I'm new to Drupal and a little bit confused.
I want to make entity_types translatable by using the i18n module. Content types are already perfectly translatable, but I couldn't find out how to duplicate that. I managed to use the hook_i18n_string_info() to kind of register entity_type to the translation module this way:
$groups['entity_type'] = array( 'title' => t('Entity Type'), 'description' => t('Translatable entity types'), 'format' => FALSE, 'list' => TRUE, );
When I do this, under "Administration -> Configuration -> Regional and Language -> Translate Interface -> Overview" I now see the column "Entity Type" with "n/a" at the target language and "0/0" at the default language.
After switching to the tab "translate", under "Limit search to" I can select "Entity Type", but nothing is found (the message "No strings available." is displayed).
After switching to the tab "strings", I can select "Entity Tape", but after clicking on "refresh strings" it says "Cannot refresh strings for Entity Type." (5/5 items were processed, I suppose these are the standard entity types?!).
What I tried so far but without any effect was the hook_i18n_object_info():
$info['entity_type'] = array( 'title' => t('Entity Type'), 'class' => 'EntityType', 'key' => 'id', 'base path' => 'admin/structure/entity_type/edit', 'placeholders' => array( '%entity_type' => 'name', ), 'edit path' => 'admin/structure/entity-type/%entity_type/edit', 'translate tab' => 'admin/structure/entity-type/%entity_type/translate', 'string translation' => array( 'textgroup' => 'entity_type', 'type' => 'type', 'properties' => array( 'label' => t('Label'), ), 'translate path' => 'admin/structure/entity-type/%entity_type/translate', ), );
I did not find anything useful about this topic but this link: http://hojtsy.hu/blog/2011-jun-01/challenges-satisfy-translation-needs-drupal-and-how-do-you-code-it-now
I frequently emptied the cache with "drush cc all" and used "drush fra" also.
Thanks in advance!
