There are several language-related issues to be aware of:
1) When a surfer opens any tournament on the TS webserver, we attempt
to respond with a page in a language close to each user's native
language. A norwegian surfer will see the norwegian pages, an german
surfer will see the german pages etc. If no good language match can be
found, we default to english. This happen automatically without any
effort from your or the surfer's part. The mechanism behind this is
the default language selected in the surfer's web browser. If a surfer
doesn't get his expected/native language, it is probably because his
web brower is misconfigured. For recent versions of internet explorer,
this setting is under "tools" - "internet options" - "Languages". In
there, he can add languages. Make sure the native language is first on
this list. This will affect many web pages on the internet.
2) Then again, a surfer can override the language by clicking the
flags if this for some reason doesn't work.
3) The above applies to all pages where the content is generated by
TS. The editable pages (Welcome, bulletins, commercial spots) is
written by YOU, the organiser, so obviously you will have to write the
translations yourself if you want multiple language versions of these
pages. Here's one way to do it: While inside the editor (that is,
where you edit the welcome page), you can switch language by using the
flags. Next time you save, the content will be associated with that
4) Finally, to answer what you really asked ;-) .... YES you can
override the language in the url like this:
the LANG codes are currently casesensitive. You winn find the codes in
the language list in language settings as described in 1)
