When Objects are placed outside a Site Configuration (root tree of site), translation fails to work. This was not an issue TYPO3 9. It is common to share translatable objects between different site configurations. It seems to be related to the selection of sys_languages. Inside a site-tree all available languages are available. Outside a site-tree only the main language is availble. Hence, no translation. h3. *Screenshots* h4. Image 1: my site configuration !image1.jpg! h4.
