Hi Tomae.

I'm far from an expert but one way I'm thinking of is to edit your Navigation.ss, replace the dynamic menu generating code by a static menu with conditional lang checks :
<% if current_lang = en %>...<% else %>...<% end_if %>

Best regards.

Well a better solutions would be to have " SHOW IN MENU " for each language.

I am not sure how this can be done but this seems like a more positive solutions to the problem above.

@Tomae: Are you using multilingual content with Silverstripe 2.3+ ?

If so, how did you manage this? Well documented problems translatable and 2.3 http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/3517

I am following the alternative method http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=recipes:multilingual_content

Added content fields for each language and converted the language manually ...............

Finally i got the solution .............
just put a space in other language's navigation label .............
this is how u can disable particular menu item if u dont require it for other languages..................

Cheers!!
