Re: Language of parts for user generated content

Google Translate identifies languages reasonably accurately, so I was wondering if such a language recognition service was available as an API. A quick search turned up https://detectlanguage.com/. I don't know anything about this service other than it appears to do what you want.

Subject: Re: [WebAIM] Language of parts for user generated content

Is there a way to prompt the user for language or use system language?
