    Is there structured data for language/location menus?


    I'm working on a website where we'll have a menu option that allows users to change their location/language. I wanted to find out if there's any structured data markup I need to consider for a menu type like this.

    I'm already planning to use the rel="alternate" and hreflang meta data at a page level. It'd be great to hear about any other regional/multilingual SEO considerations. Thanks!

    HI Peter,

    the only things would be Thing > Property > availableLanguage

    There is also
    sameAs URL URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Freebase page, or official website.

    but I'm pretty sure they are not meant to be used this way
    with rel alternate and proper language tags you should be good to go.

    Tags which you mentioned are enough for structured data. This is the best way when you want to tell search engine that you want to show same content in different language for your audience from different regions.
