Notes for Java programmers:
Wolfram Language interpreters do sophisticated semantic processing relying on linguistic information in the Wolfram Knowledgebase. Even with third-party libraries, this kind of functionality is not readily available for Java.
Notes for Python programmers:
Python does not have built-in natural language interpreters. Wolfram Language interpreters do sophisticated semantic processing, often relying on linguistic information in the Wolfram Knowledgebase. These interpreters can be used to process Python expressions through the Wolfram Client Library for Python.
Use Interpreter to interpret many types of natural language and other input:
Interpreter handles "semantic" types that require interpretation of meaning:
It also handles types that require computation:
Restricted lets you restrict allowed inputs (e.g. numbers only in a certain range).
