We describe an open-source implementation of minimum error rate training (MERT) for statistical machine translation (SMT). This was implemented within the Moses toolkit, although it is essentially standsalone, with the aim of replacing the existing implementation with a cleaner, more flexible design, in order to facilitate further research in weight… (More)
This paper describes an initial version of a general purpose French/English statistical machine translation system. The main features of this system are the open-source Moses de-coder, the integration of a bilingual dictionary and a continuous space target language model. We analyze the performance of this system on the test data of the WMT'08 evaluation.
