Docent - Document-level SMT

Intro: Docent is a decoder for phrase-based Statistical Machine Translation (SMT). Unlike most existing SMT decoders, it treats complete documents, rather than single sentences, as translation units and permits the inclusion of features with cross-sentence dependencies to facilitate the development of discourse-level models for SMT. Docent implements the local search decoding approach described by Hardmeier et al. (EMNLP 2012).
