This is a follow-up to.
Currently enabling translation for a particular bundle requires going down three level of configuration: entity type/bundle/field. And most of them have the wrong default values in place, which means that every time a new entity/bundle is added all non-shared fields need to be enabled for translation. Moreover these settings are split accross different configuration pages, which makes almost impossibile for a user not knowing the required workflow to correclty setup translation without using the help section.
Another non-UX related problem with the current approach is that it requires every entity to provide its own configuration UI, otherwise even if an entity is supported out of the box by ET, it will not possibile to translate it because there is no way to enable translation for it.
Implement a centralized workflow allowing to setup all the three level of configuration for any defined entity type and bundle and put sensible defaults in place, mainly make fields translatable by default. We agreed to start from the current D7 configuration page, add the field configuration level to it and improve the overall UX.
We want to exploit this UI to configure also language settings leveraging what already implemented in .
This works with language enabled alone or also with entity translation.
with entity translation enabled
without entity translation enabled
Original screenshots in #8.
Provide a set of mockups describing how the new UI should work Implement them Provide test coverage Follow-ups opened use label for= for accesssibility code review repurposefor ARIA
- (maybe) open Q2 "Field UI formatter settings model" follow=up
- identify any missing follow-ups
put new patch on server for accessibility review(not needed, and see the ARIA followup) (feedback gotten) Accessibility review. See #119, #71 (see the ARIA followup)
User interface changes
No particular API change foreseen.

Global settings page for all translatable entities, alongside the per-entity ones. Follow-up #81 Currently the implementation of the entity translatability setting is a bit hacky, we need to clean it up now that landed. This might be done here and not part of a follow-up.opened based on
