Language detection. Is it 100% reliable?

Keep.eu uses automatic language detection as a means to help its users reach more easily and quickly their required data. Language detection is however not 100% reliable.

In the cases of fields with only a few words, it is extremely difficult for the software to distinguish languages, and is therefore prone to error. For example, if a project is named keep.eu, what is the language of this name?

Please understand language detection in keep.eu only as a best-effort method to help users with their searches for information.

Keep.eu uses Cloud Translation by Google Cloud, and langdetect (a port of Google’s language-detection library for Python), to detect the text languages in keep.eu. Furthermore, Cloud Translation by Google Cloud provides automatic translations for the validation of incoming data.
