Hjerson: An Open Source Tool for Automatic Error Classification of Machine Translation Output

Hjerson: An Open Source Tool for Automatic Error Classification of Machine Translation Output

We describe Hjerson, a tool for automatic classification of errors in machine translation output. The tool features the detection of five word level error classes: morphological errors, reodering errors, missing words, extra words and lexical errors. As input, the tool requires original full form reference translation(s) and hypothesis along with their corresponding base forms. It is also possible to use additional information on the word level (e.g. pos tags) in order to obtain more details. The tool provides the raw count and the normalised score (error rate) for each error class at the document level and at the sentence level, as well as original reference and hypothesis words labelled with the corresponding error class in text and html formats.

DELiC4MT: A Tool for Diagnostic MT Evaluation over User-defined Linguistic Phenomena

DELiC4MT: A Tool for Diagnostic MT Evaluation over User-defined Linguistic Phenomena

This paper demonstrates DELiC4MT, a piece of software that allows the user to perform diagnostic evaluation of machine translation systems over linguistic checkpoints, i.e., source-language lexical elements and grammatical constructions specified by the user. Our integrated tool builds upon best practices, software components and formats developed under different projects and initiatives, focusing on enabling easy adaptation to any language pair and linguistic phenomenon. We provide a description of the different modules that make up the tool, introduce a web demo and present a step-by-step case study of how it can be applied to a specific language pair and linguistic phenomenon.

Z-MERT: A Fully Configurable Open Source Tool for Minimum Error Rate Training of Machine Translation Systems

Z-MERT: A Fully Configurable Open Source Tool for Minimum Error Rate Training of Machine Translation Systems

We introduce Z-MERT, a software tool for minimum error rate training of machine translation systems (Och, 2003). In addition to being an open source tool that is extremely easy to compile and run, Z-MERT is also agnostic regarding the evaluation metric, fully configurable, and requires no modification to work with any decoder. We describe Z-MERT and review its features, and report the results of a series of experiments that examine the tool's runtime. We establish that Z-MERT is extremely efficient, making it well-suited for time-sensitive pipelines. The experiments also provide an insight into the tool's runtime in terms of several variables (size of the development set, size of produced N-best lists, etc).
