# LaBSE for English and Russian

This is a truncated version of sentence-transformers/LaBSE, which is, in turn, a port of LaBSE by Google.

The current model has only English and Russian tokens left in the vocabulary. Thus, the vocabulary is 10% of the original, and number of parameters in the whole model is 27% of the original, without any loss in the quality of English and Russian embeddings.

To get the sentence embeddings, you can use the following code:

import torch
from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModel
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("cointegrated/LaBSE-en-ru")
model = AutoModel.from_pretrained("cointegrated/LaBSE-en-ru")
sentences = ["Hello World", "Привет Мир"]
encoded_input = tokenizer(sentences, padding=True, truncation=True, max_length=64, return_tensors='pt')
model_output = model(**encoded_input)
embeddings = model_output.pooler_output
embeddings = torch.nn.functional.normalize(embeddings)
print(embeddings)
