LaBSE

This is a port of the LaBSE model to PyTorch. It can be used to map 109 languages to a shared vector space.

Usage (Sentence-Transformers)

Using this model becomes easy when you have sentence-transformers installed:

pip install -U sentence-transformers

Then you can use the model like this:

from sentence_transformers import SentenceTransformer
sentences = ["This is an example sentence", "Each sentence is converted"]

model = SentenceTransformer('sentence-transformers/LaBSE')
embeddings = model.encode(sentences)
print(embeddings)

Evaluation Results
