ciao Tomas!

i was "theorically" near your solution..
i just didn't know about TCEFORM.pages_language_overlay.sys_language_uid.disabled !

i just add that if a local editor wants a content to be multilanguage/international, he could make just the international version.
then in the http://italy.website.com subdomain i show all local news + the international italian translated ones...

yes, all this could really work well!

big thanks!
