Is there a global variable that I can call as an IF statement within my header.php template to load up a different HTML (menu graphics), depending on the language chosen?

If X=english, use this batch of html, else use this other batch of html.

Thanks! Great plug in!

You can use the ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE constant together with php if statements.

<?php if(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='en'): ?>
….english content here ….
<?php elseif(ICL_LANGUAGE_CODE=='fr'): ?>
…french content here…
<?php endif;?>
