Basically, the bool-parameter version of put() no longer exists; there are now put() and add(). I can't remember what the boolean meant exactly, so I don't know which one is right for this situation.

The error happens because the third parameter is unconditionally interpreted as a translator object, which is why the function attempts to call put_value() on it.
