    Can languages fallback to each other?

    I have a site with two languages, English and Welsh. We have a requirement that some pages may only exist in one language - in which case that version of the page should show regardless of which language the front-end user is using. English is the default, neither language is mandatory. English is the fallback of Welsh, but I am unable to set Welsh as a fallback of English. I just get the white cross in the green box when I try to save. Can anyone advise why this is please?

    How's your site set up? Are you using Vorto to manage the content for different languages?

    We're on Umbraco 8 so we're using the out-of-the-box multi-language functionality

    I don't think you can have circular language fallbacks, otherwise if both were empty it would break the site.

    You should be able to write code to check the other language. https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/getting-started/design/Rendering-Content/#using-fall-back-methods may be of use but it doesnt look like it covers your use case.
