A mathematical simple proof can answe the question.
If one wish to know if two text are written in teh same language
only it is necessary count the number of symbols in each text and
make a simple statistical chi-2 test to obtain the answer!!!
( All, all text in a concrete languages present a very similar phonemic
ocurrences. The same is true for non phonemic inscriptions).
