Is it possible to assign different field source for the different language?

For example, I have a sample template in with samplefield.

  • samplefield has a field source as /sitecore/content/Home-en for English.
  • samplefield has field source as /sitecore/content/Home-ot for Other Languages.

If not, how can we achieve this?

You can achieve the requirement by either implementing a custom field or a custom token. I would tend to use the custom token

Custom Token

Below is the code snippet you can use to implement the custom token

public class CustomTokenReplacer : ExpandInitialFieldValueProcessor
    private const string Token = "$customtoken";

    public override void Process(ExpandInitialFieldValueArgs args)
      Assert.ArgumentNotNull(args, "args");

      // TODO: Add your own custom token replacement logic here...

Then you patch the newly created token via the config file

<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/">
        <processor type="YourNamespace, YourAssembly" patch:after="processor[@type='type=Sitecore.Pipelines.ExpandInitialFieldValue.ReplaceVariables, Sitecore.Kernel']"/>

Note that in the datasource on your template, you should use the token you defined. Example: $customtoken
