This is a follow-up in response to #1188388-54: Entity translation UI in core comment 54 item 5

Problem

It's hard to find the location of the setting to enable translation on fields. Following a pattern of showing a hint as to the value of a setting in a collapsed fieldset or in a vertical tab, the entity translation ui can be improved.

proposed resolution

A) add a message automatically
or
B) pre-fill the revision log

Remaining tasks

Implement a resolution.

User interface changes

Suggested change: http://drupal.org/files/et-ui-s005-can revisions tab be translation aware 2012-10-03_1248.png

API changes

Are there API changes/additions that would affect module, install profile, and theme developers?

Comments

Gabor's comments from comment 57 in the original issue:

#54/5: on revisions; through the UI people can only edit one translation at once, so we could theoretically inject some log message information on which language they edited; not sure what language would that log message be? also would it be injected after the user provided message? should we automate that or just prefill the log message and let the user edit it as needed/intended? on the diff module side-note, yes, diff module should be compatible with this, the underlying field language support was already in Drupal 7 :)
