Language Detector



Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is language recognition? (Definition)

A language is a system of signs (characters) that enables communication between people. Language recognition (dialect or lang detection) is a process that aims to determine the language in which a text is written. It uses algorithms and statistical models to analyze the linguistic characteristics of the text and assign a specific language to it.

How to recognize/identify the language of a text?

Language recognition is mainly based on the analysis of the frequencies of words, characters and n-grams (combinations of n consecutive characters) present in the text. This data is then compared to the characteristics of the different languages to determine the most probable.

— A quick method is to detect/identify/recognize common words in a language.

Example: In English a, to, of, etc., in French, de, la, le, un, et

— Count rare characters (or missing ones) to discriminate some foreign languages

Example: In English, the letter j is rare, in French, the letter w is rare and limited to words imported from other languages

— Look for language specific characters/signs as diacritics

Example: In Spanish, the ñ (tilde n) appears often, in French, accent letters such as â,ç,è,é,ê,î,ô,û,ù are used, etc.
