Permalinks of custom collection documents are not translated. #87

I am using this plugin for a site with custom collections. In addition to the _posts folder I have an _faq folder that contains a collection of frequently asked questions. For SEO purposes each of these questions should end up with its own translated URL.

In my _config.yml I added

    output: true

and the collection documents are rendered into each language folder. However, the permalinks are always in the default language. I.e. for a site with languages ["de", "en"] (German being the default), all rendered versions of the question

layout: faq

permalink: /faq/wieviel-kostet-es
permalink_en: /faq/how-much-does-it-cost

end up having the URL <lang>/faq/wieviel-kostet-es (including the English version).

I looked at the source code of the plugin and realized the permalink translation is missing for documents. Simply copying the permalink translation code to the document code actually fixed the problem, i.e. all links are translated correctly.

Maybe you could double-check whether this is the right way to do it and include this fix in the next release.

Oh, one more thing: The link translation tag {% tl ... %} currently doesn't work for collection documents either. I managed to fix this by inserting

collections = site.collections.values.collect{|x|}.flatten
pages = site.pages + collections
