Preprocessing message in custom component?


I ask myself how do I use custom components for preprocessing incoming messages (so for NLU parsing not processing training data)?

My training data is already preprocessed, so I just want to preprocess messages which are called within the parse method of the interpreter.Do I use just he process method in the custom component?

At which position in the config file do I have to put this component then so the parse method of is overwritten?

yes process method of a custom component will be called during prediction time. Position depends on before and after which component do you want your custom component to be used
