comment UI to “change user interface language”?
The idea of copying relevant info is to make sure the actual answer does not get lost. I would guess that stackexchange.com is going to live a bit longer than flagsarenotlanguages.com.

uxrepo.com seems to be really unstable today. Keep hitting the refresh button and it will work sometimes. I'll add an another URL for the icon.

comment UI to “change user interface language”?
That's a fine link and I marked your answer as accepted. I agree with Midas that the answer should contain the most important parts copied ("quoted") here in case the original site is not available in the future. I read the article as "put a globe icon on the top right corner of the site and a list of all supported languages with each language name spelled in its on language at the bottom of the page". The language list is going to look like wikipedia left sidebar (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy#p-lang-label) in case you have lots of localizations and feature accessibility is a must...

Explicitly mention that non-icon UI is an acceptable choice

I agree that this question is similar. The possible duplicate question is stricly about icon only design. I'm open to other solutions, too. I'll reword to make this difference more clear.

comment What's a good alternative to flags for depicting internationalisation as an option?
How do you implement the "User changes the language" part if user's native language is Arabic and the user interface is currently in Chinese? Assume that the user is not aware that the currently displayed language is Chinese and he surely does not know that its language code is "ch". See also: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/93221/…

comment Why are the profile pictures rounded nowadays?
I think that if the users were able to create interesting profile icons by themselves, we would be still seeing rectangular profile pictures. However, the reality is that 99.999% of users are not able to modify their profile picture so rounding the corners is the easiest automated fix for that.

comment Why is 13px Arial font the web standard?
I think that nowadays browsers come with 16px default because of legacy content. The 16px default is sensible because you can read "too big" text but you cannot read too small text. As a result, it is safe to be on the big side if a proper default cannot be set for everybody. The most important preference that browsers should ask for is "which font size you'd prefer to read?" -- sadly, no browser does that.

comment Why is 13px Arial font the web standard?
While the eye movement stuff is true, I don't think a web site should use 13px instead of default size because of that. It all depends on pixel size as viewed by the end user--think about an user viewing the screen from 60 cm away and another user viewing the same screen from 90 cm away. The size visible in fovea is not the same for both users. Just use 1em for the body text and you'll be fine. Trying to do otherwise is like calling your local TV station and saying that your TV sounds too loud. They'll tell you to adjust the TV volume. For web sites: just let the user set the right size.
