I would like to know how the following scenario would be achievable. I would like to create module, combine the site content functionality and dataobject relationship functions (also, include language translations, if possible).

URL references:
- Create a module (
- Dataobject Relationship (

In essence, [Q1] how would I be able to extract the basic functionality of the site content like the default fields such as the Title, Navigation Label and Meta Information and use it in combination with a custom module created on the CMS? In addition, for language translation abilities, [Q2] how would I go about implementing it for the Dataobject Relationship such as for a Complex Table or Many Many Complex Table.

The new ModelAdmin controller (coming up in our 2.3 release) might be what you're looking for?

It doesn't support translations yet, though, although that shouldn't be too hard to implement once the Translatable datamodel changes find their way into a release. Help appreciated ;)
