Models for download

These models were trained using fastText from the corpora available in the Sketch Engine using the SkipGram model with dimension 100.

The models are provided in two different formats. Models with the bin extension are encoded in the native binary fastText format. Models with the vec extension use the textual Word2Vec format. We recommend the bin format, as it contains the subword n-gram information, is more compact and also faster to load.

To make use of these models, load them in fastText for supervised classification or use them with the venerable Gensim package for any NLP tasks you need.

More languages to come

We are continuing building further models for languages for which we have enough data in Sketch Engine. If you would like us to prioritise a language for which there is a large enough corpus in Sketch Engine but we have not built embeddings yet, please send an e-mail to
