Both approaches result uncomfortable. Between the two I would choose the simple "No" one. (btw, I'm a native Spanish speaker). Why? Because if I just want to select "No" and for some reason didn't read the other button, when I see the button with the "No/No" I would tend to check if I'm missing something with the 2nd "No".

Obviously, they aren't consistent because as pointed out, the rest of the text isn't translated. I imagine to a Spanish speaking person, the Si/No buttons only offer definitive answers to a question they don't understand... involving their money! That is a bad user experience compared to English speaking folks with an eye for interface design that evokes a ...

If a site is dominated by broadcasting-style text, then subsequent language selection is pointless. This might be the reason for the sites you referring to to put the language selection into the footer: here the contents itself has barely text, or its texts address a limited audience (or are even translated automatically).

In this case, users who aren't reading in the default (first) language have the experience of clicking on a link to see the content they want (as in @dan1111's suggestion), but you avoid having to create and make available all the different ...


Display one language, but provide links for other translations. Given that HTML email is the norm, you need not treat it like a static document. Use the same interface that websites do, providing small links to switch to other languages. This will be much more visually pleasing than a single email with multiple translations in it. It will also give a ...
