Model Details

Model Description

This is a Machine Translation model, finetuned from NLLB-200's distilled 1.3B model, it is meant to be used in machine translation for education-related data.

How to Get Started with the Model

Use the code below to get started with the model.

Training Procedure

The model was finetuned on three datasets; a general purpose dataset, a tourism, and an education dataset.

The model was finetuned in two phases.

Phase one:

  • General purpose dataset
  • Education dataset
  • Tourism dataset

Phase two:

  • Education dataset

Other than the dataset changes between phase one, and phase two finetuning; no other hyperparameters were modified. In both cases, the model was trained on an A100 40GB GPU for two epochs.


Testing Data


Model performance was measured using BLEU, spBLEU, and chrF++ metrics.
