Just last week we announced the availability of the Spanish adaptation of ANEW in GCAM, marking our first foray into scoring the emotional undercurrents of the non-English world. Just one week later we are excited to announce that all twelve language editions of Hedonometer.org's "happiness" score are now available in GCAM, allowing native scoring of the emotion of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Korean, Pashto, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu material.
For more information, visit the Hedonometer.org website or read the full paper describing the construction of the original lexicon. When using any of these scores, cite them as "Dodds PS, Harris KD, Kloumann IM, Bliss CA, Danforth CM (2011) Temporal Patterns of Happiness and Information in a Global Social Network: Hedonometrics and Twitter. PLoS ONE 6(12): e26752. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0026752."
