I have created a view that alphabetically lists all nodes of type "glossary entry". A glossary with many terms. Besides German I need the glossary in English, too. The translation has worked great using Entity Translation module. I only have the problem that the alphabetical order of the English version is not correct. The English glossary has the same sort order than the German (original) version:

German version:

  1. Adler (German word for eagle)
  2. Hund (German word for dog)
  3. Kuh (German word for cow)

English version:

  1. Eagle
  2. Dog
  3. Cow

I crawled many forums but couldn't find a solution for my problem. I already added the relationship "Entity Translation" in my view but the additional filter and sorts don't help me here.

What I need is a sort "title (English Translation)". Does somebody has a clue how to get this work?!!

Please find here the view's query

  • Did you install the title module?

  • You have to make sure you don't add the field "Content: Title The content title" in your view. This i the core drupal title. You have to add the title field title. Can you report back if this fixes your problem?

  • Thanks Robin, but I am aware of this. My content type contains the title of the Title Module and so does the sort criteria that I added in my views.

  • Yes the sort criteria, but is your field you are displaying also the correct title field?

I solved that by adding this field as a relationship to the view and so name:field became accessible as sort criteria, which I then chose instead of content:field.
