Language names

Text_LanguageDetect works with language names. It accepts language names for a number of methods, e.g. omitLanguages() and returns language names. By default, a "language name" is a lowercase english name of a language.

Often, applications work with ISO 639-1 or ISO 639-2 language codes - two-letter or three letter codes. Text_LanguageDetect supports them since version 0.3.0, and you may enable them with setNameMode():

<?php
$text 
'Das ist ein kleiner deutscher Text';

require_once 
'Text/LanguageDetect.php';
$ld = new Text_LanguageDetect();

//default mode: full language name: "german"
echo $ld->detectSimple($text) . "\n";

//two-letter mode: "de"
$ld->setNameMode(2);
echo 
$ld->detectSimple($text) . "\n";

//three-letter mode: "deu"
$ld->setNameMode(3);
echo 
$ld->detectSimple($text) . "\n";

?>

The above example gives the following output:

Output

german
de
deu
