  It is process the process of transforming our website content language into users browsers default language. Either this process is automatic based on visitors location or we externally giving opportunity for visitors by external plugin where user chooses his language.

If you provide this feature on your website  if any visitor came from other country if he don’t understand English. Then using this feature he can translate into his native language.
