Sitecore Package: https://github.com/jbluemink/Sitecore-Language-Editor-Warning/tree/master/Package

Uninstall
The package only contain 2 files no Sitecore items, so easy to uninstall, delete:
/App_Config/Include/Language.Editor.Warning.config
/bin/Stockpick.LanguageWarning.dll

Use with SXA

Open the SXA Site manager, To open go to the Desktop, the SXA Site Manger is Below “PowerShell Toolbox” from the Application Start button.

Open the website you want to configure and add a propertie “altLanguage” in the Other Properties with the languages you want, exclude the language configured in the Language Field, the Default Language.

I think Language configuration and this warning should be OOTB in the Sitecore SXA, like it vote on: https://sitecorecommunity.uservoice.com/forums/338385-product-general-feedback/suggestions/34452205-language-configuration-for-sxa know the intent languages can also help for SEO meta data and sitemap.xml and language switches and things like that.

Use the new root item config.

Create a field call "Languages" in the site root Item, Type Multilist, Source /sitecore/system/Languages, Shared.
