Statistics and TMX/Moses Downloads

Number of files, tokens, and sentences per language (including non-parallel ones if they exist)
Number of sentence alignment units per language pair

Upper-right triangle: download translation memory files (TMX)
Bottom-left triangle: download plain text files (MOSES/GIZA++)

Note that TMX files only contain unique translation units and, therefore, the number of aligned units is smaller than for the distributions in Moses and XML format. Moses downloads include all non-empty alignment units including duplicates. Token counts for each language also include duplicate sentences and documents.
