    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. may be of use but it doesnt look like it covers your use case.
