wondering if nobody else has this problem. Run Drupal 8.3.3, but had this problem in previous versions too.

I create a node type "news"
Add a date - field
Set type to multilingual (de, en)

Create various news nodes with different dates
Create translations for all news nodes

Add a new views -> type "news"
Filter Criteria -> Translation Language
Sort Criteria -> Our date field

If you check the sorting of the translation language, its very wild and make no sense at all. You can replace the date field with a number field, the sorting didnt work here too?!

Any Ideas?
Best, Alex

Okay if date field ist set to translatable sorting works... but why should it be necessary to translate the field? A news date doesn't change just because of the translation language. Could be optimized.
