Inherit value from parent language when translating pages and blocks


Is it possible to globally set some sort of setting on properties in pages and blocks to inherit parent value when doing a translation of that page/block?

This should apply to all kinds of properties no matter the type.


Page                 Lang                  Propertytype          Name            Value

ContentPage    EN                     string                      Header          Foo

Now when I translate this page into Polish I want the default values to come from the above

Page                 Lang                  Propertytype          Name            Value

ContentPage    PL                      string                      Header          Foo

Im looking for something similar to what can be found under the configure properties in admin. But this will give me the parents page properties values when creating a new page. And that I don't want. Can this behaviour be modified? Or can this be applied via an attribute in code?

Hello Martin 

Have you seen the Languages add on gadget? It gives the option to start by copying the master language first:

Hi David,

Thank you for the reply. Yes that should work in most cases. Problem with that one in our specific case is that it sets the name on the new block/page to the same as the one you selected to translate from. But it might be possible to tweak it. Thanks for the suggestion!
