I'm working on a custom solution that leverages the ECK module to handle the entity field creation and display. These custom ECK entities are then attached to nodes via a custom interface.

I'm trying to also build in the ability to translate these entities.

I have a controller that displays the form:

namespace Drupal\MODULE\Controller;

use Drupal\Core\Controller\ControllerBase;
use Drupal\content_translation\Controller\ContentTranslationController;

class MODULEController extends ControllerBase {

  public function edit($node) {
    $entity        = MODULE_load_entity($node);
    $entity_form   = [];
    if ($entity) {
      $form_state_additions = [];
      $operation = 'default';

      // Determine if the entity being added/edited is an origin or a
      // translation and handle the translation if applicable. Start by
      // determining the entity language and the current language.
      $languages        = \Drupal::languageManager()->getLanguages();
      $current_langcode = \Drupal::languageManager()->getCurrentLanguage()->getId();
      $entity_langcode  = $entity->get('langcode')->getValue();
      $entity_langcode  = $entity_langcode[0]['value'];
      if ($entity_langcode != $current_langcode) {

        // Create the translation elements on the form.
        $manager    = \Drupal::service('content_translation.manager');
        $controller = new ContentTranslationController($manager);
        $controller->prepareTranslation($entity, $languages[$entity_langcode], $languages[$current_langcode]);

        // Use the add form handler, if available, otherwise default.
        $operation = $entity->getEntityType()->hasHandlerClass('form', 'add') ? 'add' : 'default';

        $form_state_additions['langcode'] = $languages[$current_langcode]->getId();
        $form_state_additions['content_translation']['source'] = $languages[$entity_langcode];
        $form_state_additions['content_translation']['target'] = $languages[$current_langcode];
        $form_state_additions['content_translation']['translation_form'] = !$entity->access('update');
      }

      $entity_form = $this->entityFormBuilder()
        ->getForm($entity, $operation, $form_state_additions);
    }

    return $entity_form;
  }
}

This allows me to create the default version and the translated version and the data in the tables looks ok. But when I try to edit the translated version I get this exception:

The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.InvalidArgumentException: Invalid translation language (fr) specified. in Drupal\Core\Entity\ContentEntityBase->addTranslation() (line 863 of core/lib/Drupal/Core/Entity/ContentEntityBase.php).

Obviously I'm doing something wrong, but I can't seem to figure out what it is. Any insight into fixing these issues would be much appreciated.

UPDATE4: issue from the previous update fixes the first issue. I've removed it from the ticket since the second issue still remains.

I was treating the creation of the entity translation the same as the editing of the translation. See the following code change which takes into account both types of form.

<?php

namespace Drupal\MODULE\Controller;

use Drupal\Core\Controller\ControllerBase;
use Drupal\content_translation\Controller\ContentTranslationController;

class MODULEController extends ControllerBase {

  public function edit($node) {
    $entity        = MODULE_load_entity($node);
    $entity_form   = [];
    if ($entity) {
      $form_state_additions = [];
      $operation = 'default';

      // Determine if the entity being added/edited is an origin or a
      // translation and handle the translation if applicable. Start by
      // determining the entity language and the current language.
      $languages        = \Drupal::languageManager()->getLanguages();
      $current_langcode = \Drupal::languageManager()->getCurrentLanguage()->getId();
      $entity_langcode  = $entity->get('langcode')->getValue();
      $entity_langcode  = $entity_langcode[0]['value'];
      if ($entity_langcode != $current_langcode) {

        // Editing an existing translation.
        if ($entity->hasTranslation($current_langcode)) {

          // Use the edit form handler, if available, otherwise default.
          $operation = $entity->getEntityType()->hasHandlerClass('form', 'edit') ? 'edit' : 'default';

          // Set the form state additions.
          $form_state_additions = [];
          $form_state_additions['langcode'] = $languages[$current_langcode]->getId();
          $form_state_additions['content_translation']['translation_form'] = TRUE;
        }

        // Adding a new translation.
        else {

          // Create the translation elements on the form.
          $manager    = \Drupal::service('content_translation.manager');
          $controller = new ContentTranslationController($manager);
          $controller->prepareTranslation($entity, $languages[$entity_langcode], $languages[$current_langcode]);

          // Use the add form handler, if available, otherwise default.
          $operation = $entity->getEntityType()->hasHandlerClass('form', 'add') ? 'add' : 'default';

          // Set the form state additions.
          $form_state_additions['langcode'] = $languages[$current_langcode]->getId();
          $form_state_additions['content_translation']['source'] = $languages[$entity_langcode];
          $form_state_additions['content_translation']['target'] = $languages[$current_langcode];
          $form_state_additions['content_translation']['translation_form'] = !$entity->access('update');
        }
      }


      // Build the entity form.
      $entity_form = $this->entityFormBuilder()
        ->getForm($entity, $operation, $form_state_additions);
    }

    return $entity_form;
  }
}
