I'm pretty new to SilverStripe and – unfortunately – I don't know much about php . Still I'd like to include a small link on every page, that allows the user to display the current site in another language. I know that it's pretty similar to the Language Chooser widget, but I'd prefer not to use a widget, also because I want to display images (flags) as links right next to the menu items.
Any help how I can do this?
Thanks in advance.
p.s. I tried something like this:

$url = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']; 
$page = $_SERVER['php_SELF']; 
echo "<a href='http://".$url.$page."&lang=XY' ><img src='http://URL'></a><a href='http://".$url.$page."&lang=XY'><img src='http://IMG'></a>"

but well, where do you place it? and is this even correct?
