Any body know what the following signs "@" mean? I couldnt find its definition in the phone list:

TRANSLATE [TRANSLATE] t r @ n s l e t
TRANSLATE [TRANSLATE] t+r t-r+@ r-@+n @-n+s n-s+l s-l+e l-e+t e-t

It is just an example of what a phone may be. 

The speech rec engine does not care what character you might use to represent a phone, but since it is so time consuming to create your own pronunciation dictionary, you use the phoneset from some prexisting pronunciation dictionary. 

It's been a while, but I am assuming that @ was a phone in a non-VoxForge pronunciation dictionary that might correspond to something like AE in the current Voxforge pronunciation dict.
