The Transcribe documentation about the language_link tag:

Using the entry_id parameter in conjunction with the has_entry parameter will only output links for languages that have entries related to the entry_id passed in

I can't get it to work, and no example to be found. The documentation mixes variables and tag parameters, it's not clear.

Anybody here that knows how to only show a language link when the current viewed entry has an entry for that language?

Tom from EE Harbor helped me out, here's his answer:

{exp:channel:entries channel="name" ....}

    {exp:transcribe:language_links has_entry="yes" entry_id="{entry_id}" parse="inward"}
            <select name="lang">
                    <option value="{abbreviation}"{if current} selected="selected"{/if}>{name}</option>


Please note, you will need to place the language_links tags inside the channel:entries tags.

This fixed it for me, I didn't place the code inside the channel:entries tag.
