guess_language – Guess the natural language of a text

Example usage

>>> from guess_language import guess_language, UNKNOWN
>>> guess_language("I’ve been feeling déjà vu all morning.")
>>> guess_language("Tienes que seguir tu corazón.")
>>> guess_language("いいえ!忍者がいます")

If text is very short and PyEnchant is available, check against installed spelling dictionaries.

>>> guess_language("Hello, World!")


You can use the setup script:

$ ./ install

On Windows, you can use one of the MSI binary packages provided on the download page.


This is basically my branch of guess-language, ported to Python 3 and optimized for my own needs.
