Language Detection

A very elementary function of the Extractor is to detect the language of a piece of text. The method name is "detectLanguage" and the parameter is "text".

We will use the following example text in English:

A Spritz Veneziano also called just Spritz or just Veneziano, is an Italian wine-based cocktail, commonly served as an aperitif in northeast Italy. The drink originated in Venice while it was part of the Austrian Empire, and is based on the Austrian Spritzer, a combination of equal parts white wine and soda water.

Use the following call:

Detection of a Korean Text

The Extractor can also detect the language for texts that use characters differing from English, such as Korean:

스프리츠(Spritz)는 이탈리아의 와인을 베이스로한 칵테일이다. 북부 지방에서 주로 애용되며, 프로세코와 탄산수를 이용하여 만든다.
