How to Fix OSError: Can’t find model ‘en’ in Spacy

Can't find model 'en' in Spacy

OSError: Can’t find model ‘en’ error typically occurs in Python when the “English language model you’re trying to use with spaCy hasn’t been installed in your machine.” When you install spaCy, the core library is installed, but language models must be downloaded separately.

How to fix the error

Here are some steps to fix this issue:

Step 1: Make Sure spaCy is Installed

Ensure you have spacy installed. You can install it via pip if you haven’t:

pip install spacy

Step 2: Download the English Language Model

You can download the English language model using the following command:

python -m spacy download en_core_web_sm

This will download the small English model (en_core_web_sm). There are medium (en_core_web_md) and large (en_core_web_lg) models, which you can download depending on your requirements.

Step 3: Import and Load the Model in Your Code

Once downloaded, you can load this model in your Python script as follows:

import spacy 

nlp = spacy.load("en_core_web_sm")

Now, you can use the nlp object for various natural language processing tasks.

That’s it!
