How do I translate a tab like this?


default tabs (like Main / Meta) translated in sapphire/lang/*.php
$lang['ru_RU']['SiteTree']['TABMAIN'] = 'translation';

Seach didn't help.

$fields->addToTab('Root.' . _t('SiteTree.TABCONTENT', 'Content') . '.' . _t('MyFile.MYNEWTAB', 'MyNewTab'));

Should do it, in your getCMSFields() method.

Nope, doesn't work

It uses a translated string for both tab ID and tab text

<a id="tab-Root_Content_set_" href="/admin/&amp;flush=1#Root_Content_set_">МойТаб</a>

ID is stripped after set_ so any translated tab will have this same ID.

Compare to this perfectly translated and functional:

<a id="tab-Root_Content_set_Metadata" href="/admin/&amp;flush=1#Root_Content_set_Metadata">Мета-данные</a>

It's created in SuteTree.php:
$tabMain =new Tab('Main', .......
$tabMain->setTitle(_t('SiteTree.TABMAIN', "Main"));

First line sets both ID & Title, second line overrides the Title with translated text.

I guss I should do the same somehow... but dunno how...

This could work

$tab = $fields->findOrMakeTab('Root.Content.Program');
$tab->setTitle(_t('SiteTree.MYTABNAME', "MyTab"));
$fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Content.Program', $tablefield );

but findOrMakeTab method of FieldSet is protected and I don't want ho hack the core
