Someone else already answered that the link to switch languages is on  
the main page.

However, I'd like to suggest that the current language is not handled  
via a cookie but rather as part of the URL. That would make it  
possible for external sites to link to the right language and also  
google would be able to find these other languages. If I configure  
google to only return results in German and search for Wine I get  
German Wikipedia entries as a result but not a link to in  
German. At least not on the first results page.

That's just a missing translation.
