We present the new THOT toolkit for fully- automatic and interactive statistical ma- chine translation (SMT). Initial public ver- sions of THOT date back to 2005 and did only include estimation of phrase-based models. By contrast, the new version of- fers several new features that had not been previously incorporated. The key innova- tions provided by the toolkit are computer- aided translation, including post-editing and interactive SMT, incremental learn- ing and robust generation of alignments at phrase level. In addition to this, the toolkit also provides standard SMT fea- tures such as fully-automatic translation, scalable and parallel algorithms for model training, client-server implementation of the translation functionality, etc. The toolkit can be compiled in Unix-like and Windows...
