This paper describes pycdec, a Python module for the cdec decoder. It enables Python code to use cdec’s fast C++ implementation of core finite-state and context-free inference algorithms for decoding and alignment. The high-level interface allows developers to build integrated MT applications that take advantage of the rich Python ecosystem without sacrificing computational performance. We give examples of how to interact directly with the main cdec data structures (lattices, hypergraphs… CONTINUE READING
