I am trying to make the File class translatable so that i can translate the name of images (not the URL/Filename, but the more readable 'Title' of the image). adding the following line to _config.php does set up the DB schema and creates a File_translationgroups table however the Files & Assets section of the CMS does not change, and popups do not provide any way of entering in translations.

Object::add_extension('File', 'Translatable');

the other problem is that using an english locale, i cant enter special characters like ö into folder names.

I'd appreciate any suggestions,

thanks alot,

rebump… because I have no ideas but the interest for this feature to work. Could you please post an enhancement ticket in Trac?

entered enhancement ticket in track:

I know Ingo started a patch for CTF's with Translatable DataObjects as well as modelAdmin, and i have a hunch that this solution may be related.
