# 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](https://huggingface.co/PlanTL-GOB-ES/roberta-base-ca) model, a [RoBERTa](https://arxiv.org/abs/1907.11692) base model pre-trained on a medium-size corpus collected from publicly available corpora and crawlers (check the BERTa model card for more details).
## Datasets
We used the TC dataset in Catalan called [TeCla](https://huggingface.co/datasets/projecte-aina/viquiquad) 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](https://github.com/projecte-aina/club).
