NLP Tools For Language Detection
by Sri Balaji J Updated: Jun 21, 2022
Language identification can be an important step in a Natural Language Processing (NLP) problem. It involves trying to predict the natural language of a piece of text. It is important to know the language of the text before other actions (i.e. translation/ sentiment analysis) can be taken.
These are general NLP libraries that support language detection.
