Identify what languages a website is written in
Sitebeam currently recognises these languages:
Albanian, Arabic, British English, Bulgarian, Chinese/Japanese/Korean, Code, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, US English, Ukrainian, Urdu, Vietnamese, Welsh.
Why is it important?
For large sites, identifying the amount of content in different languages can be difficult. This test is also used by several other tests (such as Spelling) to determine how parts of the site should be tested differently.
How is it measured?
Sitebeam checks each page in the website, and attempts to classify each sentence in the website by language.
This test never awards a score. If more than one language is found, it reports detail on which pages use which languages.
