The development of accurate machine translation systems requires detailed analyses of the recurring translation mistakes. However, the manual inspection of the decoder log files is a daunting task because of their sheer size and their uncomfortable format, in which the relevant data is widely spread. For all major platforms, DIMwid offers a graphical user interface that allows the quick inspection of the decoder stacks or chart cells for a given span in a uniform way. Currently, DIMwid can process the decoder log files of the phrase-based stack decoder and the syntax-based chart decoder inside the Moses framework.
