Language icon

January 1, 2010

Reading the most popular posts of 2009 from the interesting blog Global by design, I've found one article about the need for a standard language change / choose icon.

Many icons have become quite standard in the web world: rss icon, share icons, etc.. But when it comes to choose language every website create a new way of doing it. Sometimes is a flag, an world icon, a map or hundreds more.

There is now a new iniciative called Language Icon from OMC that proposes this icon to choose languages. What do you think about it? Does it make you to choose your language in a website?
