- Word alignment is the process of determining which words in a given source and target language sentence pair are translations of each other. This is a token level task, meaning that each word (token) in the source text is aligned with its corresponding translation in the target text. In this work, we explored the IBM models introduced by Brown, et al. 2003.
- While researching different aspects of word alignment, I read and used the software package GIZA++ written by Franz Och. Below is a presentation and a supplement readme that I created for our NLP Group to help explain how to use GIZA++.
