Policies for translator role (3.8)

Saturday 10 June 2006 11:50:28 am - 7 replies

I'm trying to set up a role for translators, restricted to creating new translations of existing objects, and editing that translation, both restricted to a specific language.
It appears that the content/edit function is required, the content/translate function alone doesn't give the user enough permissions to create a new translation. However, if a policy includes the content/edit function, the user can also create and remove object relations. How can I prevent that?

Hi Marc
mayby try with:
content/versionread - (Status( Draft , Published , Pending ))

Maybe I wasn't clear, but I want to limit the rights, rather than extend them, so I don't need content/create, and I want the translator to only edit text, not object relations. Content/edit is needed to translate/edit text fields, but it also allows creation/deletion of object relations, that's what I want to prevent.

Did U try to check "Disable translation" field in your class /Object relation attribute/ ?

I'm not talking about attribute relations here, but object relations on the object level, as specified in the Related Objects section at the bottom of the content/edit view.

Hi Marc

I think that what you want to achieve is not possible at the moment.

You can always post an enhancement request for it.

In my opinion, to create translations of existing objects, the user should not need the content/edit function, just the content/translate function. But how it is setup in 3.8, translating content is done in the content/edit view, so a user who is doing just translations of existing objects also need permission for edit, and thus enabling creation/deletion of object relations.
So, it seems object translation is seen (by eZ publish developers) as an extension to object editing, rather than as a limitation, which would be more logical, in my opinion.
I wonder how other creators of multi-language sites think about this.

Any news on this matter?
Not being able to separate Edit right and Translation right is a real limitation for an international community deployment.
