Lexical constraints at translation request time?

(Etienne Monneret) #1

I read your documentation, and, as far as I properly understand it, the lexical constraints can only be provided at the ONMT server starting time. Right ? Is it possible to send a list of lexical constraints with a sentence to be translated ?

I think it would be a nice indirect way to solve this request:

We are working on improving the API to this feature, so that we can dynamically send additional lexical constraints. keep tuned.

The predictive translation is far simpler than lexical beam search - we should do it too…

Excellent !

Until that happens I have introduced a Custom Dictionary feature in our MT Gateway (client) so that the user can force a particular translation. The Network seems to handle these translations acceptably in the case of nouns & noun phrases, which are usually what need to be “pre-translated” in our particular use cases.
