How can users be directed to a localized community based on language browser version?

I am building a Spanish category nested under our current English Community. Is there any way to direct users to the Spanish version of the Community if their browser is set to Spanish? Additionally, how can we create a language drop-down for the current Community so that users who have their browser set to English but speak Spanish can select their preferred language?

Thanks.

@anic - You need to use the page intialization script for this. There are a lot of examples of this around, here is one you can look for reference, and this for specific case.

 

I hope this helps.

Similarly, redirection from Spanish domain should directly open main website in Spanish version.

Thanks very much for that information.

@VarunGrazitti I don't see anything about adding a dropdown in that page initialization script.

@Davi22s I'm hoping to pass value in SSO Token over to the community so it knows to display in Spanish for the user if they registered and chose Spanish on our non community domain. Are you suggesting that people have separate domains and separate communities?

@anic How did you end up solving it? We're going to do SSO for registered users and guests from our other domain using the URL addition but for guests we need a language selector if they're coming from search engine or from direct traffic.

Good morning,

Have you figured out how to do this?

 

We wanted to do the same in our Community. 

 

Thank you!
