Do you need to know the language in which the user has entered the text?
Or do you just need the text?

If you need to know the language, you probably need to provide a HTML
select field with different options for the different languages, so that
the user can tell you.

Otherwise, you just need a HTML text input box on the page, and to be
very careful with your character encodings all the way through the
application and the HTML pages.  I'd suggest standardising on UTF-8 as
your character encoding for all pages and all text.  The user's browser,
keyboard etc. has the appropriate keyboard settings to allow them to
enter text in their own language.

Or have I misunderstood the question?
