If I don't give "edit any review nodes" permission to translator role, but give "Translate entities of type Node" permission - the translator doesn't see "Add translation" link on "Translate" tab (screenshot: http://pix.am/GdN0/)

If I give "edit any review nodes" permission to him - there is no sense in restricting him by Entity Translation module permissions - since the role seems to get full access to all fields - both in original node and in translated node.

Can someone explain to me which permissions should I give to "translator" role so translators can only translate nodes, not edit the original node?

To let a translator edit only translations you need to grant an edit permission on the node but not grant the 'edit original values' permission (nor the 'edit shared values' permission probably).

thanks for the module.
it took to me a while until i realize that i had also to activate "Enable translation workflow permissions" in admin/config/regional/entity_translation to get the "Edit original values" to show in the permissions page "admin/people/permissions"

it would nice if in the documentation you put step by step how to set that translators can translate without been able to edit original. i would do it, but my english it is not good enough.

again, thanks for this module :)

If you can provide me an initial draft I can work on fixing any issue I'm able to spot (I'm not a native english speaker too :)

@plach, thanks for the offer. i take it :)
but now i am struggling with a shipping method with commerce in a custom module...
next month i will do other shop, come here in the moment that i am doing it and write the process.
also it would be interesting to now if for menus there is a tool to be able to translate all in one time or table that it is compatible with entity translation, instead of having to go to each menu item.

I think you can use the regular core .po import/export process: i18n_menu should leverage it and ET just builds upon i18n_menu.

thanks @plach. i explained bad. i mean custom menu items.
i have used translation_table before but i think it doesnt work with your module... :)
i wanted to ask if i am right and if there is a similar alternative.
thanks a lot for your help :)

I was referring to custom menu items too, I think. Do you mean the ones you create from the node form in Menu settings? If so I confirm the suggestion in #6: export the strings in the menu group, translate them with poedit or a similar tool and then reimport the resulting .po file.

thanks @plach. i will do that for spanish that i will translate, but we are going to translate for german and french with normal translators... i dont know if they will feel confortable with this way of doing or they prefer going one by one menu item...

i assign this issue to me, so i dont forget the collaboration that you offer and i accepted :)
