Set the Language Code of an HTML Document in Java

Setting the language code is a simple but important step when constructing an HTML document. The language code is a two-letter combination such as ‘en’ for English, or ‘es’ for Spanish, and provides search engines with key information for delivering optimal results. By utilizing the following API in Java, you will be able to instantly set the language code of an HTML document without any extra hassle.

Let’s start by adding a reference to the repository in pom.xml:


Next, we can add a reference to the dependency:


Once the installation is complete, we are ready to input our file or file URL, language code, and API key into the below example code:

// Import classes:
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiClient;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.ApiException;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.Configuration;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.invoker.auth.*;
//import com.cloudmersive.client.EditHtmlApi;

If you need to obtain an API key, you can do so by registering for a free account on the Cloudmersive website; this provides 800 monthly calls across any of our APIs.
