Basic Default Training Parameters for Language Translation

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.

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

And what about RNN? has default parameters, can it be considered as recommended for start?
