We have the same issue on a TYPO3 7.6.15.

It occurs not on only on tt_content, but also on sys_categories, pages_language_overlay and others.
Additionally, pages_language_overlay does not respect if a sys_language is set to hidden.

I can confirm this for TYPO3 7.6.23. Can someone give a hint, what the origin of this issue can be?

I tested this TS property on 6.2.31, 7.6.32, 8.7.26, 9.5.7 and 10.0.0-dev (latest master); and so far I've seen that

- it seems to affect only the "make new translation of this page" link in page module > languages view
- It works only on 7.6.32 and 8.7.26 (and only for the link I mentioned)

I don't know if it has ever meant to work as described on this issue; the documentation https://docs.typo3.org/m/typo3/reference-tsconfig/master/en-us/PageTsconfig/Mod.html#disablelanguages just says:

Comma-separated list of language UID which will be disabled in the given page tree.

Hey Tymek,

I will close this issue now. It's a matter of a very bad conceptual problem which we overcame with Site Languages where you can do this on a per-tree level, and also on a per user and per-workspace level, if necessary.

This option now works for all areas (page module, form engine etc).

Hope it's oK with you, but it's hard to fix in TYPO3 v8, and putting the energy in there does not seem reasonable.
