OpenNMT

Some Basic Queries

Hello Everyone,

I am working on machine translation of English-Urdu. I have some queries for better understanding of OpenNMT translation engine.

  • How does the morph folder and all files inside it in openNMT-py/data/morph/ effect the quality of tranlsation ? How to get/generate these files for your corpus ?

  • For training parameters, encoder-encoder has different types. Is there any default parameter settings for rnn, brnn, cnn & mean as suggested for transformer in http://opennmt.net/OpenNMT-py/FAQ.html#how-do-i-use-the-transformer-model-do-you-support-multi-gpu

  • Are files test_model.src & test_model.tgt auto-generated ? What is purpose of these files?

Thanks,
Usman
