WebPurify does NOT automatically detect the language of text submitted to the service. You must define the language of the submitted text in your request.

If you wish to use WebPurify for a foreign language you simply need to add the OPTIONAL parameter lang to your WebPurify service calls. lang is the 2 letter language abbreviation: Spanish (sp), Arabic (ar), French (fr), Italian (it), and Portuguese (pt). If lang is not defined, it will default to English.

For Enterprise Customers:
You may specify multiple languages per request (ex: lang=en,sp,it,fr) and the submitted text will be checked against each of these languages. Clients with Standard and Plugin-in licenses must only specify one language per license.

Please note that as the number of languages specified increases, response time will increase as well.

Please report any issues to: support@webpurify.com
