This plugin is an add-on for WPML (WordPress Multilingual Plugin). It detects the browser language of your user and shows a popup if his browser language is different from the default language of your website. There your user can change the language. Once the user selects a language, the information is stored in a cookie. When he visits the startpage again, he automatically gets redirected to the language he selected.
Smart display behavior with browser language detection
This plugin detects the browser language of your user. The pop-up only appears, if the user’s browser language is different from the default language of your website.
We will only redirect the user after he has chosen a language in the popup. So there is no automatic redirection without user interaction. As it is unclear, how this would affect your SEO.
Stores user selection in a cookie
Once the user selects a language, the information is stored in a cookie. This cookie is used to redirect the user to his preferred language.
Redirects user the next time he visits your website
When he visits the startpage again, he automatically gets redirected to the language he selected the last time.
