Hi, i'm working on my HomePage pagetyp and wondering how to make the datafields i added translateable. I'm new to silverstripe and took a look to the tutorials, but i feel that i dont really get the sense of it.

This is my code so far (HomePage.php):

class HomePage extends Page {

static $db = array(
'Name1' => 'Varchar(20)'

static $has_one = array(
static $icon = "mysite/images/treeicons/home";

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextField('Name1'), 'Content');

return $fields;

Can anybody help?

I shortened the code i posted above. Its basicly just about making Name1 translateable.
I took some further look to this forum and found out that this problems appears to be a well known and beeing discussed here:

Cause this Topic is a bit older I'm wondering if there is any solution which came along SS v2.2.3. Need your help please...
