I have same problem as yours, and I had search every where for a useful solution,but couldn't found any thing..
so I think to a new way for solve this problem,and I did.
this is what I did and know I have different article in each languages in pages,and when i go to each article and want to translate it to another language its work in simple way...
for example you have some Articles,some of them in EN,some of them in FR and some in RU..
then you most make 3 category like this Article EN
then put each article in right category and go to module manager...
click on the check box before module you want to load articles and select a language from joomfish language selector,when translation page opened, in translate part select the right category.
For example if you select RU from joomfish language selector so select "Article Ru" from translation part...
then click on the publish check box and save it.
know when you change languages in simple way modules loads different categories,and you just see the articles in right languages..
if you want to change language of articles when its open you must go to article manager and click on the check box before the article and select your language from language selector,and past your translate in translation box....don't forgot to click on publish check box...
I hope this will be useful
