Stanford Phrasal is a state-of-the-art statistical phrase-based machine translation system, written in Java. At its core, it provides much the same functionality as the core of Moses. Distinctive features include: providing an easy to use API for implementing new decoding model features, the ability to translating using phrases that include gaps (Galley et al. 2010), and conditional extraction of phrase-tables and lexical reordering models.
Phrasal is available for download, licensed under the GNU General Public License (v2 or later). Source is included. The package includes components for command-line invocation, and a Java API.

We have 3 mailing lists for Stanford Phrasal, all of which are shared
with other JavaNLP tools (with the exclusion of the parser). Each address is
java-nlp-userThis is the best list to post to in order to ask questions, make announcements, or for discussion among JavaNLP users. You have to subscribe to be able to use it. Join the list via this webpage or by emailing
firstname.lastname@example.org. (Leave the subject and message body empty.) You can also look at the list archives.
java-nlp-announceThis list will be used only to announce new versions of Stanford JavaNLP tools. So it will be very low volume (expect 1-3 message a year). Join the list via via this webpage or by emailing
email@example.com. (Leave the subject and message body empty.)
java-nlp-supportThis list goes only to the software maintainers. It's a good address for licensing questions, etc. For general use and support questions, please join and use
java-nlp-user. You cannot join
java-nlp-support, but you can mail questions to
