Decide on how to get the user language settings
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Possible solutions are, but not limited to:

  • use the HTTP header settings as given by the browser (which would mean that the language is actually switched in the browser chrome)
  • use the babel boxes from the user pages (as Wikidata, several disadvantages, don't exist for logged out users, hard to discover, expensive)
  • extend user preferences and use the values from there
  • use different URLs for different languages (e.g. wikifunctions.org/en vs wikifunctions.org/hr or en.wikifunction.org vs hr.wikifunctions.org)

These have different advantages and disadvantages and are also not mutually exclusive. We should decide on which one to use and implement them.

Event Timeline

Is this still an issue? On the frontend at least, I have the user's current languages available to me.
