Snowball stemmer is not of very good quality. I think the best would be to build a lemmatizer
from ispell more precisely from the ispell rules syntax. As for the language identifier the
best overall language identifier is based on Ted Dunning. You can find the source code on
the web. 

its c code but can easily be ported to java. Also of interest is the Mozilla source code,
there is code that do encoding detection. In fact I devellloped a java lib starting from that
source code. Its based upon the LGPL license would you be interested to merge that source
code in Lucene?

Now that Doug put Snowball's stemmer's in Lucene Sandbox, it would be
nice to have that language recognition contribution that somebody
mentioned a month or two ago.

Ah, here it is, the original email that mentions this language

There's also this:
