Another idea: select the two (maybe more) languages to select from:
 * Language country selected on the main page;
 * Prefered language from the web browser.

That's an idea.

At least we know have ideas how to find street names for countries
like Belgium where all names are systematically in 2 or 3 languages
(FR, NL and DE).

I think we should first do that before digging into the multiple
languages map index. :-)

Thank you for the ideas Jeroen.
