    Redirect Customers to the Other Store with the Correct Language in Magento

    Our clients often ask us to make their multilanguage stores automatically redirect customers to the store that has the language of user’s browser. If it’s not possible to define the language or locale is not supported by the store, they want their customers to see the default store.

    Model of realization is pretty simple – we check if browser delivers HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE header, find out what languages are preferable for user, compare browser language and languages supported by the store, and redirect customer to the relevant store.

    Basically, there is, of course, available a default report on used coupons under the Reports – Sales – Coupons section.  But we have decided to push the limits and go further.  First of all, we will start with creating a module with a custom grid (check here for more details about creating a module).
