# distilbert-base-en-es-it-cased
We are sharing smaller versions of [distilbert-base-multilingual-cased](https://huggingface.co/distilbert-base-multilingual-cased) that handle a custom number of languages.
Our versions give exactly the same representations produced by the original model which preserves the original accuracy.
For more information please visit our paper: [Load What You Need: Smaller Versions of Multilingual BERT](https://www.aclweb.org/anthology/2020.sustainlp-1.16.pdf).
## How to use
```python
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModel
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("Geotrend/distilbert-base-en-es-it-cased")
model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("Geotrend/distilbert-base-en-es-it-cased")
```
To generate other smaller versions of multilingual transformers please visit [our Github repo](https://github.com/Geotrend-research/smaller-transformers).
