Install

pip install -U sacremoses

NOTE: Sacremoses only supports Python 3 now (sacremoses>=0.0.41). If you're using Python 2, the last possible version is sacremoses==0.0.40.

Usage (Python)

Tokenizer and Detokenizer

>>> from sacremoses import MosesTokenizer, MosesDetokenizer
>>> mt = MosesTokenizer(lang='en')
>>> text = u'This, is a sentence with weird\xbb symbols\u2026 appearing everywhere\xbf'
>>> expected_tokenized = u'This , is a sentence with weird \xbb symbols \u2026 appearing everywhere \xbf'
>>> tokenized_text = mt.tokenize(text, return_str=True)
>>> tokenized_text == expected_tokenized
True


>>> mt, md = MosesTokenizer(lang='en'), MosesDetokenizer(lang='en')
>>> sent = "This ain't funny. It's actually hillarious, yet double Ls. | [] < > [ ] & You're gonna shake it off? Don't?"
>>> expected_tokens = [u'This', u'ain', u'&apos;t', u'funny', u'.', u'It', u'&apos;s', u'actually', u'hillarious', u',', u'yet', u'double', u'Ls', u'.', u'&#124;', u'&#91;', u'&#93;', u'&lt;', u'&gt;', u'&#91;', u'&#93;', u'&amp;', u'You', u'&apos;re', u'gonna', u'shake', u'it', u'off', u'?', u'Don', u'&apos;t', u'?']
>>> expected_detokens = "This ain't funny. It's actually hillarious, yet double Ls. | [] < > [] & You're gonna shake it off? Don't?"
>>> mt.tokenize(sent) == expected_tokens
True
>>> md.detokenize(tokens) == expected_detokens
True

Truecaser

>>> from sacremoses import MosesTruecaser, MosesTokenizer

# Train a new truecaser from a 'big.txt' file.
>>> mtr = MosesTruecaser()
>>> mtok = MosesTokenizer(lang='en')

# Save the truecase model to 'big.truecasemodel' using `save_to`
>> tokenized_docs = [mtok.tokenize(line) for line in open('big.txt')]
>>> mtr.train(tokenized_docs, save_to='big.truecasemodel')

# Save the truecase model to 'big.truecasemodel' after training
# (just in case you forgot to use `save_to`)
>>> mtr = MosesTruecaser()
>>> mtr.train('big.txt')
>>> mtr.save_model('big.truecasemodel')

# Truecase a string after training a model.
>>> mtr = MosesTruecaser()
>>> mtr.train('big.txt')
>>> mtr.truecase("THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES")
['the', 'adventures', 'of', 'Sherlock', 'Holmes']

# Loads a model and truecase a string using trained model.
>>> mtr = MosesTruecaser('big.truecasemodel')
>>> mtr.truecase("THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES")
['the', 'adventures', 'of', 'Sherlock', 'Holmes']
>>> mtr.truecase("THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES", return_str=True)
'the ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES'
>>> mtr.truecase("THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES", return_str=True, use_known=True)
'the adventures of Sherlock Holmes'

Normalizer

>>> from sacremoses import MosesPunctNormalizer
>>> mpn = MosesPunctNormalizer()
>>> mpn.normalize('THIS EBOOK IS OTHERWISE PROVIDED TO YOU "AS-IS."')
'THIS EBOOK IS OTHERWISE PROVIDED TO YOU "AS-IS."'

Usage (CLI)

Since version 0.0.42, the pipeline feature for CLI is introduced, thus there are global options that should be set first before calling the commands:

  • language
  • processes
  • encoding
  • quiet
$ pip install -U sacremoses>=0.0.42

$ sacremoses --help
Usage: sacremoses [OPTIONS] COMMAND1 [ARGS]... [COMMAND2 [ARGS]...]...

Options:
  -l, --language TEXT      Use language specific rules when tokenizing
  -j, --processes INTEGER  No. of processes.
  -e, --encoding TEXT      Specify encoding of file.
  -q, --quiet              Disable progress bar.
  --version                Show the version and exit.
  -h, --help               Show this message and exit.

Commands:
  detokenize
  detruecase
  normalize
  tokenize
  train-truecase
  truecase

Pipeline

Example to chain the following commands:

  • normalize with -c option to remove control characters.
  • tokenize with -a option for aggressive dash split rules.
  • truecase with -a option to indicate that model is for ASR
    • if big.truemodel exists, load the model with -m option,
    • otherwise train a model and save it with -m option to big.truemodel file.
  • save the output to console to the big.txt.norm.tok.true file.
cat big.txt | sacremoses -l en -j 4 \
    normalize -c tokenize -a truecase -a -m big.truemodel \
    > big.txt.norm.tok.true

  -h, --help                     Show this message and exit.
