Yes,@MRWweb, here in Canada, we know the problem of having one flag and two official languages :-). The very first post on WPGlobus.com, quoted by Sarah Gooding above, said exactly that:

> A user may have a non-trivial combination of residence, language and currency. Some countries are multilingual, so clicking on a country flag is not always enough.

Country outlines? I would probably recognize Italy and New Zealand :-) And Russia won't fit into any icon :-)))

Jokes aside, after working on a big e-commerce global sites, we had it enough: one of our largest projects had content and currencies for en_US/CA/GB/AU, fr_FR/CA, de_.... es_... you name it. And, as you can imagine, we had to deal with "almost the same" French in France and Quebec, but different currencies and different pricing models for Europe and North America.

We are working hard on the "Ideal Globalization System". Living in the real world, we have to publish a "Far From Being Ideal Plugin". We need something to start with, and we believe that WPGlobus, even as it is today, is a good start. It's compact comparing to the competition, works much faster and will serve us as a good basis for the future development.

Your comments are highly appreciated, please post more!

Thank you!
