legal_t5_small_trans_de_cs model

Model on translating legal text from Deustch to Cszech. It was first released in this repository. This model is trained on three parallel corpus from jrc-acquis, europarl and dcep.

Model description

legal_t5_small_trans_de_cs is based on the t5-small model and was trained on a large corpus of parallel text. This is a smaller model, which scales the baseline model of t5 down by using dmodel = 512, dff = 2,048, 8-headed attention, and only 6 layers each in the encoder and decoder. This variant has about 60 million parameters.

Intended uses & limitations

The model could be used for translation of legal texts from Deustch to Cszech.

How to use

Here is how to use this model to translate legal text from Deustch to Cszech in PyTorch:

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelWithLMHead, TranslationPipeline

pipeline = TranslationPipeline(
tokenizer=AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained(pretrained_model_name_or_path = "SEBIS/legal_t5_small_trans_de_cs", do_lower_case=False, 

de_text = "17. empfiehlt die Einführung einer spezifischen Strategie zur Unterstützung neuer und demokratisch gewählter Parlamente im Hinblick auf eine dauerhafte Verankerung von Demokratie, Rechtsstaatlichkeit und guter Staatsführung;"

pipeline([de_text], max_length=512)

Training data

The legal_t5_small_trans_de_cs model was trained on JRC-ACQUIS, EUROPARL, and DCEP dataset consisting of 5 Million parallel texts.

Training procedure

The model was trained on a single TPU Pod V3-8 for 250K steps in total, using sequence length 512 (batch size 4096). It has a total of approximately 220M parameters and was trained using the encoder-decoder architecture. The optimizer used is AdaFactor with inverse square root learning rate schedule for pre-training.


An unigram model trained with 88M lines of text from the parallel corpus (of all possible language pairs) to get the vocabulary (with byte pair encoding), which is used with this model.


Evaluation results

When the model is used for translation test dataset, achieves the following results:
