To reproduce this error: ========================
1)Create a new user, and assign them to the Translator group
2)Log in as the translator, and navigate to a published information object
3)Click edit, make a change, and click save

Resulting error: ================
Translator is booted to a "no permission to access that page" message. Returning to the edit page and clicking cancel will only return the user to the "no permission" page. The published information object will revert to draft status, and the translator will no longer be able to view it (see "/p/qubit-toolkit/issues/detail?id=1718":issue 1718 ).

Expected result: ================
Translation of content is made and saved.

Resulting error:
As a result of these actions, the original archival description is reset to draft status.

2) Log in as Admin.
3) View English/original archival description that translation was attempted upon. Instead of remaining published, the information object is now listed as "draft" status.
