An editor wanted to translate a page but he got an error that "tableName" is null. Afterwards, the translated page was not created.

After some testing I found out that

Ursprungstext (l10n_parent) [pages:l10n_parent]
was not set. If the editor has the right for this field, the translation worked.
The error message in the picture appeared with L10nMgr installed and activated.

If I deactivate L10nMgr the editor gets only a spinning circle and nothing happens, after he had chosen to translate the page. (So the issue does not seem to be related only to the l10nmgr extension.)
If the editor cancels the process after 20sec and goes back via the browser back button the translated page wasn't created.

When an admin then tries to translate the page he then will get a message, that the translated page already exists (which is wrong, because the translated page does not exist) and therefore it's now impossible to create a translation.

Thanks for creating the issue. This is well known and changed with #89672 as the exclude property has been removed from l10n_parent.

You can adopt this for your projects by removing the setting from tca as well.

I am closing this issue because it has been solved.
