Subject [jira] [Commented] (NUTCH-1397) language-identifier incorrectly handles double-barreled language properties
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2012 16:02:42 GMT


Julien Nioche commented on NUTCH-1397:

Lewis, the language identification is a combination of parsing of the html (done in Nutch)
with statistical guessing (from Tika). The parser component ignores compound values and returns
only the main language code, as for the statistical component is returns only the 2 letter
code (and given how bad it is at it, I don't think it would be wise to try and get it to be
more specific). In a nutshell these compound language codes are not supported in Nutch. We
could possible store a separate value with the secondary code when available from the parsing
but not the identifier.
Makes sense?

however does not identify en-GB or en-US. This issues should correct that.
