.
