Text Data Preparation
Text Analytics Toolbox™ includes tools for processing raw text from sources such as equipment logs, news feeds, surveys, operator reports, and social media. Use these tools to extract text from popular file formats, preprocess raw text, extract individual words or multiword phrases (n-grams), convert text into numerical representations, and build statistical models. For an example showing how to get started, see Prepare Text Data for Analysis.
Text Analytics Toolbox supports the languages English, Japanese, German, and Korean. Most Text Analytics Toolbox functions work with text from other languages. For more information, see Language Considerations.
