In this article, we describe a tool for visualizing the output and attention weights of neural machine translation systems and for estimating confidence about the output based on the attention. Our aim is to help researchers and developers better understand the behaviour of their NMT systems without the need for any reference translations. Our tool includes command line and web-based interfaces that allow to systematically evaluate translation outputs from various engines and experiments. We
