English term or phrase: backward compatibility
Definition from Andrew Quilley:
The ability of new technology to work with older technology. For example, a new version of an application may use a different file format. If it is backward compatible, it will still be able to open files created with the previous version.

Example sentence(s):
  • As a developer, you need to be aware of backward compatibility issues on older devices—do you want to allow your application to run on all devices, or just those running newer software? Google Inc.
  • Preserving backward compatibility often requires that you drag historical baggage along, and in interpreted languages like PHP, this comes at a significant performance cost. Dries Buytaert
  • Developers and clients who strive for backward compatibility inevitably choose a "baseline browser" (say, Netscape 3) beyond which they will make no effort. Digital Web Magazine
