Abstract: 

In this paper, we present a new word aligner with built-in support for alignment types, as well as comparisons between various models and existing aligner systems. It is an open source software that can be easily extended to use models of users' own design. We expect it to suffice the academics as well as scientists working in the industry to do word alignment, as well as experimenting on their own new models. Here in the present paper, the basic designs and structures will be introduced. Examples and demos of the system are also provided
