"Enum('_t('Objekt.KORTER');, _t('Objekt.MAJA');, _t('Objekt.ARIPIND');, _t('Objekt.SUVILA');, _t('Objekt.RIDAELAMU');, _t('Objekt.PAARISMAJA');, _t('Objekt.MAATYKK');')"

gives error:
184             case T_STRING:
185                switch($token[1]) {
186                   case 'true': $args[] = true; break;
187                   case 'false': $args[] = false; break;
188                   default: throw new Exception("Bad T_STRING arg '{$token[1]}'");

is it even possible to make translateable the enum and then the searchable field title

You can't have translations in Enums (as that would make the enum pretty useless). You have to pick a single language from the enum. If you want to translate the labels you can use if ($x = "Foo") .. $label = _t('FOO', 'Foo'); to translate it. Note you also can't use variables inside a _t() as that too would make things not work.

made it easier way used:
for search so i was able to made search template myself with costum code no need for securityID

and for enums added both languages in one enum they where only needed for filtered search.
