Seems to be Czech May 2, 2002

or Slovak or even something from former Yugoslavia, I\'m not sure. Try to ask a Czech colleague on ProZ, perhaps she/he knows



Kind regards

100% CZECH without diacritics May 17, 2002

Whoever wrote the text left out the diacritics as they sometimes can cause problems (in emails, etc.) and make the text illegible.

Online Language Identification Tools May 23, 2002

Hi,



There are a few statistical tools online that are useful for trying to figure out what language a given text is in.



Here\'s a pretty good one, which handles 70 languages:



http://odur.let.rug.nl/~vannoord/TextCat/Demo/



However, it does depend on character sets, so the fact that this Czech passage was written without accents resulted in misidentifying the language as Slovak.



Caveat surfer.



I have the beginnings of a page of links to such resources on my wiki, at

Cheers,

Pat

definitely Czech May 24, 2002

Yes, the diacritics are missing, but I would not say that text is illegible. I (non-native speaker) understand without any difficulties. The same thing often happens with Hungarian. Hungarian uses roughly the same amount of diacritics as CZech. EVen without diacritics, the text is legible (well, if you are used to reading such texts, that is.)

Back to the original question: it is definitely Czech (and not Slovak, and even less so Serbo-Croatian)
