Text-to-table structuring


A text2table model is a sophisticated tool designed to transform raw text into a neatly organized table. Users define the columns, and the model populates the table with content extracted directly from the given text. This documentation provides a comprehensive guide on how to utilize this innovative model effectively.

Key features

Extracting and structuring data: it meticulously extracts relevant information from the text and places it in predefined columns, providing a clear and structured data representation. Adaptable for any domain: a Text2Table showcases high precision across a vast array of domains, ensuring accuracy regardless of the topic at hand. For instances requiring even more tailored results, our team is ready to fine-tune the model to suit specific needs – feel free to contact us for personalized adjustments. Handling large texts with ease: for texts exceeding the model limit, Text2Table works seamlessly with additional tools to preprocess, split, and then merge the data, ensuring comprehensive coverage without compromising on detail. Works on various data types: we offer tools that can extract information directly from websites or PDF files, facilitating a seamless transition from raw data to structured tables.

Use cases

  1. 1.
    Building datasets: Text2Table can be instrumental in creating datasets for a variety of needs, aiding in the transformation of any text into a neatly organized table format. This is particularly useful for professionals and organizations aiming to train machine learning models, conduct statistical analyses, or perform data visualization.
  2. 2.
    Business reporting: companies can leverage Text2Table to transform raw text from various sources into organized tables for reports. This is particularly useful for departments like HR or finance, where data from emails, documents, or forms need to be compiled and analyzed.
  3. 3.
    Content management: for content creators and managers dealing with large repositories of articles, blogs, or other written materials, Text2Table provides an efficient way to categorize and structure content. This aids in better content retrieval, management, and analysis.
  4. 4.
    Customer feedback analysis: businesses can use Text2Table to convert customer feedback, reviews, or survey responses into a tabular format. This makes it easier to identify common themes, assess overall customer sentiment, and implement improvements.


Get started

1. Obtain an API key

  • Generate an API key and use it in your API requests. Check our authentication guide for help.
  • Ensure you're subscribed to the Text2Table API on Rapid API and select a plan that fits your needs.

2. Make your first request

With your API key in hand, you are now allowed to make your first request to NER models. Kindly proceed to the API reference page to acquire knowledge on configuring an API request and to familiarize yourself with all the pertinent API details.

3. Handling high-scale text

When working with large volumes of text that surpass the 3900 token limit of Text2Table, we propose a suite of APIs that ensures seamless processing and integration of a bigger amount of data. Follow this sequence for optimal results:
  1. 1.
    Preprocess text: before text-to-table transformation run preprocessing using a text_preprocessing API. It breaks down your extensive text into manageable chunks, each fitting within the 3900 token limit.
  2. 2.
    Structure text to the table: setup a final table columns and feed the preprocessed text chunks into /text2table API, transforming each segment into a structured table format.
  3. 3.
    Merging results: finally, using /merge_tables API merge the individual table results back into a single comprehensive table, ensuring a unified and organized dataset.
By adhering to this workflow, you guarantee precision and efficiency in handling and structuring large textual datasets, ready for further analysis or application.

4. Extract data from web pages and PDF files

For scenarios involving processing web data or PDF files, incorporate these additional steps into your workflow.
  1. 1.
    Web scraping: employ the /web2text API to seamlessly extract textual content directly from web pages, preparing it for further /text2table processing.
  2. 2.
    PDF extraction: for documents in PDF format, utilize the /pdf2text extraction tool to convert the document's content into a text format suitable for /text2table processing.
