I'm building a blog with posts in different languages. I'm thinking about doing it like wikipedia, which is :
On the front page, show a list of languages with at least one post.
If a post is translated, show a link to each translation.
I'm thinking of adding a topbar do redirect users, for instance, that come across the English version when they only speak French :
My question is two-part :
- Is this a good way to do it or will it annoy users ? (I will remember the user's choice in a cookie)
- How simple is it to find the user's language, based on his browser and/or his IP address ?
