Translations of sub-pages only visible if parent page is translated?

In the backend i'm using pages which are not visible on the frontend to structure my content. These pages have sub-pages which are visible in the frontend. That works pretty well.

These 'parent' pages are in the default language (english)
If i now translate a sub-page to another language (german/french/etc.) they are not reachable in the frontend. I have to do a translation of the invisible parent-page to see the translated sub-page in the frontend as well.

Both the parent-pages and it's sub-pages are of a custom type derived from the default "Page" type.

Is there something I forgot to do?

I enabled translation using Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'Translatable'); in the mysite/_config.php
I also tried to enable translation not globally but only in my derived page type for the sub-pages but that didn't work as well.

thanks for any input,
