SimpleNLG-DE: Adapting SimpleNLG 4 to German

Daniel Braun, Kira Klimt, Daniela Schneider, Florian Matthes


Abstract
SimpleNLG is a popular open source surface realiser for the English language. For German, however, the availability of open source and non-domain specific realisers is sparse, partly due to the complexity of the German language. In this paper, we present SimpleNLG-DE, an adaption of SimpleNLG to German. We discuss which parts of the German language have been implemented and how we evaluated our implementation using the TIGER Corpus and newly created data-sets.
