bert2bert_L-24_wmt_en_de EncoderDecoder model

The model was introduced in this paper by Sascha Rothe, Shashi Narayan, Aliaksei Severyn and first released in this repository.

The model is an encoder-decoder model that was initialized on the bert-large checkpoints for both the encoder and decoder and fine-tuned on English to German translation on the WMT dataset, which is linked above.

How to use

You can use this model for translation, e.g.

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM

tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("google/bert2bert_L-24_wmt_en_de", pad_token="<pad>", eos_token="</s>", bos_token="<s>")
model = AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM.from_pretrained("google/bert2bert_L-24_wmt_en_de")

sentence = "Would you like to grab a coffee with me this week?"

input_ids = tokenizer(sentence, return_tensors="pt", add_special_tokens=False).input_ids
output_ids = model.generate(input_ids)[0]
print(tokenizer.decode(output_ids, skip_special_tokens=True))
# should output
# Möchten Sie diese Woche einen Kaffee mit mir schnappen?
