Free Toolkit for Syntax-driven Statistical Machine Translation (29 November 2005)
The 2005 JHU Language Engineering Workshop has released a free toolkit for syntax-driven statistical machine translation (SMT), which is also known as 'translation by parsing'. The GenPar Toolkit is intended to serve as a springboard for research. Its modular design makes it also useful for educational purposes.

GenPar features:

These prototypes are certainly not state-of-the-art (yet). However, they are complete, in the sense that no additional software is required to build an MT system, apply it to new input, and automatically evaluate the results. These prototypes can also serve as blueprints/templates for other language pairs.

GenPar is downloadable from here.

The accompanying 'MTV' tool for visualising tree-structured alignments is downloadable from here.

A report outlining the context in which these tools were created is available here

Researchers at several institutions are actively developing GenPar and MTV. We welcome inquiries from potential contributors and collaborators. Of course, we also welcome feedback from users.
