Language identification technology can identify the language of a given text or content with ease. By analyzing the language features of the input text, this technology can determine the language and provide the corresponding output.
Language identification tools are widely used in different applications, including multilingual websites, language translation utilities, and tools for monitoring social media. By automatically detecting the language in which the content is generated by the user, these devices are capable of delivering appropriate translations or responses.
For users seeking a cost-effective engine, opting for an open-source model is the recommended choice. Here is the list of the best Language Detection Open Source Models:

Our standardized API enables you to integrate Language Recognition APIs into your system with ease by utilizing various providers on Eden AI. Here is the list (in alphabetical order):
AWS offers a Language Detector powered by Amazon Comprehend - a useful tool for analyzing text and determining its dominant language. Using identifiers from the RFC 5646 standard, the API can accurately predict languages and provide a confidence score.
Amazon Comprehend can easily handle large, complex documents by breaking them down into smaller segments for analysis and producing easy-to-comprehend results. However, please be aware that the API may struggle to differentiate between similar language pairs and lacks support for phonetic language detection. Nevertheless, this API is a dependable and robust instrument for language analysis.
Google Cloud's Language Detector provides a dependable and potent language identification tool. With over 120 languages supported, it is one of the most comprehensive APIs available, accurately and promptly discerning the language of a given text. It also gives you the option of customizing batch sizes to process more extensive amounts of text.
IBM offers the Watson Natural Language Understanding solution to identify the language of input text in real-time, utilizing deep learning technology. This API is created on IBM's Watson Language Translator service and is trained on a extensive corpus of text in various languages, ensuring excellent accuracy even with intricate and nuanced languages. Furthermore, this API is brought to you as a scalable and adaptable cloud-based service, facilitating its seamless integration into applications.
Azure's Language Detection API is included as part of the Azure Cognitive Service for Language. It accurately detects the language of a document, including dialects and regional differences. This comprehensive language processing solution is designed for businesses and includes features such as sentiment analysis, key phrase extraction, and entity recognition. All of these features are powered by advanced state-of-the-art AI and machine learning technologies.
ModernMT offers an API that detects any given text's language using advanced machine learning algorithms.
