Hi, to redirect my international traffic to the apropriate target/language I am using a script in a html page wich is not running very well, in fact the script as follow just recognise the original language of the browser (the language in wich the browser was downloaded)
If someone can purpose a better script...
Thanks!

<script language="Javascript1.2">

function recup_lg()
{
var lgr;
if (verif_lg(navigator.userLanguage)) { lgr = verif_lg(navigator.userLanguage); }
else if (verif_lg(navigator.systemLanguage)) { lgr = verif_lg(navigator.systemLanguage); }
else if (verif_lg(navigator.browserLanguage)) { lgr = verif_lg(navigator.browserLanguage); }
else if (verif_lg(navigator.language)) { lgr = verif_lg(navigator.language); }
else { lgr = 'us'; }

return lgr;
}

function verif_lg(lg_tmp)
{
if(lg_tmp)
{
if(lg_tmp.indexOf('fr')!= -1) { return 'fr'; }
else if (lg_tmp.indexOf('en')!= -1) { return 'us'; }
else if (lg_tmp.indexOf('es')!= -1) { return 'es'; }
else if (lg_tmp.indexOf('pt')!= -1) { return 'pt'; }
else if (lg_tmp.indexOf('nl')!= -1) { return 'nl'; }
else if (lg_tmp.indexOf('de')!= -1) { return 'de'; }
else if (lg_tmp.indexOf('it')!= -1) { return 'it'; }
else { return ''; }
}
}

var lg_nav = recup_lg();

var url_redir;

if(lg_nav == 'fr') { url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else if (lg_nav == 'us'){ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else if (lg_nav == 'de'){ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else if (lg_nav == 'it'){ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else if (lg_nav == 'pt'){ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else if (lg_nav == 'es'){ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else if (lg_nav == 'nl'){ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }
else{ url_redir = 'http://website.com'; }

window.location = url_redir;
</script>
