Hi CC fans,
I need a word of advice.
I’m currently building a a website in english / german.
I’m doupting if i should use some sort of auto detect language script so visitors are automaticly re-directed to the aproppriate site.
Or if i should make the selection in the index…
Does anyone know the pro an cons? Does anyone know a script that would do that?
Your help is highliy appriciated!!
Normally the safest bet would be to do both… so it directs them to the default page depending on their current geolocation and if for some reason they don’t want to have it in that language they have the possibility of changing it.
But unless you’re planning on adding a wide range of languages in the near future then any script on here would be overkill. It also seems kind of pointless to do this for only 2 languages, so having a dropdown menu or some other form of navigation for language selection is a perfectly viable solution and from a users point of view, as long as it’s easy to find then it’s all good.
