Using render_model with hvad-translated fields (say {% render_model object 'translated_field' %} return error if the hvad-enabled object does not exists in the current language.
This is documented along with a workaround, but a proper fix is needed

@digi604 the only solution I can think of is making the templatetag hvad-aware usign something like:

    if hasattr(instance, 'lazy_translation_getter'):
        extra_context['content'] = instance.lazy_translation_getter(attribute, '')
        extra_context['content'] = getattr(instance, attribute, '')

There is another multilingual implementation that uses the same lazy_translation_getter API as hvad, so we are compatible with it too

if this fixes the problem: go with it
