I did contact the authors and they say that they have got the reported results using the same configuration that I am currently using with OpenNMT. But still somehow I get the below type of output for test data.
SOS in 2010 , beyonc was featured on lady gaga 's single
telephone ' ' and its music video . EOS
SOS the song topped the us pop songs chart , becoming the sixth number-one for both beyonc and gaga , tying them with mariah carey for most number-ones since the nielsen top 40 airplay chart launched in 1992 . EOS

Can you suggest why the model's state is getting fixed and the output being generated is always almost same.
Little bit about the architecture that I am using.
2 layers for each encoder and decoder with hidden state size 600. I've been using SGD, pre-trained embeddings with fixed learning and global attention model. I am training the whole for 12-15 epochs. Below is the configuration in detail.
