Country text please

Post by pszilard » Fri Mar 07, 2008 11:33 am

Thanks for a great tool. I don't know all the flags to recognise, so I would like an option to show the name of the country (in English). Is this possible?

Hi pszilard,

This is already possible: If you hover your mouse over the flag you should get a tooltip which gives the country name.

For example, if you're on the BBC news website and move your mouse to the flag the tooltip will say: ( is in United Kingdom

In fact, for the 237 countries listed in our database, we have a complete set of localizations of their names into all 23 currently supported languages. (not to mention other locations and GUI strings) A while back I even added a sample of various locale's tooltips to the set of preview images on AMO, if you'd like to check that out. ;)

Additionally, if you goto Flagfox options, then select "Preview Icons', it'll give you a grid of all available country flags, each of which you may hover over to get a tooltip of the country's name translated into the current browser language.
