I am currently busy debugging an extension a colleque wrote. That means I have not full knowledge of how the extension works, and my limited experience with Joomla does not help me with a little problem I encountered.
The extension has an entry in the admin menu, however the menu entry is not translated and uses a placeholder alias from the database... that is until I click the menu link. As long as the menu item is active, the translation works correctly.
I looked and see that the language files are there and apparently correctly configured, the language folder is tagged under files in the manifest file, too.
Has anyone a hint for me where that strange incoherence could come from?
