I’m using the multilingualpress Plugin. Our Website is a little bit complex, we have different Post-Types and these Post-Types got different connections among each others. For connect the different Post-Types we use the Posts 2 Posts. Forthermore the different Post Types got dirfferent custom Meta-Information.
Both Plugins work really well.
But now I have a little porblem an d I hope someone can help me.
When I translate the german Post to the English, I want to get the setted connections and the custom meta-data in the english post too.
Can I add the connections and the custom meta-data in the Mlp_Translatable_Post_Data.php? Is it possible, that it works like this? Where I have to implement the Connections and Meta-Data in the MultilingualPress?

public function save($post_id, WP_Post $post) {

        if ( ! $this->is_valid_save_request( $post ) ) {

        $post_id = $this->get_real_post_id( $post_id );

        $this->save_context = array(
            'source_blog'    => get_current_blog_id(),
            'source_post'    => $post,
            'real_post_type' => $this->get_real_post_type( $post ),
            'real_post_id'   => $post_id,

        // Get the post
        $post_data = get_post( $post_id, ARRAY_A );
        $post_meta = $this->get_post_meta_to_transfer();

        // Get the post connections
        $post_connection = p2p_get_meta( $post_id, 'type', true);

        /** This filter is documented in inc/advanced-translator/Mlp_Advanced_Translator_Data.php */
        $post_data = apply_filters( 'mlp_pre_save_post', $post_data, $this->save_context );
        if ( ! $post_data || ! is_array( $post_data ) ) {

        $file     = $path = '';
        $fileinfo = array();

        // Check for thumbnail
        if ( current_theme_supports( 'post-thumbnails' ) ) {
            $thumb_id = get_post_thumbnail_id( $post_id );
            if ( 0 < $thumb_id ) {
                $path     = wp_upload_dir();
                $file     = get_post_meta( $thumb_id, '_wp_attached_file', true );
                $fileinfo = pathinfo( $file );
                include_once( ABSPATH . 'wp-admin/includes/image.php' ); //including the attachment function
        // Create the post array
        $new_post = array(
            'post_title'   => $post_data['post_title'],
            'post_content' => $post_data['post_content'],
            'post_status'  => 'publish',
            'post_author'  => $post_data['post_author'],
            'post_excerpt' => $post_data['post_excerpt'],
            'post_date'    => $post_data['post_date'],
            'post_type'    => $post_data['post_type'],
            'connected_type' => $post_connection ['connected_type'],
            'connected_items' => $post_connection ['connected_items'],
            // Create the connection part of the array
           // 'p2p_id' => $post_connection['post_connection'],


I hope someone can help me!
Thanks in advance!
Or maybe there are other possibilities?
Is there a possibility to duplicate or mirror a post?
