Catalan BERTa (RoBERTa-base) finetuned for Text Classification.

The roberta-base-ca-cased-tc is a Text Classification (TC) model for the Catalan language fine-tuned from the BERTa model, a RoBERTa base model pre-trained on a medium-size corpus collected from publicly available corpora and crawlers (check the BERTa model card for more details).


We used the TC dataset in Catalan called TeCla for training and evaluation.

Evaluation and results

We evaluated the roberta-base-ca-cased-tc on the TeCla test set against standard multilingual and monolingual baselines:

Model TeCla (accuracy)
roberta-base-ca-cased-tc 74.04
mBERT 70.56
XLM-RoBERTa 71.68
WikiBERT-ca 73.22

For more details, check the fine-tuning and evaluation scripts in the official GitHub repository.
