+ # DistilBERT base multilingual model (cased)
9
+
10
+ This model is a distilled version of the [BERT base multilingual model](bert-base-multilingual-cased). The code for the distillation process can be found
11
+ [here](https://github.com/huggingface/transformers/tree/master/examples/distillation). This model is cased: it does make a difference between english and English.
12
+
13
+ The model is trained on the concatenation of Wikipedia in 104 different languages listed [here](https://github.com/google-research/bert/blob/master/multilingual.md#list-of-languages).
14
+ The model has 6 layers, 768 dimension and 12 heads, totalizing 134M parameters (compared to 177M parameters for mBERT-base).
15
+ On average DistilmBERT is twice as fast as mBERT-base.
16
+
17
+ We encourage to check [BERT base multilingual model](bert-base-multilingual-cased) to know more about usage, limitations and potential biases.
