Choose language based on browser setting

  • Choose language based on browser setting
  • Hi!

    We use in our project several language versions for the content in the frontend. Is there any way to have Sitefinity choose the language version automatically when a user navigates to the website based on the user's browser settings?

    In Sitefinity 3.7 I was able to set this in the web.config file, but I can't find any documentation on how this is done in Sitefinity 4.

    Best Regards,
    David Knittl
  • Hello David,

    Thank you for contacting Telerik Support.

    That's a tough one - yes we used to support this in 3.x, but for 4.0 you'll have to implement a custom handler to achieve this functionality.

    I hope this information helps. If you need any further help with this issue, please do not hesitate to contact me.

  • David,

    Hello again. Thank you for pointing out the need for such functionality. Just to let you know that I've logged it as a feature request and we'll be working on it. You can track it in PITS here.

  • Thanks for the answer and for logging it as a feature request!
  • Hi, I Have the same problem i want to display my site based on the browser language, I work with sitefinity 7.0.



  • Hi,

    Our colleague Jen Peleva has shared some recommendations and a sample approach to achieving this functionality by intercepting the user's first request, checking for their browser's culture, and redirecting to a specified URL. You can find more information about this suggestion discussed in this forum thread, hope you find it useful.
