Bulk Translation and MT System Optimization

This screencast uses the Moses SMT system trained earlier to bulk translate a set of test data for which the BLEU score is calculated based on the available reference translations. In the second part of the screencast the trained Moses system is optimized for lower memory use and translation speed.

This video shows the required steps to use Slate Toolkit™. It was recorded on a Linux machine. The same steps work in a Command Prompt or PowerShell terminal on MS Windows. Slate Desktop™‘s user-friendly graphical user interface replaces terminal commands.

The presenter talks about “best practices” when the video was recorded in 2014. Slate Desktop™ uses updated best practices based on lessons learned through the intervening years.
