This repository brings an implementation of T5 for translation in EN-PT tasks using a modest hardware setup. We propose some changes in tokenizator and post-processing that improves the result and used a Portuguese pretrained model for the translation. You can collect more informations in our repository. Also, check our paper!


Just follow "Use in Transformers" instructions. It is necessary to add a few words before to define the task to T5.

You can also create a pipeline for it. An example with the phrase "I like to eat rice" is:

from transformers import AutoTokenizer, AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM, pipeline
tokenizer = AutoTokenizer.from_pretrained("unicamp-dl/translation-en-pt-t5")

model = AutoModelForSeq2SeqLM.from_pretrained("unicamp-dl/translation-en-pt-t5")

enpt_pipeline = pipeline('text2text-generation', model=model, tokenizer=tokenizer)

enpt_pipeline("translate English to Portuguese: I like to eat rice.")
