Languages

Brandwatch Analytics can identify and deliver conversations in 44 languages, and we’re constantly adding more to our crawling capabilities.

We distinguish between ‘basic’ and ‘full’ support for languages, which determines what level of coverage and analysis we provide for each one. Some of our competitors claim to offer 100s of languages, but we feel this is misleading as in these instances the vast majority of the languages on offer will lack proper functionality.

Below is a definition of basic and full support, as well as a table showing all of the languages we cover. You can also choose to collect all global mentions regardless of language with our ‘ignore language’ option.

Full:

  • Full Twitter coverage
  • Extensive non-Twitter coverage including local sites
  • Fully optimized topic extraction and sentiment analysis
  • Our in-house Experts can provide services (Query writing, analysis, markup, etc.) in all of these languages

Basic:

  • Full Twitter coverage
  • Non-Twitter coverage is possible but not guaranteed
  • No sentiment analysis
  • Limited topic analysis
  • Our in-house Experts can provide services (Query writing, analysis, markup, etc.) in some of these languages.
