Spanish and other language html links

Platform(s), such as mobile, website, API, other: Web

URLs (aka web addresses) of any pages, if relevant: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/santa-barbara-botanic-garden-biodiversity-project

Description of need:
Describe the iNaturalist community need that your requested feature addresses. Include screenshots, URLs, and other details to help us all understand the issue.
I am using iNaturalist as a digital sign in a botanic garden. We have a button on the sign that links to recent observations made in the garden. I’m wondering if it’s possible to add something to the url that will take you directly to the Spanish version of the site instead of having to click on the language selection at the bottom pull down tab.

Feature request details:
In detail, describe the feature you are requesting. This includes its functionality, where the feature is implemented, and what it might look like. Screenshots or mock-ups are helpful. The idea is to have a concrete and actionable request which the community can discuss and vote on. It might change through discussion, but it’s much easier to iterate and talk about something specific.

I know some websites have urls that include “es” or “fr” that can point to a translated version of a page. That way I could paste that link in the Spanish version of the digital sign and it would take Spanish speakers directly to the translated page.

tack on this to the url: ?locale=es
