Visitors should be able to choose which language they wish to read to view the profile. I don´t believe it should be automated by browser identification, but that there should be a selection of links, ie.:

View this profile in: English / Lang2 / Lang3

This way, a visitor might even compare several versions (or, at least those that pertain to a potential assignment) to evaluate a translator´s skill.

Great idea Jul 19, 2006

Great idea! I wanted to translate my profile, but couldn't figure out how to show both languages.

I also think that the visitors should be let to choose the language they want to view the profile in. That's why instead of localizing the content, I decided to add a custom tab with the Polish version of my main Profile page (Jęz. polski).
