The software modules carrying out document classification are based on taxonomies. The taxonomy is the set of categories that can be detected by the software module.

To date, the API has one classification software module based the iptc taxonomy. Other taxonomies may be added in the future.

iptc corresponds to the categories of the Media Topics taxonomy.

A classification software module can support multiple languages. The table below shows currently supported languages across the taxonomies.

You must specify both the taxonomy and the language in the URL of classification resources (instructions can be found in the reference section). In the same section you'll find the description of API resources and the available taxonomies and the languages they support.

For the list of categories of each taxonomy, see the reference section page.
