The paper presents a novel sentence-based language classifier that accepts a sentence as input and produces a confidence value for each target language. The proposed classifier incorporates Unicode based features and a neural network. The three features Unicode, exclusive Unicode and word matching score are extracted and fed to a neural network for obtaining a final confidence value. The word matching score is calculated by matching words in an input sentence against a common word list for each target language. In a common word list, the most frequently used words for each language are statistically collected and a database is created. The preliminary experiments were performed using test samples from web documents for languages such as English, German, Polish, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. The classification accuracy of 98.88% has been achieved on a small database.
