Data Release

Short Version:

Here is the data: raw, deduped, and LMs.

For English we provide the raw data in several files that were sharded by a hash value of the line, so that identical lines end up in the same shard.

The processing pipeline uses standard Moses tools and a truecasing model estimated on a large dataset. For English, Spanish, and French the pipeline is available here, more languages will follow soon.
