Modes to automatically normalise Early Modern French texts (i.e. from the 17th c.) into contemporary French spelling norms. Several models are provided (an LSTM model using Fairseq, a transformer model also using Fairseq and an SMT model trained using Moses). All models are trained on the FreEM_norm parallel corpus. For more information, please refer to: the paper detailing the motivations, methods and training [HAL] the code repository [github] If you use these models, please cite the following paper: Rachel Bawden, Jonathan Poinhos, Eleni Kogkitsidou, Philippe Gambette, Benoît Sagot and Simon Gabay. 2022.
