Enabling Multi-Language Sentiment Analysis

Have you seen how easy it is to integrate sentiment analysis in your Tableau dashboard – if your text is in English?

Until now the sentiment package for R only worked with English text. Today, I released version 1.0 of the sentiment package that features multi-language support. In order to perform sentiment analysis with German text, just add the parameter language="german" as shown in this example:

The new code allows you to add any language. So far, I started to prepare German sentiment files. French and Spanish are coming…

    The new multi-language support sounds awesome. Could you provide the german lexicon file as well? When I run “classify_emotions” R tells me:
    Error in read.table(file = file, header = header, sep = sep, quote = quote, :
    no lines available in input
    In addition: Warning message:
    In file(file, “rt”) :
    file(“”) only supports open = “w+” and open = “w+b”: using the former
