The new import bookmarklet

damn but I’m impressed by that little gizmo! How does it know that a German language article goes in my German section, but a Russian language articles goes in my Russian section? Especially when both kinds of articles tend to include a fair sprinkling of English terms?

Learning a language for special purposes is now a whole lot easier!

Interesting question. Hopefully, we get an answer. I’m really curious.

It is done via a google service, you can try it yourself:


{“responseData”: {“language”:“de”,“isReliable”:false,“confidence”:0.27574477}, “responseDetails”: null, “responseStatus”: 200}

→ German我爱你


{“responseData”: {“language”:“zh-CN”,“isReliable”:false,“confidence”:0.09720373}, “responseDetails”: null, “responseStatus”: 200}
