Enable language fallback for SXA sites

Abstract

Enable item-level or field-level fallback on SXA sites.

In a multilanguage solution, you can use the language fallback functionality to control for which items you want to reuse content and which items you want to translate. To use the language fallback functionality for SXA sites, you enable either item-level or field-level fallback on the relevant sites. 

You must enable the attributes on the shell and on each of the relevant websites.

To enable fallback on item or field level:

  1. Go to site definition item.

  2. In the Language section, select the checkboxes: Enable item language fallback and/or Enable field language fallback.

    Note

    If you used previous versions of SXA and defined language fallback in the Other Properties field, this setting takes priority over the settings in the Language section.
