Multilingual Text Analysis – Minor Product Update

At AYLIEN we only make promises we can keep. Back in May we announced support for two of our endpoints across multiple languages, Hashtag Suggestion and Concept Extraction. We also promised you we would extend that support to the rest of our endpoints in due course.

We’re not 100% there yet but the good news is, we are well and truly on our way to being fully functional across 6 different languages. From today, we have added multilingual support for a further 5 end points Extraction, Summarization, Classification and Language detection which is available to all users across German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.

Let’s say we want to classify this Article:

All we need to do is:

curl -H "X-Mashape-Authorization: YOUR_MASHAPE_KEY" --data-urlencode "url=http://www.zeit.de/politik/ausland/2014-08/waffenlieferung-kurden" -d "language=auto" https://aylien-text.p.mashape.com/classify

Which returns:

{
  "text": "...",
  "language": "de",
  "categories": [
    {
      "label": "Verteidigung - Militär",
      "code": "11001004",
      "confidence": 1
    }
  ]
}

Cool, Huh?

So, 6 out of 8 endpoints ain’t bad, but we’re not stopping there. We are currently working hard on multilingual support for two of our most popular and complex endpoints; Sentiment Analysis and Entity Extraction. Which we hope to rollout in the next couple of months, so stay tuned for more updates.

What language would you love to see us support?
