Language URL Format

I dont know how to determine the language in which viewers view content

1- Different languages ​​in directories ((http: // localhost: 8888 / Brazil% 20Show% 20Tourism / -, http: // localhost: 8888 / Brazil% 20Show% 20Tourism / en / - English))
** It seems that the different languages ​​in the directories do not work. Details

2- A different domain by language

3 - Language name added as a parameter (http: // localhost: 8888 / Brazil% 20Show% 20Tourism? Lang = en - English)
* I check this option

So, wich options should be better?

Please verify that your Home page has been fully translated(100% translation) and saved.

if there is no available translation the language switcher will not show.

A way to get around this if you wish to display the switcher when no translation is available is to go to WPML=>Languages=> enable "Link to the home of language for missing translations".

Let me know your results.
