Basic Default Training Parameters for Language Translation


(Erik Chan) #1

What are some default parameters to use as a baseline for language translation?

I am just getting started, I realize testing different parameters is important to learning. But considering how long it takes to train a model, it would be helpful if someone can provide a basic “these are the main variables/parameters to consider” for someone who is just getting started.

Thanks!

This command line for training a Transformer model with OpenNMT-py can be helpful:
