in thread Language Guess from IP

Here's a simple receipt on Doing It Right: return the site in the default language - usually English. Put a link to change to the guessed language and one to go to a language menu on the page; or put a language select dropdown on the page, and default it to the guessed language.

That way, the viewer's own language is just one click away if it's guessed correctly and they want it.

Makeshifts last the longest.
