If you are on the Windows platform, look at mlang.dll, and at the
IMultiLanguage2 and IMultiLanguage3 APIs, which provide this service. As
others have noted you will get false detections with too little or
ambiguous data, but you may be quite surprised at just how accurate this
detection is (sometimes just one character outside of the "ASCII"
repertoire), since there is language frequency data used as well as
merely encoding rules.
