You're not saying much about how you generate the page, if it's view renderings, or so.

But in general, you can append the desired language code to any url. Use the sc_lang query parameter. http://yourhost.com/yoururl?sc_lang=en-MA.


This is really about getting the item in its different language versions, then getting the URL for each

I'll assume the item only has those 2 languages. I'll also assume that your site is configured to embed the language in the URL

First lets get the item in each language:

Item tempItem = Sitecore.Context.Database.GetItem(tempID);
foreach (var itemLanguage in tempItem.Languages)
    var item = tempItem.Database.GetItem(tempItem.ID, itemLanguage);
    if (item.Versions.Count > 0)
        // do something 

(Code copy/pasted from Mark Cassidy's answer to a related question)

Now that you have the item in its differnt languages you can use this code for each one
