To a switch displayed, you should do at least 2 store view for the current web site. It can do in admin in System > Manage Stores.


Check this tutorial to create multiple store


By default there will be 1 store inside 1 website in Magento.

From admin you need to create new stores, then store switcher will come in frontend.


The languages switcher does not appear unless you have 2 store under the current website you are viewing. Since you have only one store view for each website this does not appear. If you want to display for single store then copy languages.phtml from




And find <?php if(count($this->getStores())>1): ?> and <?php endif; ?> just comment these two line . Now you are able to see the languages switcher.

Note : I Have not tested this code but i hope it will work.
