Here, going to explain how to detect client browser languages using PHP.
As, we know today’s world application are coming in multi languages, As a developer, developing the web application with multi languages support is little challenging for us, anyway we have many plugins and extensions are available for solving this issues. If you want to do without using any plugins or extension use this code to easily get the client browser default language.

/* Detect Browser langagues using PHP */function tbs_get_client_browser_lang( $checklanguages, $default= "en" ){if( isset( $_SERVER['HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE'] ) ){
$langs = explode( ',', $_SERVER['HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE'] );
foreach ( $lang as $value) {
$getlang = substr( $value, 0,2 );
if( in_array( $getlang, $checklanguages ) ){
return $getlang;
}//Return default.
return $default;

I have used this code for many project and tested well.
I would thank to my organisation TechBrise Solution for providing such great environment to read and research.
