Polylang – Country Detection

Description

Polylang is a fantastic plugin to make WordPress multilingual. The Polylang extension enables you to detect the preferred language according on the country.

If your website contains 2 different locales with the same language (e.g. de_DE for German/German and de_AT for German/Austria) then Polylang automatically sets the language according to the browser settings.

Austrian website visitors who have set their operating system / browser to Germany (e.g. the Devices was buyed in Germany) will always be redirected to de_DE.

This Plugin detects the preferred language according on the visitors country and will set the language correct to de_AT.

FAQ

How does the country detection works?

The plugin detects the country with the IP Geolocation API (https://ip-api.com/).
If no available language by country is found, the language of the browser is preferred. (https://polylang.pro/doc/detect-the-browser-preferred-language/)
