Hi everybody, "Thank you so much for your useful suggestions", However, the size of the our corpora is almost 20 GB and we have memory problem. Indeed, we have 300K target unique words and 750K alignments and we can not load document-word or word-alignments matrices in the memory. How can I use the tools efficiently? Best, Javid
