Looking at the responses to the below post there is going to be an impressive and comprehensive list of different language translations.

I was thinking that some language adaptive website behaviour would also be impressive. Specifically -

Put the "preferred language for displaying pages" translation at the top of the list. One way of doing this is to inspect the http headers

Currently my preferred languages are

Accept-Language: en,ko;q=0.93,ja;q=0.86,zh;q=0.79,en-GB;q=0.71,ru;q=0.64,ar;q=0.57,fr;q=0.5,el;q=0.43,zh-CN;q=0.36,th;q=0.29,en-US;q=0.21,en-AU;q=0.14,zh-TW;q=0.07

So my priority list, reading from left to right, is currently

english, korean, japanese, chinese, british english, russian, arabic, french, greek, china chinese, thai, US english, australian english, taiwan chinese

Given my settings, the english version should appear at the top of the list


Accept-Language: ar,ko;q=0.93,ja;q=0.86,zh;q=0.79,en-GB;q=0.71,ru;q=0.64,ar;q=0.57,fr;q=0.5,el;q=0.43,zh-CN;q=0.36,th;q=0.29,en-US;q=0.21,en-AU;q=0.14,zh-TW;q=0.07

the arabic translation should appear at the top of the list

Dear all:

For our UA Use Case landing pages, we plan on having a simple message in as many languages as possible, so I hope that native speakers can help provide some additions to our list below:

Universal Acceptance is the concept that all domain names should be treated equally.

Universal Whakaae Ko te ariā e kia ōrite ingoa rohe katoa.

Acceptation universelle est le concept que tous les noms de domaine doivent être traités de manière égale.
