Another advantage of putting the language in the URI is that if
you want to refer to a specific language version of the page, you
can use that link.

Another is that you do not need to keep any session data. You can
implement the “select language” functionality by putting
“[English] [German] [French]” etc links somewhere at the top
right of the page that simply link to the other-language versions
of the same page – and simply by clicking on one of them, the
user has “changed” their “session”.

Ultimately you should not need any session storage for anything.
