    Is it possible to have a script that will automatically translate my website to the proper language according to where the user is located in the world ?

    I know there is the Google translator code but I don't want that because the user has to choose the language. I want my site to automatically show the proper language instantly according to the Geo Located IP.

    I think you would be better looking for a script that redirected to a subdomain for each language ie espanol.mysite.com . Translating on the fly would be a resource hog and you would nt always get the best translation.


    If you have pre-translated pages then you will also get the benefits of ranking for that languages keywords.


    Once you have the other languages set up you should be able to redirect via htaccess or possible javascript . Multi geo cpa offers do similar so I'm sure someone here knows the best scripts for that. Might be better redirecting based off the language set of the browser than the ip, then your not assuming a language soley on ip.
