Interacting with the Masakhane Benchmark Models

I created this demo for very easy interaction with the benchmark models on Masakhane which were trained with JoeyNMT(my forked version).

To include your language, all you need to do is:

  1. Create a folder in the format src-tgt/main for your language pair, if it does not exist.
  2. Inside the main folder put the following files:
    1. model checkpoint. Rename it to best.ckpt.
    2. config.yaml file. This is the JoeyNMT config file which loads the model an pre-processing parameters.
    3. src_vocab.txt file.
    4. trg_vocab.txt file.
