What feature should be changed? Please provide the URL of the feature if possible.
I noticed this on the live website as well. When a user arrives at the main home/index page the Languages menu item is not shown. It's only when you start clicking around the website does the Languages menu item show. 

Personally, if I wanted to change the language the website is showing in I would want to have that ability right from the home/index page. And I would want to know right from the home page that I can do something like that.

What problems would this solve?
I found it a bit confusing to have the Languages menu item just show up somewhere else in the website, but not on the home page. I immediately wondered why I didn't see it on the home page. 

Usually all major menu features are on the home page so that is what people are used too seeing. It gives users a glance at the functionality and info on the webpage from the start. So, when a major feature like the Languages menu item is not on the home page, but shows up most everywhere else it's kind of inconsistent and a bit confusing. 

Who would use this?
Anyone wanting to change the language of the website.

What would users see?
They would see an option to change the language on the home/index page.

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
It would be immediately noticed that they have the option to change the language of the website on the home/index page. 

Is there anything else we should know?
Hey Jules, there is a language switcher at the bottom of the page.

Hi Kadir.

Funny, I didn't see the one at the bottom. However, for consistency there needs to be the Languages drop down menu at the top of the page still. It makes for a better user experience.
