I would like to extend the 'Content Localization' module such that when I press 'Update Localization', some extra module changing operations would be performed. Is there a way to do this without access to the DNN source code?

If that's not possible, how may I determine which tabs/pages are connected to the 'master' page in localization? I had a look at the Tabs table but the 'ParentID' column seems to refer to page hierarchy, not localization hierarchy.

translated pages are connected via GUIDs near the end of the column list (sorry, I don't have the names at hand).
What Actions do you want to perform? ATM, I am not sure, whether there is an Event, you may hook onto.

Hi Sebastian

Thanks for the reply - turns out that LocalizedVersionGuid column was hiding in plain sight!

I want to hook on to when modules get copied over to the localized page, either through 'Add in Missing Languages' or if there already exists a localized page I tick the checkbox to copy the module over, then click on 'Update Localization'. The custom module would then duplicate its internal configuration (e.g. some custom settings) from the source module in a separate table. 

I discovered that ImportModule method in IPortable seems to trigger when I click 'Add in Missing Languages' but it seems to fire VERY late (e.g. when I change pages), but critically it can fire a second time which then overwrites the target module custom configuration with the source module custom configuration. This is a big problem and I don't understand where in the DNN lifecycle 'ImportModule' fires or how the parameters are assigned.

Whoops, it's not LocalizedVersionGuid, it's the DefaultLanguageGuid mapped to the parent's UniqueId column.
