What is Language Detection API?
The Language Detection API is a service that automatically detects the language of a given text. It can be used in various applications such as Machine Translation, Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Text Analysis. It typically takes a text string as input and returns the detected language code, such as "en" for English or "fr" for French. Many companies provide language detection APIs as a service that can be easily integrated with other applications.
