Building a country and language detection pipeline

Building a country and language detection pipeline | Pinterest | Scoop.it
A Pin saved to Pinterest is much more than just an image. Each of the 75 billion Pins saved is a visual bookmark with dozens of signals, such as the website it originated from, as well as its country and language of origin. As more than half of all Pinners are outside the U.S., we rely heavily on language and country detection to help Pinners discover and engage with local ideas. Here we’ll share how we detect and use language and country signals across Pinterest—in search, home feed, Related Pins and topics—to improve the experience for Pinners and drive engagement internationally.
