Hi Everyone,

I am working on neural machine translation of English to Asian languages.

I have a question:

  • Can we apply machine transliteration in OpenNMT ? if yes, is there any tutorial or document ?

Hi,

Sure, just make sure the words you want to transliterate are correctly transliterated in your training data.

Thanks guillaumenkln for feedback.

Can you please provide a sample sentence. ?
I just want to know about the format of the transliteration in training data.

There is no specific format. If your parallel sentences contain transliterations, the model will learn to translate and transliterate.
