I'm trying to add languages to my wordpress driven website and i installed xili-languages plugin. Unfortunately it uses lang param to differentiate between languages and i rather have seen something like http://domain.com/cn/article-in-chinese/ rather than http://domain.com/article-in-chinese/?lang=cn

If you're not forced to use xili-language, I can suggest Polylang which is a very promising plugin. –  gyo May 8 '13 at 8:03

You would like to write: http://domain.com/cn/article-in-chinese/ so that wordpress understand : http://domain.com/article-in-chinese/?lang=cn.

I think it will be easier to use http://domain.com/article-in-chinese/lang/cn/. You need to write a new rule and a new tag in WP rewrite rules (Wordpress write those rules in your htaccess) with the functions add_rewrite_rules() and add_rewrite_tag().
