in one of our journals we are encountering the following problem:
The journal is setup as being bilingual german and english on all three “levels” (ui, forms and submissions) with german set as the primary language. Article and issue metadata can for each individual case either be german or english. The behaviour we would expect is now, that when there is only either a german or an english translation of a given metadata field (but not both) the respective other one should be shown regardless of the frontend language selected by the user. It seems to work for articles that way. But for Issue Titles, it only works for german; if there is only an english translation and the selected frontend language is german the title is not show and instead the Volume number is shown instead.
I was wondering: Is this behaviour intended? If so, are there any work arounds (preferably not involving changes in the templates)? Or maybe i’m doing something wrong?
All hints are highly appreciated.
