    Question purpose to split website according to languages

    Hi,

    I would like to know the real purpose to split website according to languages.
    for example if a website includes english, german and french, 90% of website do the following thing:
    www.mywebsite.com/en/ (for english)
    www.mywebsite.com/de/ (for german)
    www.mywebsite.com/fr/ (for french)

    why do they not use dynamic language selection in order to have only 1 web site like www.mywebsite.com ?
    languages could be stored into js file or php file for example.

    M.

    I suspect that it will be a complex task to a search engine spider to index site with dynamically selected language. One day you can end up with you site listed only in French language and lost all traffic of English and German keywords.
    I'm creating trouble-free Apache, PHP, MySQL installer, WITSuite,
    and use it to setup my development environment.
    Demo, support, contact. Questions?
