About the model

The model has been trained on a dataset containing 264519 sentences with UK English spelling, along with their US English equivalent.

The purpose of the model is to rewrite sentences from UK English to US English. It is capable not only of changing the spelling of words (such as "colour" to "color") but also changes the vocabulary appropriately (for example, "underground" to "subway", "solicitor" to "lawyer" and so on).

Sample code

Sample Python code:

import torch
from transformers import T5ForConditionalGeneration,T5Tokenizer

device = torch.device("cuda" if torch.cuda.is_available() else "cpu")

model = T5ForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained("EnglishVoice/t5-base-uk-to-us-english")
tokenizer = T5Tokenizer.from_pretrained("EnglishVoice/t5-base-uk-to-us-english")
model = model.to(device)

input = "My favourite colour is yellow."

text =  "UK to US: " + input
encoding = tokenizer.encode_plus(text, return_tensors = "pt")
input_ids = encoding["input_ids"].to(device)
attention_masks = encoding["attention_mask"].to(device)
beam_outputs = model.generate(
    input_ids = input_ids,
    attention_mask = attention_masks,
    early_stopping = True,

result = tokenizer.decode(beam_outputs[0], skip_special_tokens=True)


My favorite color is yellow.
