Are you in Greece at the moment ??
« on: 24 Nov, 2008, 05:45:56 »
Are you in greece at the moment but speak both Greek and English??

If so, can you tell me whether the information on my site appears in Greek? - http://www.avenuemembersclub.co.uk/language_test.php

I am testing my website to see if it changes its language for people in different countries.
Thanks for your help :)

It did not work for me mate.
OS: Windows XP
Browser: Firefox 3.0.4
Language Settings for PC: Greek

I tried the site also from another Windows XP PC using Internet Explorer and it still displayed in English.

THIS IS WHAT CAME UP when I clicked the link you gave:

If you have ever changed the language of a website that you have visited, you would have noticed that some websites prefer to ask you from which country you are from before changing the language and others prefer to ask you directly what language you wish to display the website. However, there is also a code that you can insert in a PHP file that will automatically detect the server that is being used by the visitor, and hence apply the changes in the language accordingly.

Is the text above written in your own language? i.e. if you are german, is it written in german or does it appear as english

Thanks for looking guys.

Obviously my code isnt working. Are you both in greece?

Because the website works dependant on the server.
If your internet server is in greece, the website ill detect it as a greek server and translate in greek.

Would u guys mind checking the site again when i get the code sorted :)

If we were outside Greece, we would not even bothat rambo :) .... Greek location, with internet going through local Greek servers and traffic was not being routed through somewhere else :)

Let us know when you will have the new code up and running and we will try it again (Were the rest of the languages working with the existing code?)

Sorry, but in every case, all I see is English text. (No French, No Greek). I am located in Greece - Greek enabled on XP pro - and tested with Firefox 3.0.4 and I.E. 7.
I'm not an expert in this, but had a look at your code and it doesn't seem to reference another page.
