Facebook NMT: Setting up a Neural Machine Translation System Training Course

Course Code

facebooknmt

Duration

7 hours (usually 1 day including breaks)

Requirements

  • Some programming experience is helpful
  • Basic understanding of neural networks
  • Experience using the command line

Overview

Fairseq is an open-source sequence-to-sequence learning toolkit created by Facebok for use in Neural Machine Translation (NMT).

In this training participants will learn how to use Fairseq to carry out translation of sample content.

By the end of this training, participants will have the knowledge and practice needed to implement a live Fairseq based machine translation solution.

Audience

  • Localization specialists with a technical background
  • Global content managers
  • Localization engineers
  • Software developers in charge of implementing global content solutions

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, heavy hands-on practice

Note

  • If you wish to use specific source and target language content, please contact us to arrange.
