Detect language from IP address
#4
I'd much rather use the "Accept-Language" http header than trying to translate an IP to a language.

I am from the United States, but visit Japan on a business trip. While I understand some spoken Japanese, I can't read Kanji.
A niece from Brazil visits my wife and I in the USA, but she doesn't' understand English.
Someone is using an open vpn in a different country to bypass their government's country-wide firewall.
How many people live in the USA who don't speak English?
In Brazil I met a man who moved their from Japan just a week prior and spoke zero Portuguese.

Users should configure their browsers to indicate their preferred language.

Another suggestion would be include a language selector towards the top of the page instead of scrolling all the way down.
