“Language Selector List” is a Multilist type field which is built on Sitecore 8.2, once installed you can use this field type which enables you to select from the available language versions for that Site where that field has been used instead of displaying all languages from sitecore/system/Languages.

Please feel free to reach out to me at for any comments /issues/ and any requests.

    We sometimes come across the requirements where we have to select from the available languages versions which has been added to the context site.

    For example- there could be total 10 languages under system languages folder and out of 10 say only 3 languages has been added to specific site (multi-lingual).

    For instance we work on any module where we need to select only few languages from the total languages available for that site (multi-lingual), we don’t have any specific field type that can populate site specific languages out of the box, one example could be language switcher component where content authors wants to show only 2 languages to end users even for that site 3 language versions exists.

    This modules helps to solve the same issue- and populates dynamically all language versions available for that site, it doesn’t populates all the languages from system languages instead take only those language versions which has been added as part of context site(based on different language versions available for home page).

    This assumes that language versions that has been added to home page will be available to other inner pages as well.

    In case of multisite setup, this custom field type has taken habitat site as a reference and expects rootPath value to be unique for all sites added to the same instance.
