Hi Ard,
at the moment I have more hippo:translation nodes for some folders.

Is there any bugfix / workaround possible for not getting always the  
first translation by mean of getLocalizedName()? Should this be filed  
on JIRA?

It's still a work in progress, but the basic idea about multilingual  
is that we have a folder for each multilingual document; in each  
folder documents are created with the name of the corresponding  
language ("it", "en", "es"...).

In addition to this, folders are (or better should be... ;-))  
translated as well.

If there is no way / plan to fix the behaviour of getLocalizedName()  
for folder, I think we will need to switch back to the "CMS way" :-(
