Language recognizer/identifier/guesser is the basic application used by humans to identify the language of a text document. It takes simply a file as input and after processing its text, decides the language of text document with precision using LIJ-I, LIJ-II and LIJ-III. LIJ-I results in poor accuracy and strengthen with the use of LIJ-II which is further boosted towards a higher level of accuracy with the use of LIJ-III. It also helps in calculating the probability of digrams and the average percentages of accuracy. LIJ-I considers the complete character sets of each language while the LIJ-II considers only the difference. A JAVA based language recognizer is developed and presented in this paper in detail.
