HANA Text analysis Language detection

Hi Experts,

I have a scenario were I need to process a document Content.. In this Content there are german(majority) & english words.. Ideally the text index table $TA should result with the appropriate language for all these words.. But unfortunately it gives me only DE as the language Output for all Tokens.

eg. In a document with german Content, there are words like Sentiment, in, store ,etc which should be identified as english but instead they are identified as german..

I have created the text index with LANGUAGE DETECTION ('EN','DE')

Any info on this ? @Anthony Waite

    Hi Avinash,

    Please refer to the Language Detection Problems discussion for the openSAP: Text Analytics with SAP HANA Platform course.

    Hi Avinash,

    I think currently there is no support for multi language texts as shown below:

    It may be choosing the primary language of the column and hence you are getting only DE

      Yea Krishna,

      Looks like mixed language text is not supported.. It detects only a single language based on the Input..Should wait for future Releases 😊
