I'm trying to adapt the .htaccess so that german is sent to a specific URL and all other clients are sent to another URL.

Right now I'm trying something like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Language} ^de [NC]
RewriteRule ^$ /home [L,R=301]
RewriteRule ^$ /home-en [L,R=301]

Unfortunatly it's not working. Would anyone know why?

Thanks for a feedback.

I would just put PHP code in the INIT function of your home page

public function init() {


// redirect or set a session var, which tells the page to loads in different versions of text
