    Setting PageType to BlogEntry Link to this post

    I'm currently trying to force the user to create blogentries in german and english simultaneously, since we use the blog widget for our news.
    The problem is that I want to link german and english version of the news, so I'm using createTranslation(). Works well so far if it weren't for two huge problems:

    1. The PageType of the translated blogentry object is "none". How can I change this?
    2. Despite having the english texts saved, the german ones are displayed in both versions.

    Here's the code I'm using:

    function postblog($data, $form) {
          if(!Permission::check('BLOGMANAGEMENT')) return Security::permissionFailure();

          Cookie::set("BlogHolder_Name", $data['Author']);
          $blogentry = false;
          if(isset($data['ID']) && $data['ID']) {
             $blogentry = DataObject::get_by_id("BlogEntry", $data['ID']);
          if(!$blogentry) {
             $blogentry = new BlogEntry();
          if(i18n::get_locale() === "de_DE") {
             $blogentry->Content = $form->datafieldByName('BlogPost')->dataValue();
             $blogentry->Title = $form->datafieldByName('Title')->dataValue();
          } else if (i18n::get_locale() === "en_US") {
             $blogentry->Content = $form->datafieldByName('BlogPostEN')->dataValue();
             $blogentry->Title = $form->datafieldByName('TitleEN')->dataValue();
          $blogentry->ParentID = $this->ID;
          $blogentry->Status = "Published";
          $blogentry->publish("Stage", "Live");
          $translatedBlogentry = new BlogEntry();
          //check current language and automatically choose the other one for
          //the translation.
          if(i18n::get_locale() === "de_DE") {
             $translatedBlogentry = $blogentry->createTranslation('en_US');
             $translateBlogentry->PageType = 'BlogEntry';
             $translatedBlogentry->Title = $form->datafieldByName('TitleEN')->dataValue();
             $translatedBlogentry->Content = $form->datafieldByName('BlogPostEN')->dataValue();
             $translatedBlogentry->ParentID = Translatable::get_one_by_locale('BlogHolder', ('en_US'))->ID;
          } else if (i18n::get_locale() === "en_US") {
             $translatedBlogentry = $blogentry->createTranslation('de_DE');
             $translateBlogentry->PageType = 'BlogEntry';
             $translatedBlogentry->Title = $form->datafieldByName('Title')->dataValue();
             $translatedBlogentry->Content = $form->datafieldByName('BlogPost')->dataValue();
             $translatedBlogentry->ParentID = Translatable::get_one_by_locale('BlogHolder', ('de_DE'))->ID;
          $translatedBlogentry->Status = "Published";
          $translatedBlogentry->publish("Stage", "Live");
