# How can I convert text data to CoNLL format?

This is the same question that I posted on stackoverflow, but I wondered stackexchange would be appropriate for this question.

I would like to convert text data to CoNLL format.

I was born in 1981.
From 12 to 24.

CoNLL（.conll file)

I    O

in   O
1981 B-DateTime

However, I only found a library for CoNLL-U format(conllu) and a library looked like for CoNLL（pyconll） but no sample code, so I have no idea to apply for it to text-CoNLL conversion.

I'm stacked with how to convert the data to CoNLL and how to write Python3 script to do it.

• Have you looked into using spaCy to parse the string into the CoNLL format? Aug 2 '21 at 10:20
