## Model Details
Neural machine translation model for translating from Italic languages (itc) to Baltic languages (bat).
This model is part of the [OPUS-MT project](https://github.com/Helsinki-NLP/Opus-MT), an effort to make neural machine translation models widely available and accessible for many languages in the world. All models are originally trained using the amazing framework of [Marian NMT](https://marian-nmt.github.io/), an efficient NMT implementation written in pure C++. The models have been converted to pyTorch using the transformers library by huggingface. Training data is taken from [OPUS](https://opus.nlpl.eu/) and training pipelines use the procedures of [OPUS-MT-train](https://github.com/Helsinki-NLP/Opus-MT-train).
**Model Description:**
- **Developed by:** Language Technology Research Group at the University of Helsinki
- **Model Type:** Translation (transformer-big)
- **Release**: 2022-07-27
- **License:** CC-BY-4.0
- **Language(s):**
- Source Language(s): cat fra glg ita por spa
- Target Language(s): lav lit prg
- Language Pair(s): cat-lav cat-lit fra-lav fra-lit glg-lav glg-lit ita-lav ita-lit por-lav por-lit spa-lit
- Valid Target Language Labels: >>lav<< >>lit<< >>ltg<< >>ndf<< >>olt<< >>prg<< >>prg_Latn<< >>sgs<< >>svx<< >>sxl<< >>xcu<< >>xgl<< >>xsv<< >>xzm<<

- [Tatoeba Translation Challenge](https://github.com/Helsinki-NLP/Tatoeba-Challenge/
This is a multilingual translation model with multiple target languages. A sentence initial language token is required in the form of `>>id<<` (id = valid target language ID), e.g. `>>lav<<`
## Uses
This model can be used for translation and text-to-text generation.
## Risks, Limitations and Biases
**CONTENT WARNING: Readers should be aware that the model is trained on various public data sets that may contain content that is disturbing, offensive, and can propagate historical and current stereotypes.**
Significant research has explored bias and fairness issues with language models (see, e.g., [Sheng et al. (2021)](https://aclanthology.org/2021.acl-long.330.pdf) and [Bender et al. (2021)](https://dl.acm.org/doi/pdf/10.1145/3442188.3445922)).
## How to Get Started With the Model
A short example code:
```python
from transformers import MarianMTModel, MarianTokenizer
src_text = [
">>lit<< Els gats són complexos individus.",
">>sgs<< No."
]
model_name = "pytorch-models/opus-mt-tc-big-itc-bat"
tokenizer = MarianTokenizer.from_pretrained(model_name)
model = MarianMTModel.from_pretrained(model_name)
translated = model.generate(**tokenizer(src_text, return_tensors="pt", padding=True))
for t in translated:
print( tokenizer.decode(t, skip_special_tokens=True) )
# expected output:
# Katės yra sudėtingi individai.
# no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no
```
You can also use OPUS-MT models with the transformers pipelines, for example:
```python
from transformers import pipeline
pipe = pipeline("translation", model="Helsinki-NLP/opus-mt-tc-big-itc-bat")
print(pipe(">>lit<< Els gats són complexos individus."))
# expected output: Katės yra sudėtingi individai.
```
