i18n is broken in SilverStripe 2.3.0 and 2.3.1. It should be fixed in 2.3.2.

There are workarounds though:
or just use SilverStripe 2.2.x

Broken, yes, but Translatable is broken, and not i18n. i18n seems to work fine in 2.3.1, at least for me, see my i18n posts about in the thread you're referring to for an alternative solution to the broken Translatable.
