Language detection library ported from Google's language-detection.
Port of [language-detection](https://code.google.com/p/language-detection/) (version from 03/03/2014) library to Python.
$ pip install langdetect
Supported Python versions 2.6, 2.7, 3.x.
To detect the language of the text:
>>> from langdetect import detect >>> detect("War doesn't show who's right, just who's left.") 'en' >>> detect("Ein, zwei, drei, vier") 'de'
To find out the probabilities for the top languages:
>>> from langdetect import detect_langs >>> detect_langs("Otec matka syn.") [sk:0.572770823327, pl:0.292872522702, cs:0.134356653968]
Language detection algorithm is non-deterministic, which means that if you try to run it on a text which is either too short or too ambiguous, you might get different results everytime you run it.
To enforce consistent results, call following code before the first language detection:
from langdetect import DetectorFactory DetectorFactory.seed = 0
This library is a direct port of [language-detection](https://code.google.com/p/language-detection/) from Java to Python. All the classes and methods (even unit tests) are unchanged, so for more information see the project’s website or wiki.
