Google Translate may help you but it's far from perfect. 
Differentiating between, say, Indic languages that use the Devanagari 
script (e.g. Hindi, Sanskrit) seems beyond it. It can usually 
distinguish between Italian and German, but not always between 
Portugese and Spanish. Humans can't always ell either. For very short 
passages it's even possible to confuse English and French.

Looking at the first few paragraphs of the article will probably give 
much better results.
