Summary14136: Question display no longer uses Default language if translation missing - Version 3.14.9+180917

For a long time it has been the case that for multi-lingual surveys, if a translation of question text was not entered into the system, the display of the question would revert to the Default language.
In Version 3.14.9+180917 this is broken so that now if there is no translation of a question in language X, then when language X is selected, no question text is displayed.

Steps To Reproduce

Create a survey with 2 or more languages.
Create a question with text in Default language. Do not enter any question text for the alternative language.
Preview or Execute the survey.
Switch to the alternative language (or preview/execute in alternative language)
No text is displayed.

Respondent is unable to answer.

When adding language to a survey : default language string are copied.
But : there are never if question text is empty : get default language.

And i really think it MUST not be done.
