There are three steps in porting SIMR to new language pairs. The first step is to choose an appropriate matching predicate, and collect any linguistic resources required by that matching predicate. The second step is to implement bitext space axis generation routines that are consistent with the matching predicate. The last step is to re-optimize SIMR's numerical parameters. This document explains each step in detail. It assumes that you have read and understood the paper [1]. It also assumes that you have SIMR and the porting tools properly installed.
