Automatic Detection and Language Identification of Multilingual Documents
Marco Lui | Jey Han Lau | Timothy Baldwin
Transactions of the Association for Computational Linguistics, Volume 2

Language identification is the task of automatically detecting the language(s) present in a document based on the content of the document. In this work, we address the problem of detecting documents that contain text from more than one language (multilingual documents). We introduce a method that is able to detect that a document is multilingual, identify the languages present, and estimate their relative proportions. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our method over synthetic data, as well as real-world multilingual documents collected from the web.
