[SITE] Belguim IP shows only French version?

When a Belgium IP address goes to the English version of the WP.org site I shows that WordPress is also in French. But we have also Dutch & German in this country. So I was thinking: why not display the message as follows:

'click here if you want WordPress in another language' and this takes you to a page where all languages are listed. That way a user that is at holidays in China easily find his French or German version.

Those messages are shown based on your browser's language settings, not your IP or location. So if you add Dutch and German to your browser's accepted languages, they'll show up too (if they're available).

Well, I use Google Chrome (17.0.942.0 Beta) in Dutch... and it displays that WP is also in French but it doesn't show it is in Dutch.

Replying to jonezjea:

it displays that WP is also in French but it doesn't show it is in Dutch.

Confirmed. I've added Dutch (nl), German (de) and French (fr) locales in Firefox options, and WordPress.org only shows "WordPress is also available in Deutsch and Français."
