EPiServer multilingual detect language


I am adding a second language to a website. We would prefer if we have the pages in english and in swedish that the languages still has the same url, no language prefex. And that the user will get the content based on his browser language preference. Does anyone now if it is possible to do like this? Later we are going to implement EPiServer find so it is important that the solution for the languages will work properly with find. If anyone have a better solution on the problem that is also very welome.

you mean language selection is controlled by browser settings? should visitors be able to switch languages "on-fly" (while visiting one language go to another language version of the page)?

Yes, language should be controlled by browser settings. Yes, there will also be a language picker on the site to allow the user to select another language aswell

and for example if I do have a page in English ("en") - "page1" and I do have the same page but translated to Swedish ("sv") - "siden1", then following urls should work OOTB?

https://server/page1 - English page

https://server/siden1 - Swedish version

Preferebly, but is that does not work or is not EPiServer standard, I am fine with just

well, then this is out of the box. nothing to do here. you need to set preferred langauge for the domain mapping in admin section for the site. think that browser based detection was enabled already by default.
