Dataset Card for RO-STS

Dataset Summary

We present RO-STS - the Semantic Textual Similarity dataset for the Romanian language. It is a high-quality translation of the STS English dataset. RO-STS contains 8,628 sentence pairs with their similarity scores. The original English sentences were collected from news headlines, captions of images and user forums, and are categorized accordingly. The Romanian release follows this categorization and provides the same train/validation/test split with 5,749/1,500/1,379 sentence pairs in each subset.
