[BUG?] Missing text '/some/translation' for 'English' in OnPage Edit mode


I have a website with several languages (nl-NL, en-UK etc but NO en). No fallback languages have been set. Replacement languages have been set but not for nl-NL.

The translation (lang) files work fine when viewing the website in browser. But, when editting the page in the cms like so:

I get the missing text for English message for all translatable items.

Hi Dick!

What exactly is it that is not working? Are the translations in the preview/editing-iframe incorrect while in the edit view? Or are there texts in the UI that are incorrect when you are you are editing a specific language? Could you post a screens shot perhaps?

There are translations in the preview/editing-frame missing because it is looking for them in English. I am not using English so of course the texts are missing. The question remains: why would it be searching in English?

I debugged it and it seems to be a bug. We are using a different URL to route to the page when editing it since you might actually change the friendly URL while editing. Unfortunately, this URL is considered to be a part of the user interface which has different rules to set the UI culture, for instance using the settings from the current profile. I have created the following bug for this:
