Sulis: An Open Source Transfer Decoder for Deep Syntactic Statistical Machine Translation
In this paper, we describe an open source transfer decoder for Deep Syntactic Transfer-Based Statistical Machine Translation. Transfer decoding involves the application of transfer rules to a SL structure. The N-best TL structures are found via a beam search of TL hypothesis structures which are ranked via a log-linear combination of feature scores, such as translation model and dependency-based language model.
