Magento Store Switcher extension allows merchants to automatically detect visitors location and redirect them to a relevant store view. The relevant store view can have localized products, content, prices, currency, language etc. The customers can also manually change the store view by using the drop down placed in the header / footer of the store. This extension comes with 45 days money back guarantee, free lifetime support and upgrades. In order to change the location of the store switcher you can use the following code: you will need to find "page.xml" file at 'app/design/frontend/base/default/layout' directory. The path may be different if you are using a third party theme. Open file with text editor and make the following changings. You will just need to relocate the location of this store switcher code from "page/html_footer" to "page/html_header". Once you do this you will be able to access the store switcher from header. Now locate header.phtml file and open in text editor. Add the following code where you want to display your store switcher drop down.
