Model description

Trained using the Fairseq framework, transformer_iwslt_de_en architecture.\ BPE segmentation (20k codes).\ Mixed-case model.

How to use

from transformers import FSMTTokenizer, FSMTForConditionalGeneration

mname = "lighteternal/SSE-TUC-mt-en-el-cased"

tokenizer = FSMTTokenizer.from_pretrained(mname)
model = FSMTForConditionalGeneration.from_pretrained(mname)

text = " 'Katerina', is the best name for a girl."

encoded = tokenizer.encode(text, return_tensors='pt')

outputs = model.generate(encoded, num_beams=5, num_return_sequences=5, early_stopping=True)
for i, output in enumerate(outputs):
    i += 1
    print(f"{i}: {output.tolist()}")
    decoded = tokenizer.decode(output, skip_special_tokens=True)
    print(f"{i}: {decoded}")
