Using automatic language selection

To get automatic language selection, you must tell your web browser what your preferred language is. How you can do that depends on the browser you are using.

Mozilla Firefox version 0.9 and newer
      Edit -> Preferences -> General -> Languages
Microsoft Windows
      Tools -> Options -> General -> Languages
In older version you have to go to about:config and change the value of intl.accept_languages.
Mozilla / Netscape 4.x and newer
      Edit -> Preferences -> Navigator -> Languages
Note: with Netscape 4.x you need to make sure you select the language from the available choices. A number of people reported problems because they typed in the language by hand.
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Microsoft Windows
      Tools (or View or Extras) -> Internet Options -> (General) Languages
      Edit -> Preferences -> Web Browser -> Language/Fonts
