Dataset Description

Dataset Summary

The Icelandic Crawled Corpus (ICC) contains approximately 930M tokens which have been scraped from a selection of Icelandic websites, including news sites, government websites and forums. The scraped text is presented in its original form, unannotated, untokenized and without deduplication.

Supported Tasks and Leaderboards

The ICC is primarily intended for use in training language models. It can be combined with other corpora, such as the Icelandic Gigaword Corpus and the Icelandic portion of the mC4 corpus.


This corpus contains text in Icelandic, scraped from a variety of online sources.
