Configuring language settings in text predictions

Updated on May 17, 2024

Define the languages to use with your text prediction and control how the prediction detects languages in an analyzed document. For example, you can enable a fallback language in case your text prediction does not detect the language when analyzing content that is written in multiple languages.

You can also configure a spell checker to categorize the text with a greater confidence score, making the analysis more accurate and reliable. The spell checker feature is available only for topic analysis. You can use English, Spanish, French, and German default dictionaries. You can also upload custom dictionaries that best suit your business needs. Each spell checker decision data rule can have multiple language dictionaries associated with it. Each dictionary decision data object has the following properties:
