This plugin is a WPML addon that detects the user country and shows his country flag next to the available languages.
You can also redirect visitors based on visitor country if user locale translation exists. E.g if you have a language with locale code
en_US, the code can be devided into the language part ‘en’ and the geographical part ‘US’.
This plugin has an option to redirect according to the geographical parts of the locale codes of the languages served on your WPML translated site.
The Native WPML language switcher CSS for the footer and widget are used to preserve brand consistency.
