What would be cool would be if this followed IW links, so if you switch EN->FR, you end up on frwiki on the related article, not just bounce to home.

The need for this is more obvious when you are trying to add QR Codes to a museum. A site like wikipedia supports multiple languages but at the moment you need a QR code for each language.

While English speakers might often be happy to stay with the English Wikipedia, it is highly important for users of all other Wikipedias who often need to switch to the English Wikipedia (or some other one) if the article in their own language is not yet sufficient.

Nice to add stickiness - user returns to same language site on next visit, possibly through use of cookies.

This feature will be launching shortly. Ideally this week as a beta.

COol! I use wikipedia also as translator for food (I'm waiter in a restaurant with international guests) etc, so I'll be very happy!

Feature launched in beta :
Comment 11 Sumana Harihareswara 2011-11-07 23:19:01 UTC
Removing keyword so newbie devs don't think this is something to fix/add.  Will likely get resolved this week.
Comment 12 Tomasz Finc 2012-01-19 12:29:25 UTC
Feature has been in place for a while now.
