Download Models

Stanza provides pretrained NLP models for a total 70 human languages. On this page we provide detailed information on how to download these models to process text in a language of your choosing.

Pretrained models in Stanza can be divided into two categories, based on the datasets they were trained on:

  1. Universal Dependencies (UD) models, which are trained on the UD treebanks, and cover functionalities including tokenization, multi-word token (MWT) expansion, lemmatization, part-of-speech (POS) and morphological features tagging and dependency parsing;
  2. NER models, which support named entity tagging for 8 languages, and are trained on various NER datasets.

Downloading Stanza models is as simple as calling the method. We provide detailed examples on how to use the download interface on the Getting Started page. Detailed descriptions of all available options (i.e., arguments) of the download method are listed below:

langstr'en'Language code (e.g., "en") or language name (e.g., "English") for the language to process with the Pipeline. See the tables of available models below for a complete list of supported languages.
model_dirstr'~/stanza_resources'Directory for storing the models downloaded for Stanza. By default, Stanza stores its models in a folder in your home directory.
packagestr'default'Package to download for processors, where each package typically specifies what data the models are trained on. We provide a “default” package for all languages that contains NLP models most users will find useful, which will be used when the package argument isn’t specified. See table below for a complete list of available packages.
processorsdict or strdict()Processors to download models for. This can either be specified as a comma-seperated list of processor names to use (e.g., 'tokenize,pos'), or a Python dictionary with processor names as keys and package names as corresponding values (e.g., {'tokenize': 'ewt', 'pos': 'ewt'}). All unspecified processors will fall back to using the package specified by the package argument. A list of all Processors supported can be found here.
logging_levelstr'INFO'Controls the level of logging information to display during download. Can be one of 'DEBUG', 'INFO', 'WARN', 'ERROR', 'CIRTICAL', or 'FATAL'. Less information will be displayed going from 'DEBUG' to 'FATAL'.
verbosestrNoneSimplified option for logging level. If True, logging level will be set to 'INFO'. If False, logging level will be set to 'ERROR' (i.e., only show errors).
