I am simply developing a HTML website page, on this page, there are two flag images(USA and Poland) which is used as a language selection of the page for users.

I am wondering, for this single web page development (without any backend system), is there any efficient way to implement the page localization(that's display the page in different language) based on the flag selection from user?

Thank you in advance for any help.

No. You need two copies of the page, one in each language. Unless you use a third party machine translation, as for example Google Translate. I assume Polish-English is as bad as Swedish-English.

Just turn the flag icon into a link.

If you don't know how, the go see the FAQ at http://htmlhelp.com/faq/html/images.html#linked-image

Maybe the OP wants to know how to organize all the pages on the site?
