¿qué lenguaje usted está hablando?…

One of the joys of web surfing is finding oneself in out of the way places…  But sometimes those spots are so remote that one need a bit of assistance locating oneself.  Now, thanks to the good folks at LangID, help is at hand.

One simply types/pastes in the opaque text, and LangID identifies the language in which it’s written.

Muy bueno!
