English term or phrase: Please select a language...
I have a website. This website will be posted in English, Germany, Spanish, and Italian. I have other people making the German, Spanish and Italian version for me - but I have to make the HOME PAGE. So on the home page I'll have the links to the other languages.

Seleziona la lingua...
Explanation:
If you need the string "Please select the language..." translated into Italian.

We do not normally use a form including the "Please" as you do in English.
It sounds easily awkward or forced.
