This one is on-line service, which will probably be too slow. I'm 
thinking about a library, which can be installed on server and called 
locally via FFI/DLLCC. And location/language should be determined only 
once (lazily at the first use) and stored in a session. There are 
already instvars for language and country. Also not that language can be 
  guessed from web request's header Accept-language.

I already looked on free library GeoIP from http://www.maxmind.com/.

Best regards
