Description

Currently the TCA of TYPO3 knows these ctrl options to enable and manage translation behavior for tables:

- languageField (sys_language_uid by convention)
- transOrigPointerField (l10n_parent by convention, l18n_parent in tt_content)
- translationSource(l10n_source by convention)
- transOrigDiffSourceField (l10n_diffsource by convention, l18n_diffsource in tt_content)

Each of these have 2 purposes:

1. Enable translations or a related feature
2. Tell TYPO3 which DB field to use in queries

This by itself is a problem but the main question is whether the names of these DB fields need to be configurable at all.

There are recently a lot of consolidations and simplifications in TCA. The same could be applied here:

- Turn these options from string to bool, thus only enable/disable the feature. TYPO3 would then use fixed DB field names and thus fully manage these.
- Consolidate/merge these options with better and clearer names, e.g. 'enableTranslations' => true, 'trackTranslationDifferences' => true or similar.
