I am using Joomla 2.5 with the Language-Switcher Module and Plugin to built an multilingual site.

The main problem is: switching the language always leads to the translated homepage, but not to the translated menu-item., so I ran into the problem to find all translations of an Menu item.

Based on the internal Structure, the Language-filter only filters the page items with suitable language settings. So each menu item, or link, or url is unique and it is not possible to define something like a 'root' menu item for every translated menu item. Is it possible to create a Plugin that inserts a new button in the menu-item-creation-form?

Hello,

you have to associate your menu items. You can see this documentation:

What you could do to create set of menu items for a language. After that you could use the Batch Process to creates menu items for other languages, one set at a time.
