I have a multi lingual site and everything works fine exept the translation of the login form.

I use SS 2.4.7 with the following config:

Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'Translatable');
Object::add_extension('SiteConfig', 'Translatable');

I need the users to be able to login on the front end, so I created a link to /Security/login. But whatever locale the site currently is, the login form is always displayed in german. Even if I add the locale to the link e.g. /Security/login?locale=en_EN the login form always is in german.
Is there a possibility to get Security translated as well? or am I just doing something wrong?

Thank youvery much for your help...

simon_w had a solution for this, thanks again!

Translatable loads the locale automatically, i18n doesn't. To get the page loaded in the correct locale, you have to add the following in you _config ():

if(!empty($_GET['locale'])) i18n::set_locale($_GET['locale']);

Security loads the content in a fake page. In that case you can check the ID to be <0.

if ($this->ID < 0) {
	if(!empty($_GET['locale'])) i18n::set_locale($_GET['locale']);

It's not the perfect solution and I had to sub class Security and MemberLoginForm to rewrite all the links that didn't include the locale, but it works so far.
