You don't seem to actually be asking a question here, so I'll give a couple of pointers for you to work from.

This Microsoft blog post gives a brief introduction to the out-of-the-box localisation available for Sharepoint 2010.

You will have to develop something (possibly part of one of your core masterpages) that will determine the users desired language (I'd suggest going with browser strings if available over the IP-address based), and set the language for the session to that.

You will need to remember to properly localise any custom features you build (web parts, content types, etc.). Again Microsoft have a useful article giving an introduction.
