Name: decide on the name;

You can change all the previous store settings after saving, except Web Site.
Store: choose a store for which you create the view;

Now you have created a localized version of your main store. Thereafter, you need to install Magento 2 language pack. It performs full translations for Community and Enterprise editions (like files for standard phrases, email templates, etc.). Besides, you can use the GeoIP Redirect extension. It allows you to automatically redirect visitors to a localized store view based on their IP addresses. Alternatively, users will have to switch to a needed localized version manually.
