Description

In bug 1032825 we learned that http://geo.mozilla.org can be used to do client side geolocation to a country level.

This is the implementation bug for language suggestion based on locale, to try and catch people who have an English version of Firefox, but want a localized SUMO.

This should reduce the bounce rate in the target countries.

Kadir is to provide the target language/country pairs to feed this.

This will probably be 3 points. In addition, we should make sure to get these strings localized in the correct languages before we deploy this.
Pretty sure this is mythmon's baby.

Kadir, is the check for wrong languages supposed to happen on every page? Or only on pages people are likely to enter on, like the front page and landing pages? I implemented it on every page, but :r1cky pointed out maybe that isn't what we wanted.

Yes, let's add this to every page. The initial test was on the product landing page only, because it was simpler to test.
