Configuring language detection preferences


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

You can control how a text analyzer detects languages in the analyzed document. For example, you can enable a fallback language in case your text analyzer does not detect the language when analyzing content that is written in multiple languages.

  1. In the Records panel, click Decision Text Analyzer .

  2. Click the Advanced tab.

  3. Perform any of the following actions:

    • To automatically detect the language of a piece of text, go to step 4.

      This is the default option.

    • To manually specify the language of a piece of text, skip to step 5.

      You can use this option when analyzing documents that are written in multiple languages or contain a lot of noise that could interfere with language detection, such as emoticons, URLs, and so on.

  4. To enable the language auto detection feature:

    1. In the Language settings section, select Automatically detect language.

    2. Optional:

      Select Enable fallback language if language undetected and specify the language that the system falls back to in case no language is detected.

    3. Use the language metadata tag ( lang: ) of the incoming records for language detection by selecting Language detected by publisher.

    4. Go to step 7.

  5. To always assign a specific language to the analyzed text, perform the following actions:

    1. Select Specify language.

    2. Select a language from the drop-down list.

    3. Go to step 7.

  6. To use the language metadata tag (lang:) of the incoming records for language detection, perform the following actions:

    1. Select the Language detected by publisher radio button.

    2. Go to step 7.

  7. Click Save.
