I am struggling with the following "security/access control" problem:
I have a page "About Us" with a has_one() relationship to an Image. This image is uploaded via the CMS .

When I create a translation of "About Us" , the image is "copied" to the translated page and can be modified in each
translated version. How can I restrict this and make sure that editors can *not* change the image?

A workaround is to create a "invisible/dummy" page which contains data which are not translated but there
are many and it makes more sense to have the images stored with the other fields of the page.

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.
