Show language according to IP?

Post by Regin » Thu Nov 21, 2013 9:02 pm

Hi

I have produced a multi-lingual website, but now my client would like the ebglish language to show up, if a visitor from, say England or the US visits the site, and German if someone from Germany visits the site.

She writes:
"We usually prefer the same language on one page, not multilanguages. I mean, for example, when an English reader is visiting the homepage, only English is there."

So.. is this at all possible - and if - how?

Regards
Regin

You can use the automatic language switch by browser setting, what you can find in the language filter plugin.
Or you use some services like maxmind.com to get country for users ip, you can include this in a system plugin than.

If your clients only care for displayed language, you should go with browser setting from the plugin.

Ah... clever.. I think Ill go for the language filter. It sets a cookie based on browser language. That should do the trick. Ought to. Thanks!
