You can use a tool like Advanced Language Manipulation Tool to switch the master language of a site, but not sure if that's actually want you want to do. Could you give is some more details about your current setup and what you want to accomplish?

Sounds like he wants to not actually change the master language, but show content in a language relevant to the visitor's location or other criteria.

Seems like a classic case for using Visitor Groups in CMS 6 R2.

Have a look at this blog post and see if this is what you need:

I would take a look at the Globalization tech-note and see if that can get you on the right track. Feel free to post questions here, but we need some more context to be able to help.

When user is visiting the Page, at Global.asax file in Application_Start() method you can get the page id from the URL. 

And try to get the PageURL based on the Page id and Currnet user Language. 

If that page is not available in that particular language you can redirect it to Fallback page.
