    Translation keys are now inherited so that it works like this: When translating an item type and clicking "Add missing translations for this item type" we get keys for all fields on the selected item type, both the fields on the item type itself and any inherited fields, e.g. Person → Person.Name, Person.Name.Description Student → Student.School, Student.School.Name, Student.Name, Student.Name.Description MathStudent → MathStudent.Grade, MathStudent.Grade.Description, MathStudent.School, MathStudent.School.Name, MathStudent.Name, MathStudent.Name.Description When translating a field on an item type we first look for a non-empty translation of the item field on the actual item type. If it exists we use it. Otherwise, if the field is inherited, we look for a translation of the field on the parent item type. Example: When getting a translation for MathStudent.Name we first look for a translation of MathStudent.Name. If that doesn't exist we look for Student.Name. If that does not exist we look for Person.Name.
