There are a couple of Emacs Lisp packages for guessing the language
used automatically which work surprisingly well. Keeping some
information between session may help too - e.g., if you wrote your
last message to someone in language X, chances are you will use
language X next time too.

With effective heuristics, it may not be necessary to reserve a
prominement place in the UI for the language option - although it is
probably still necessary somewhere.

I found a couple of links:
