Detect Language API Python Client

PyPI version Build Status

Detects language of given text. Returns detected language codes and scores.

Before using Detect Language API client you have to setup your personal API key. You can get it by signing up at https://detectlanguage.com

Installation

pip install detectlanguage

import detectlanguage

detectlanguage.configuration.api_key = "YOUR API KEY"

# detectlanguage.configuration.secure = True

Usage

Language detection

detectlanguage.detect("Buenos dias señor")

Result

[{'isReliable': True, 'confidence': 12.04, 'language': 'es'}]

Simple language detection

If you need just a language code you can use simple_detect. It returns just the language code.

detectlanguage.simple_detect("Buenos dias señor")

Result

'es'

Batch detection

It is possible to detect language of several texts with one request. This method is faster than doing one request per text. To use batch detection just pass array of texts to detect method.

detectlanguage.detect(["Buenos dias señor", "Labas rytas"])

Result

Result is array of detections in the same order as the texts were passed.

[ [ {'isReliable': True, 'confidence': 12.04, 'language': 'es'} ],
  [ {'isReliable': True, 'confidence': 9.38, 'language': 'lt'} ] ]

Getting your account status

detectlanguage.user_status()
