Language Fallback and Sitecore Dictionary

Sitecore CMS Dictionary is the best place to keep all texts that can be used across the site: "read more", "click here", etc. . It's internal architecture is a little unusual - it stores key/value pairs in the temp file  /{yourSiteRoot}/temp/dictionary.dat, which is updated during item:saved event(via the handler in web.config).
