I have a problem with my animation on a multilingual page.

the jquery animation is put together with

<% control ChildrenOf(about) %>$image<% end_control %>.

I probably need an alternative for ChildrenOf(about) as I want to make it work on the German page also but can't come up with one.

Anyone already dealt with that problem?

Thanks! reepoman

Assuming you've enabled Translatable for your site, probably the supersimplest way would be someting like this (untested):

<% if Locale = de_DE %>
  <% control ChildrenOf(germanAbout) %>$image<% end_control %>
<% else %>
  <% control ChildrenOf(about) %>$image<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

Else you'd have to create a Page_Controller method returning the right set of children based on the Locale.
