This is definitely something i would like also, the option for the board to display in the preferred language from the browser, with the limitation from the language pack installed.
I made a hack in phpBB2 will look at doing the same for phpBB3 but IMO it shoud be standard on the board, display by language preference.

Well, I implemented this feature within the session.php of phpBB3.0-RC4. My intension was to let the user decide the language before entering the board, so I rather implemented this using a GET-variable and a cookie. As soon as the user is logged in, his/her settings are overwriting my hack.

Basically I am not a phpBB hacker, but it's working so far, except for one little bug I couldn't fix, yet: The localized images are still appearing in the default language.

I have no idea for what reason it doesn't display the correct images for "New Topic", "Reply", etc.. Maybe some more experienced phpBB coders could help here.
