Articles 1 min read

In this article, I would like to show you how easy it is to create a Power App to perform language detection, which is a readily available AI Builder prebuilt productivity model in Power Platform.

What is Language Detection?

As per Microsoft docs,

The language detection prebuilt model identifies the predominant language of a text document. The model analyses the text and returns the detected language and a numeric score from 0 through 1. Scores close to 1 indicate higher confidence in the result. The detected language is returned as the "script" of the language.

In short, the prebuilt language detection model identifies the predominant language of a text document. The model analyses the text and returns the detected language and a numeric score between 0 and 1. Scores close to 1 indicate higher confidence in the result.

Model output

The language detection model outputs the following information when text is detected:

Language

  • en
  • fr
  • ru etc

Score

Value in the range from 0 through 1. Values close to 1 indicate greater confidence that the language detected is correct.

Language Detection Power App

We will build a simple one screen Power App where a user will be allowed to input data in any language. The user will then click on a button and the Power App will display the language detection result of input data.

The following screen show shows the sentiment analysis of a single word in the Hindi language “नमस्ते”.

If data is input in a mixed language, for example, Hindi and English, the confidence score associated with the detected language is affected as shown in screenshot below:
