For example, because Arabic is partially localised, language fallback options could be either English, French, or both.

This particular multiple fallback feature is known as ‘chained fallback’ - that is, if a value isn’t found in the fallback language, Sitecore falls back to a third, fourth,  or fifth option, and so on…

For international websites on Sitecore 8.1, language fallback is a great enhancement.

Language Fallback is fully configurable on the granular level, whereby Sitecore items, fields and templates can have fallback enabled.

Key features:

  • Chained fallback
  • Granular fallback control of items and fields
  • Configurable site-level and template fields
  • Language fallback rules
  • Language selector indicates which languages have fallback versions enabled
  • Versions selector on a fallback item displays the corresponding message
