Overview

ModernMT (MMT) is a context-aware, incremental and distributed general purpose Machine Translation technology. MMT is being developed as a European Union funded open-source project. You can find more information on the project at [http://www.modernmt.eu]

The MMT system can be used to develop and host your own engines that can be used in your translation pipeline. This connector uses the REST API [here] to allow you to translate using an engine hosted on an MMT instance.

Before using the connector you must have started an engine in MMT using:

./mmt start

or

./mmt start -e <engine_name>

Using the Connector

In Rainbow, the connector can be accessed through the Leveraging Step. It can also be called programatically.
