There are many sites who redirect you automatically to a language by your physical location, and this could be easy in normal cases but in some cases this not the best option. Let’s say you are from South America but you are in a pleasure travel by China and you don’t know a single word of Chinese, but for any reason you want to go to whateveryouwanttoputhere.com and… Taraaa, is in Chinese.
The reason, if they track your location they can know where you are and intermediately redirect you to the Chinese version of the site… three seconds later you just quit the site because you don’t like the Chinese version. But if they have givento you a Select Your Language Page, you would have made just one more click and you’d be stay much longer on that site. That’s what we all want on our site keep our visitors.
I know this kind of options are normally related to flash sites and I know the design community is not a big fan of this sites, for problems like SEO, keywords, google rank, etc.. I personally love this kind of sites, because they are impressive and interactive, and normally it means: beautiful sites with big loading times for most of them. But their objective is totally different than a blog, or forum. And designers have worked on, to create this pages like any other page on the site even if is not the most visited, so they deserve to be shown and appreciated.
Just after I finished my post about Best Coming Soon Pages, I have the idea for this post and after some time digging deep on the net and after a big list with more than 200 I finally choose the 50 Best Select Your Language Pages that could inspired you. Must of people don’t really give them to much attention; so they hopefully give you some ideas for your next project or for your personal site, if you are thinking on making in different languages.
There are not ordered by preference, only by themes.
So let’s see this collection of 50 Best Select Your Language Pages.
