I'm trying to make a page like this:
If a user change the language pushing the text (bottom left) the page
I notice that after the page the link add the ?chglng=en
It's possible and convenient to write the text for the pages in a
separate xml file?
Thanks in advance
Re: Multilanguage Site
That's easy (relatively speaking). Maintaining it isn't.
Don't. Using language codes alone as links to different language versions is
surely not sufficient. Besides, three-letter codes are less commonly known
than two-letter codes.
For a small set of languages, the best approach is to make each link contain
the name of the site in that language, and put the language name or code in
parentheses after the link, for example.

If he ever finds it.
Hardly. You need someone to translate it. And to maintain the translation
when the primary copy is modified.
From outside, we cannot tell what the browser does with the URL. (Educated
guesses are possible.)
It's possible, but hardly convenient for a site consisting of a few pages
