we have two stores, one for german user and one for englisch user, so we need a plugin that automaticly switch the store if the browser language is german or englisch to the different stores or switch by different locations.
Solved! Go to the solution
With custom script you can achieve this.
For language based, script will auto detect the browser language and redirect user accordingly or you can use a popup cookies based which will ask for user preference and redirect user accordingly.
If you need me to implement this, you can drop me and email and we'll discuss further.
This is an accepted solution.
This is Ren from the Shopify support team, thanks for your post! We happen to have a large selection of plug-ins available that assist in geolocation for your stores.
These apps all work to redirect your customers to localized stores based on their IP address. I will list some options below with varying features and prices to consider.
Geolocation Redirects is an option that comes with a 7-day free trial and only cost $6.99 to use monthly.
appears to be a highly customizable options with unique templates for showing IP relevant information and includes a long list of features including announcement bar, country blocker and currency switcher.
I recommend reviewing the apps available and taking advantage of the free trials to determine which app best suits your business needs. Hope that helps!

There is another solution worth checking out: Geo Targetly
When the language is changed, it adds a query parameter to the URL, for example, exampleshop.com?lang=en or exampleshop.com?lang=germany.
The particular Geo Redirect tool can detect your website's visitors' locations(like country/state/city) by their IPs and auto direct them to correct URLs. For example, if you visitor is in Germany, and he goes to examplyshop.com, it will auto direct him to exampleshop.com?lang=germany.
The tool is easy to set and integrate. You can set up redirecting rules within only a few steps. No code is necessary by yourself. The service will generate code for you to add to your website. Shopify platform is perfectly supported.
Hope it helps!
