Text classification is one of the most useful Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks as it can solve a wide range of business problems. Many of these problems usually involve structuring business information like emails, chat conversations, social media, support tickets, documents, and beyond.
Instead of spending precious time manually sorting through business data, you can use text classification to speed up this process and get more done in less time.
In this post, we take a look at some text classification examples and introduce you to some no-code text classification tools that are easy to get started with.
Let's get the ball rolling!
One of the most popular text classification applications is sentiment analysis, a type of classifier used for understanding if a given text is talking positively or negatively about a given subject.
From marketing and sales to customer service and product, sentiment analysis can be used for a number of business tasks:

Another example of text classification used for a wide variety of tasks is language detection. These classifiers are able to detect the language used in text data and perform various tasks, for example:
Language detection is often a first step before text is analyzed. Think about how machine translation tools work – when we input the wrong language, they’re able to detect the correct language of a text and categorize it accordingly. In business, a text analysis workflow using a language detection model might look something like this:
Try out MonkeyLearn's language classifier, trained to detect a total of 49 different languages in text:
Filtering fraud and abuse is also possible thanks to text classification. These classifiers are used to detect bullying and trolling on social networks, and unwanted content on the internet.
Using a topic classifier, for example, you can track specific topics that are mentioned on the internet or train it to recognize specific language and categorize it as abusive.

Sorting through product reviews, NPS comments, and survey responses in order to detect trends and themes is a very manual and time-consuming process. But fortunately, this is something a machine is really good at.
You can use aspect-based sentiment analysis to automatically classify feedback by topic and sentiment, so you can home in on topics that your customers are mentioning most often and discover how they are talking about them.

Support teams spend hours every month processing support tickets to tag common questions, keep track of unresolved bugs, or understand what customers are most confused about. Text classification enables support teams to save hours of manual data processing.
It also increases their efficiency by allowing them to work on the priority cases first, automatically route messages to appropriate teammates, and trigger auto responses based on classifications such as topic, urgency, and sentiment.
Try out this urgency classifier, below, to see how it categorizes incoming pieces of text as urgent or not urgent:
Text classification saves you time and helps businesses detect urgent issues right away, which is essential when customers expect faster and more effective responses.
