Two types of techniques are usually adopted in language differentiation: token matching and statistical analysis. In this paper we present a method which uses a combined analysis of several discriminating statistical features for the differentiation between European and oriental language scripts. When applied to more than 23 languages, it has proved to be effective in classifying documents printed in these different scripts. Copyright © 1997 IEEE.
