Hi, I have notied some strange behaviour within Silverstripe 3.1

I created some kind of Translation for a Page the following way:

class Page extends SiteTree {

	private static $db = array(
            'Title_en' => "Varchar(255)",
            'Content_en' => "HTMLText"
        public function getTitle(){
            if(i18n::get_locale() == 'de_DE'){
                return $this->Title;
                return $this->Title_en;
        public function getContent(){
            if(i18n::get_locale() == 'de_DE'){
                return $this->Content;
                return $this->Content_en;

This throws a Notice, as of "$this->Title" isn't known within getTitle(), but why?

Anyone any Ideas?

This is because PHP stops infinite recursion on magic methods. $this->Title would call $this->getTitle() which would call $this->Title which would call $this->getTitle() and so on.

Instead, use $this->getField('Title')
