Here, we have some employees with their Windows in Portuguese, others have it in English.

Our main website is displayed in the same language as Windows' language. But the employees want the website to be displayed in Portuguese. I have found some ways to change the language displayed on the website, like using the Windows settings, or browser settings.

The problem is they only want to change our website's language, not the whole windows or websites in their browser.

Is there any way to achieve this?

  • If you own the website you could edit the website so you can change the language from the site itself instead of from the browser – Eric F Jun 18 '19 at 15:54

    Some sites you can simply add a language descriptor at the end - domain.com/page/es/vs domain.com/page/en/ You'd have to sort that out at the site itself. – Tetsujin Jun 18 '19 at 16:16

The "comments" link is broken. So I'll need to post this as an answer.

You should be able to add/install additional Language support files (language packs) to the (windows) box, or boxes that run your web server(s). You should also ensure that your web server generates utf8 pages. As I recall, if your windows web server has multi-language support added/installed. It will provide an option for your visitors to view the site in their chosen language. In fact. If properly setup; will detect, and automatically choose the correct language, based on what their (web) browser tells the server.
