Link ( use country flags which are links via "hrefs" in the image code..use gifs ) each "subject"page to the other "same subject but different language" pages..

The idea was just one page to explain what they offer and to tell them to contact for further asistence as they can get translators.

I definitely would not do that. If you use an American flag for the English version, you'll alienate people in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, etc. if you use a U.K. flag for English, you'll most likely alienate all the non-U.K. English speakers. (Not to mention all the U.S. people who don't know what a U.K. flag looks like. Note- as an American, I get to knock Americans who are internationally challenged.)
Then create translations for that one page into different languages and link from that page to the various languages. For the 100 pages not being translated, leave them alone.
The "trick" is to use more than just the one flag for "English"..use multiple flags depending if you are trying to hit US or UK ( AU or NZ or CA will "usually" use UK English ) ..BTW other languages also have their "variants"..Mexican "SP" is not the same as Spanish "SP" ( not always Castilan[sic ?]* ..Spain has its regions too ;)) nor is it the same as Argentinian "SP" etc etc..
I agree with you, that is a good idea,
however normally in spain the only sites that serve other languages than castilan are spanish national site, as a + and respect for regional languages, as 99% of the spanish persons speak castilan, if they have another language they have 2 languages, castilan as mother language and the regional language.
