function hook_config_translation_info


Introduce dynamic translation tabs for translation of configuration.

This hook augments MODULE.config_translation.yml as well as THEME.config_translation.yml files to collect dynamic translation mapper information. If your information is static, just provide such a YAML file with your module containing the mapping.

Note that while themes can provide THEME.config_translation.yml files this hook is not invoked for themes.


array $info: An associative array of configuration mapper information. Use an entity name for the key (for entity mapping) or a unique string for configuration name list mapping. The values of the associative array are arrays themselves in the same structure as the *.config_translation.yml files.
