Our products often refer to our websites to provide the user with additional information. If possible we want to show this information in the same language the user is using the product. But our products might be translated to language that is not available on our website. In this case the user currently gets a 404 page. Ideally we would like to fallback to English. All websites are always available in English and we assume this is the most likely understood fallback language. It's not feasible to introduce a dependency between the product and the website so that the product can decide which language to use.

What to change

If a website was requested in a locale that is not supported redirect to English instead.

Unsure about the module, assuming Infrastructure for now.
