Hi guys,

I've got a simple staffmember dataobject. evrything works fine. But my client wantet the labels and vlaues to be translated. It's possible to get the atributes of the do translated by the static $field_label function. The DOM is translated by a single line in the _config.php (i18n::include_locale_file('dataobject_manager', 'de_DE');) . But there is a question left: How to translate the name of the dataobject itself? In the Backend, on the DOM, the "Add Staffmember" button should show "Mitarbeiter hinzufügen".

My code

class StaffMember extends DataObject
	static $db = array (
		'Anrede' => "Enum('Herr, Frau')", 
		'Vorname' => 'Varchar(100)',
		'Name' => 'Varchar(255)',
		'Role' => 'Varchar(100)',
		'Phone' => 'Varchar(50)',
		'Mail' => 'Varchar(50)',
 		'Location' => "Enum('Weißenfels, Zwickau')", 
		'Description' => 'Text',
		'IsActive' => 'Boolean',
		'ShowOnContactPage' => 'Boolean'
	//1:n Beziehungen -> Staffmember hat eine Seite und ein Portraitbild
	static $has_one = array (
		'StaffPage' => 'StaffPage',
		'Photo' => 'Image'
	//Standardwerte für die Dropdowns im DOM	
	static $defaults = array(
      'Anrede' => 'Herr',
      'Location' => 'Weißenfels',
      'IsActive' => 'true',
      'ShowOnContactPage' => 'false'

	//Fields to show in the DOM
	//Todo checkbox in DOM für Anzeige auf der Kontaktseite
	static $summary_fields = array(
		'Vorname' => 'Vorname',  
		'Name' => 'Name',
		'Location' => 'Location',
		'IsActive' => 'IsActive',
		'ShowOnContactPage' => 'ShowOnContactPage'
	static $field_labels = array(
		'StaffMember' => 'Mitarbeiter',
		'Role' => 'Stellenbeschreibung',
		'Phone' => 'Telefon',
		'Mail' => 'Mailadresse',
 		'Location' => 'Zweigstelle', 
		'Description' => 'Mitarbeiteraussage',
		'IsActive' => 'aktiver Mitarbeiter',
		'ShowOnContactPage' => 'Kontaktseitenanzeige',



Thanks for your help. Pipifix

You can use $yourDOM->setAddTitle(_t('MyTranslation'));
