I am trying implement TranslatableModelAdmin to work with SS 2.4.1 - anyone can help? I can't find the URL anymore, but here is a SVN Link.

The extension somehow does not create new translations.

So far I have added the following code to fix occuring errors:
1) TranslatableModelAdmin.php init function replace


$vars = array('SECURITY_ID' => Session::get('SecurityID'));
Requirements::javascriptTemplate('translatablemodeladmin/javascript/TranslatableModelAdmin.js', $vars);

2) TranslatableModelAdmin.js add to line 8

	url += '&SecurityID=' + $SECURITY_ID;

After this you should be able to load and submit the created "Translations" Tab in the ModelAdmin without errors. Unfortunately it still won't create a new translation. Somehow 'createtranslation' in the TranslatableModelAdmin_RecordController is not called. Fixing this by adding in TranslatableModelAdmin_RecordController EditForm (before first if statement)


will not help.

Somehow the function createtranslation in the RecordController must be fixed, I have tried different things, but did not succeed.

Anyone can help me on this?

Would be awesome and I could finally commit my changes to SVN.
