    Fallback Language Behavior

    I was testing out the multiple languages and must say that this feature is very cool. I am a bit confused on how the fallback is supposed to work though. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I have a documentCollection(CarList) which contains a Document Type (Car).

    I have set up the variations.

    When I add a new car to the list, it will show up on the English version of the site. When I switch to German, which I have to set up to fall back to English, the content will not show up on the site.

    What I Expected: With English as a fallback, I would expect the English translation to show up on the site.

    What happens: No content is present. This is most likely because in the admin when I go in to publish, I clearly see that there is no content translated.

    I guess it boils down to how one feels about content being displayed. If there is no translation, I contend that it should be displayed so that if the user wants a translation, they could translate it via dictionary or other method.

    I worked a little on this and contributed some documentation that you can find here (make sure to filter for V8). Not had a play with the final V8 release yet but as far as I know what's there is still how the fall-back languages are intended to be used.

    Okay. That explains a lot. I am used to the @model.Property MVC convention and didn't realize the @Model.Value served that purpose.
