Redirection with Cookies

Hi there!

I have a big Problem with some javascript:
On a website, i want to paste some "confirm", if the
visitor's browserlanguage is not "de".
when he confirm, he'll be redirected to the english-translation of
this page.

to store this information, because it's ugly to ask on every single
visit, if he want to switch to the translation.
but i can't find out, why the script isn't working.

i please you to look at the source and answer me, if you have some
thanks, karl!

var Count = 0;
if (navigator.appName == 'Netscape')
{ var Language = navigator.language }
else {
var Language = navigator.browserLanguage
var cookies = document.cookie.split(/; /);
for(var i = 0; i < cookies.length; i++)
cookies[i] = cookies[i].split(/=/);
cookies[i][1] = unescape(cookies[i][1]);
if(cookies[i][0] == 'Count') Count = cookies[i][1];
if(cookies[i][0] == 'Language') Language = cookies[i][1];
if(cookies[i][0] == 'Benutzer') Benutzer = cookies[i][1];

//Here comes the Problem:
//if 1st time here (count = 0) AND language = de
//I tried a few methods but the script isn't working

if (Count = 0 && Language.indexOf('de') > -1)
var Benutzer=confirm ("Your " + navigator.appName + " Language
is " + Language + ".\n\Would you like to switch to the English
Version?\n\-Translated by Babelfish-")
if (Benutzer==true)
Benutzer = window.location="http://world.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_load?url=http%3A%2F%2Fmembers.chello.at%2Fst efan.szeiler&lp=de_en";
else { Benutzer = window.location="#"; }


//Expire of Cookies in 1 year

var Datum = new Date();
Datum.setFullYear(Datum.getFullYear() + 1);
var expires = "expires=" + Datum.toGMTString();

//Cookies write:

document.cookie = "Count=" + escape(Count) + "; " + expires;
document.cookie = "Language=" + escape(Language) + "; " + expires;
document.cookie = "Benutzer=" + escape(Benutzer) + "; " + expires;
// Ende -->

FullYear is not always available; why not use the shorter

Datum.setMonth(Datum.getMonth() + 12);
