A system and method are disclosed for classifying videos based on a Language Importance Score (LIS) indicating how important it is to understand a certain language to be able to understand a given video. The method extracts video features directly from the video after it has been uploaded rather than by analysing viewing patterns from logs. The level of LIS is classified as LOW, MID, or HIGH based on the degree of ease for a user to understand. Global/multilingual video platforms can use this system to optimize search to improve viewer experience effectively.
