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” of 2014 when the video was recorded. Slate Desktop™ uses newer best practices based on lessons learned since this video was created.
